Stat Attack: West Ham Away

5 April 2016

Palace stretched their winless run to 14 Premier League games with Saturday's point away to West Ham United, but despite that grim statistic there were positives to take from the draw against one of the top flight's form sides.
  • Mile Jedinak put in another big shift in central midfield, running further than any other player on the pitch (11.06km) during the Eagles' final trip to the Boleyn Ground.
  • On his return to first team duties Jason Puncheon looked bright. The midfielder completed a lung-bursting 71 sprints on the day, more than any other player.
  • As a team Palace covered a greater distance (105.55km) than the Hammers (103.11km), though the home side did have a lot more of the ball (possession: 66.6%-33.4%).
  • The Eagles hit a massive 21 cross from open play during the 2-2 draw, over double West Ham's 10 balls into the box.
  • No player made more tackles than the three completed by both Damien Delaney and Joe Ledley. Whilst Pape Souare's five interceptions was also a game high.
  • Scott Dann's three blocks and Wayne Hennessey's four saves were both the highest of any player on the pitch for each action.
  • Wilfried Zaha has completed 111 take ons so far this term, which is the highest in the Premier League. Only Barcelona's Neymar has completed more in Europe's top five divisions.
