One chart-topping stat from every Premier League club in the 2021/22 season

Not every team can top the Premier League table but thanks to these statistics every team can at least top one table.

Manchester City may have collected the most points but what about the other stats that matter - like which team scored the most goals from the penalty spot or which player topped the charts for offside calls.

Planet Sport has gone through the 2021/22 statistics to find at least one stat for each team in which they, or their player, is better than the rest of the Premier League.


The Gunners played 35 games without recording a draw, the most in the division. Currently on a run of 17 games without a draw, they will have to go some to break the record set by north London rivals Tottenham. Spurs went 32 games from the end of the 2017/18 season to March of the 2018/19 season without recording a draw. Ironically, the run was ended by a 1-1 draw with Arsenal.

Aston Villa

Matty Cash of Poland celebrates after winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff qualifying football match

Matty Cash completed the most minutes by an outfield player, racking up 3,380. Wolves' Conor Coady was his nearest challenger with 3,363.

Tyrone Mings made the most clearances off the line in the top flight this season with four.


The Bees' Christian Norgard topped the table for the most tackles made this season, with 109. It put him three clear of his nearest challenger, Aston Villa's John McGinn.


Brighton recorded the highest cross accuracy in the division (26%) but were also the team caught offside the most - 101.

Goalkeeper Robert Sanchez led the way for claims, with 60, 14 clear of second-placed Nick Pope.


James Tarkowski of Burnley

Speaking of Burnley, the Clarets may have bade farewell to the Premier League but it wasn't for the want of effort.

James Tarkowski topped the charts for most blocks, with his 61 putting him nine clear of West Ham's Craig Dawson.

Burnley also delivered the most long balls in the division with 2,619.


The Blues scored the most goals from the penalty spot, with six of their eight coming from the boot of Jorginho. Liverpool and Manchester City converted seven apiece.

Crystal Palace

Conor Gallagher celebrates scoring for Crystal Palace against Everton in December 2021

Palace boast the player who committed the most fouls in the Premier League and the one who was dispossessed the most.

Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher made 65 fouls, one more than Newcastle United's Joelinton, while Wilfried Zaha was robbed of the ball 110 times across his 33 appearances.


The Toffees top the table of own goals (5) and red cards (6), while Jordan Pickford is out in front when it comes to punches having produced 22, two more than Wolves' Jose Sa.

Leeds United

A busy season for Illan Meslier saw him make the most saves, with his tally of 143 putting him 12 clear of nearest challenger Kasper Schmeichel.

Leeds also made the most tackles with 786.

Leicester City

Jamie Vardy Leicester Oct19

It was a pretty mid-table season for Leicester who didn't really excel at anything, good or bad. However, striker Jamie Vardy did top the charts for the most braces scored this season with four.


Mohamed Salah may have been joined at the top of the goalscoring charts on the final day by Heung-min Son but he was out on his own when it came to shots on target. His tally of 60 put him five clear of Harry Kane, with Son some way back on 49.

Salah also recorded the most assists - 13

Manchester City

Joao Cancelo Man City Feb22

Joao Cancelo's 3,908 touches were the most in the Premier League this season, with team-mate Rodri second on 3,246.

Despite City winning the title, they also led the way in woodwork hit (24) and big chances missed, with 65 going begging.

Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo was caught offside 33 times, the most in the division. Burnley's Maxwel Cornet, with 26, was next-best or next-worst depending on how you want to look at.

United also recorded the highest tackle success, with their 61% edging them ahead of Brighton and Norwich (both 60%).

Newcastle United

Eddie Howe and Chris Wood Newcastle Mar22

Chris Wood won the most aerial battles this season, with the former Burnley man recording 205 successes across his time with the Clarets and Magpies.

His nearest challenger was former Burnley team-mate James Tarkowski with 153. Well worth that £25million price-tag...

Norwich City

It was a season to forget for Norwich and it could have been even worse, with the Canaries producing ten clearances off the line, the most in the top flight.

They also had in Grant Hanley the player with the most headed clearances - 109.


James Ward-Prowse scored four free-kicks, the most in the division and also provided 302 crosses which put him 29 clear of second-placed Trent Alexander-Arnold at Liverpool.


Top for shooting accuracy with 40%, Spurs also had the player who was substituted on the most in the division.

Steven Bergwijn was introduced 21 times, putting him one clear of Newcastle's Jacob Murphy.


Roy Hodgson

They may have avoided the ignominy of finishing bottom but the Hornets did top the table for the most defeats in the Premier League, finding themselves pointless on 27 occasions, one more than Norwich.

West Ham United

Fabianski penalty save vs Riyad Mahrez, May2022

The season rather petered out for a threadbare Irons, who in Lukasz Fabianski at least had the keeper who saved the most penalties, the Pole keeping out three.

Said Benrahma should be fresher than most, though having been substituted a league-high 22 times.


Another side for whom a season of promise faded away, Wolves were very much mid-table in everything they did.

However, in Raul Jiminez they did at least have the only player in the division to twice pick up a second yellow card.
