Morgan Schneiderlin may be the man grabbing all the headlines at the moment as the Frenchman nears a Man United move, but according to these Opta stats he's not top dog when it comes to bossing the midfield. 

Indeed, while the likes of Alex Song, Cesc Fabregas and Wanyama all made around 75 tackles last season, Chelsea man Nemanja Matic is way ahead of the rest of pack with 101 tackles won in the 2014/15 season. 

There's no doubt the Serb deserved his place in the PFA Team of the Year, and now he looks set for an even better coming campaign.
