Liverpool boast three players amongst the Premier League’s most tenacious players, while Arsenal and Chelsea stars also feature. Read the full list of most prolific tacklers here:
10. Jon Flanagan (Liverpool)
Tackles per 90 minutes: 2.90
Jon Flanagan actually made his first team debut for Liverpool back in 2011 under Kenny Dalglish, but his career stalled, only making five Premier League appearances over the next two seasons.
He has broken through for a second time this term – this time, holding down a spot thanks to some brilliant performances at both left and right back.
The 21 year-old has proven himself excellent at the defensive side of the game, and is rarely beaten in one on one battles.
