Manchester City have suffered the most injuries among Premier League teams this season.
Manuel Pellegrini has seen his squad setback by a remarkable 51 injuries so far - yet City remain just three points off the top of the table.
In contrast, Premier League leaders Leicester City have benefitted from one of the best injury records in the division, according to physioroom.com. The Foxes squad have suffered just 15 injuries between them this term, a huge boost for boss Claudio Ranieri as he leads the team's surprise title challenge.
While City have had to do without key men Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure, Vincent Kompany and David Silva at times this season, Leicester have had Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez available for every Premier League game.
Liverpool, who have had well-documented injury problems involving key men such as Daniel Sturridge, have had the second-most number of injuries with 41, followed by Manchester United, who are fifth in the Premier League despite suffering 40 separate injuries.
Watford were among the favourites for relegation before the season started but are currently in the top half, no doubt helped by having the best injury record in the league. Watford's squad have suffered just 10 injuries this season.
