New research has revealed Liverpool's James Milner to be the hardest working player in the Premier League so far, covering 12.9km per game. 


The statistics provided by the EA Player Performance Index, on behalf of forCrohn’s, show the average distance covered by Premier League players during the 2015/16 season to date, with new boy Milner topping the table with 49.15km. 

Liverpool fans will also be interested to hear Raheem Sterling's work rate, which is actually less at Manchester City than it was last season for the Reds. Sterling’s work rate last season averaged 9.84km per game but is only averaging 9.02km this season. 

Interestingly, Harry Kane and Wayne Rooney are both running their socks off for their clubs, but neither have managed a league goal so far. Does that provide some insight into the way defenders are handling the pair's talents?
