Here are the top 10 tacklers in the Premier League. These are the players who work hard to stop the opposition from building any momentum. They do both jobs, of tracking dribblers and intercepting passes. They are probably the first line of defence for any team.
Apart from Pablo Zabaleta and Ramires, there are no players belonging to any really big team in the list. Morgan Schneiderlin top the list in every stat, followed by West Ham’s Mark Noble. Matthew Lowton is at the 10th spot. Pablo Zabaleta and Ramires are at 6th and 8th spots, respectively.Published 27 Feb 2013, 21:42 IST
