Top EPL Players With Most Tackles So Far in 2019/2020 Season

Do you see tackling as a dying art in the English Premier League? Wrong. The EPL is packed with top players who love to have a challenge whether leading on the front line, operating at the centre-field or battling away in defense. Of course, those who fly into duels need to walk a disciplinary tightrope give the high speed of premier league games.

Here are the top five players with most tackles in the EPL so far this season.

1. Ricardo Pereira – Leicester City

A Portuguese national athlete, Richardo Pereira has played a total of 2,070 minutes this season, making 102 tackles in all his appearances. Pereira launched his senior career in 2013 at Vitoria de Guimaraes, becoming the top scorer in that year’s Taca de Portugal competition.
After joining Leicester from Porto in 2018, Pereira has worked hard to prove he’s among the best full-backs on the EPL. The Leicester defender hopes that his consistent club performance will win him a spot in Portugal’s squad for next summer’s Euro 2020 tournament. The full-back has represented his country on the international scale for seven times since 2015, but he’s yet to earn a consistent spot in the team.

2. Wilfred Ndidi - Leicester City

Yet another star player from Leicester, Wilfred Ndidi has been hailed as England’s best defensive midfielder following his recent form. The 23-year-old Nigerian footballer has been a key player for the Foxes this season, recording a total of 87 tackles during his 1,786 minutes in the EPL. Ndidi is among the best players to back at https://th.betway98.com/ for the player of the season. Betway88 also allows you to bet on Ndidi and any of his teammates to score against any tournament.

After suffering a knee injury this season, his absence saw Leicester go on a three-game winless strike this season. The Super Eagles superstar came back to the EPL after astonishingly recovering from his injury, playing from the 34th minute as Nampalys Mendy’s replacement on Wednesday’s victory over West Ham.

3. Aaron Wan-Bissaka – Manchester United

A 22-year-old right-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has grown to be among the most valuable players in the Premier League. The Manchester United man has recorded 81 tackles this season, ranking third despite recent criticisms from fans and football experts. Wan-Bissaka started his premier league career in Crystal Palace, before moving to Manchester United following a £45 million initial deal.

4. Declan Rice – West Ham

While the Hammers has had a rough moment in their Premier League campaign this season, Declan Rice has been quite useful in helping the squad stay away from the relegation zone. The 21-year-old defensive midfielder has recorded 70 tackles this season after appearing for 2,070 minutes.

5. João Moutinho – Wolves

A Portuguese National, João Moutinho has made 65 tackles this season after playing for 1,980 minutes. Moutinho made his premier league debut on August 2018, featuring in the 2-2 draw against Everton.
