We use tracking data to reveal the Premier League players with the most sprints this season.
The EA Player Performance Index uses real time player movement tracking to show how far and how fast players run on the pitch.
Sprints are defined as runs in excess of 25.2 kilometres per hour and each individual sprint is logged.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is a clear leader in this season's Premier League having made 560 sprints already, 27 ahead of Watford's Ikechi Anya.
With Jurgen Klopp expected to introduce his intense pressing game, he might well be encouraged to know that Liverpool duo Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner are both among the top 10 too.
But it's Bournemouth who are the real sprint stars with three of their players filling the podium places for the most sprints in an individual match so far this season.
Matt Ritchie is the only man to make more than 100 sprints in a single game (against Watford) beating team-mate Marc Pugh (97) into second with Simon Francis (95) in third.
Here is the list of the top 20 sprinters in the Premier League as well as a look at the players to have made the most sprints in any one match…
