Stats on most tackles and interceptions show value of best two Newcastle players

4 years ago

The Newcastle players have been a mixed bunch so far this season.

As the team has generally struggled and find themselves in the bottom three after five games, some though have excelled.

Maybe no surprise to see who the best two Newcastle players have been, as they are simply carrying on from last season, especially their form in the second half of last season.

The Other 14 is a Twitter account that specialises in stats and tables for the players and teams other than the ‘big 6’ in the English Premier League.

Here The Other 14 have come up with some great analysis and their latest is a table showing which players have made the most combined tackles and interceptions in the course of these opening five Premier League games.

Very predictable that Fabian Schar and Isaac Hayden feature so highly.

They have both been excellent this season and will be key this season, if Newcastle United are to get through it without disaster.
