The Premier League is widely considered to be the best and most competitive league in the world, with some of the best players in the world plying their trade in England. As the league heads into the business end of the season, we take a look at some of the most interesting individual stats at this current point.

1. Most Goals - Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) - 19

Mohamed Salah can lay claim to be the best player in the league at the moment with the Egyptian scoring goals for fun in the recent past. He is the driving force for Liverpool and he will need to continue with the same form, if they are to have any chance of pipping Manchester City for the league title.

2. Most Assists - Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) - 11

That Trent Alexander-Arnold leads the assists list despite being a defender, just goes to show what a talent he is and one who many believe will transition to becoming one of the best ball playing midfielders in the future.

3. Most Clean Sheets - Ederson (Man City) - 15

There has been the debate about who is a better goalkeeper between Ederson and Alisson in recent times and the former has reclaimed his best status last season and this time around too.

The Brazilian has already won two Golden Glove awards in his career so far and looks to add another honour to his tally.

4. Most Passes - Joao Cancelo (Man City) - 2164

Another Manchester City player who has improved by leaps and bounds in the past couple of seasons has been Joao Cancelo, with the wing-back leading the charts for most passes completed so far this campaign.

The 27-year-old has established himself as one of the most important players for both club and country.

5. Caught Offside the most - Cristiano Ronaldo (Man United) - 25

Cristiano Ronaldo might be Manchester United's top goalscorer this season and he could have added a lot more to his tally if he hadn't found himself offside, which is the highest for a player this season.

The 37-year-old has come in criticism for his performances in the recent past and it will be interesting to see how he bounces back from this poor run of form.
