Sky Sports reveal the teams and players who are putting in the hard yards this season

"Outwork the opposition." It's a recipe for success for Premier League managers past and present.

But whose teams have put in the most hard yards so far this season? Sky Sports investigate.

The club who have covered the most ground in the Premier League, at 1,256km, are AFC Bournemouth.

After Eddie Howe's side West Bromwich Albion, Tottenham Hotspur, Watford and Burnley make up the top five.

Somewhat surprisingly, Jurgen Klopp's high-pressing Liverpool rank 11th, in between Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United.

Despite sitting second in the League table and giving chase to leaders Manchester City, who are ninth for ground covered, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United rank bottom of all Premier League teams.

Yet, despite their low collective total, Man Utd have a player who is in the top four for most distance covered by an individual.

Nemanja Matic's 128km is bettered only by Pascal Gross, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Jack Cork, the Burnley midfielder leading the way for most distance covered.
