Fulham v City: Stat hit

Ea_pl_logo_medium
Here are all of the numbers ahead of Sunday's game at Craven Cottage:

  • Craven Cottage's visitors need no introduction, and Fulham will be wary of City's start to the season. Dzeko is the second highest ranked player in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index having netted 6 times averaging a goal every 45 minutes 30 seconds. 
  • Manchester City contribute four players to the top ten (the same as neighbours Manchester United): Dzeko, Silva, Aguero and Kompany
  • Kompany's performance may have been overshadowed by Manchester City's forward players, but Kompany has made more blocks than any other player in the Premier League this season (11)
  • David Silva has been at the heart of City's performance, making more passes in his opponent's half than any other player in the Premier League (139) averaging a pass in his opponents half every two minutes and 37 seconds
  • Aguero's hattrick last game took his tally to the season for 6, though opponents will be worried to hear that the Argentine could get even more dangerous - he has currently hit more shots off target than any other player in the Premier League
  • Fulham's new signing Bryan Ruiz will need to work harder to impress, having not mustered a single attempt at goal in his debut 47 minute performance versus Blackburn
  • Fulham's poor start to the season is reflected in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index, with Danny Murphy their top ranked player in 67th place
  • The midfielder has won 83% of the tackles he has entered into this season, averaging a pass every 6 minutes 21 seconds and covering 12km in the game versus Blackburn
  • Bobby Zamora added to his decent start to the season with his first goal against Blackburn, just rewards for having hit 100% of his shots on target so far
  • Brede Hangeland, meanwhile, continues to do all he can at the back and has won an impressive 93% of tackles he has attempted so far this season
  • City will need to be on their guard in the ar, Fulham's Damien Duff has put in more crosses than any other player in the Premier League this season
