- No Premier League player has won more tackles than Palace's hard-working central midfielder Yohan Cabaye (33). The Frenchman has impressed Eagles fans in the nine games so far this season with his defensive efficiency, having been known for his ability on the ball, Cabaye is also proving to be a great player for winning it back.
- Cabaye has also made more interceptions (34) than any other player in the English top flight this season, showing how effective he is in the centre of midfield.
- Palace centre-back Scott Dann has made the second highest number of blocks in the Premier League this season (13), with only Swansea City skipper Ashley Williams and Newcastle United's Fabricio Coloccini ahead of him (both on 14).
- Palace remain the league leaders for set-piece goals, having scored six already this term (joint with Leicester City). Three of those have come from the spot, with top scorer Cabaye continuing his 100% record from 12 yards on Saturday against the Hammers.
