Some stats to chew

Some of the premier league stats and where we stand against the best in the league… The story so far in 2012-2013

Top scorer of the league – boo hoo Robin Van Persie – 18 goals followed closely by Suarez at 17.

Arsenal’s top scorer – Theo Walcott – 11 goals and 5th in the standings, followed by Olivier Giroud who is 18th on the stnading with 9 goals. Cazorla and Podolski are not far behind on 21st and 22nd place with 8 goals. Not bad

Top assists in the league – Podolski, Gerrard and Mata are tied at the top with 9 assists each. So Mata and Podolski are proving to be very valuable players for their respective teams. Walcott is 6th in the assists list with 7

In terms of player discipline none of the Gunners feature in the notorious 26 players who have received maximum yellow or red cards. There are 2 United players (Rooney and Scholes), one Liverpool (Suarez) and two Chelsea players (Ramires and David Luiz)

Fair Play toppers of the league – Southampton has received the least number of cards (25Y) so far followed by Arsenal (23Y 2 R).
