Is Fergie right about Fletcher?

Opta show who The Premiership's most influential performer might be.

Sir Alex Ferguson has welcomed Darren Fletcher's return to fitness and the statistics show just how influential the Scottish midfielder has been for Manchester United this season.

Fletcher has made 13 Premiership appearances for The Red Devils this term and successfully helped his side to three points on 11 occasions. Only Everton and Tottenham Hotspur (both at Old Trafford) have prevented the United midfielder from finishing on the winning side.

Of the Premiership players who have made 10 or more appearances, Chelsea's Arjen Robben is the only player to average more points per game.

At Old Trafford, John O'Shea is the next highest placed player with 2.42 points per game, closely followed by goalkeeper Roy Carroll (2.41).
