EPL stats: Which clubs have made the most interceptions during the 2022-23 Premier League season?

The wait is nearly over for the supporters, as the new Premier League season is not far away from beginning. With little more than a week left for the new campaign to begin, supporters have every reason to be optimistic about their team’s chances. Some clubs have been able to complete most of their transfer business already, while others are still scrambling to buy new players and offload the others who are not part of their plan.

Nothing gets a supporter more excited than the start of a new campaign. After waiting for long periods in the summer without watching their club in action, it is understandable to see the fans get excited for the new season. While some will be happy to see their side match the levels of the last campaign, the others will be eager to do better than that. However, before looking ahead at the upcoming season, it is important to also look back at some noteworthy moments from last term.

Which club has made the most interceptions?

The team at the top of this list is Southampton with 428 interceptions being made during the 2022-23 Premier League season. The Saints had a disastrous campaign last time out after finishing at the foot of the table, which saw them get relegated from the division first. Nothing worked for them last season, as they struggled to find any sort of consistency and eventually got demoted to the second division.

They were closely followed by West Ham United with 408 interceptions to their name. The Hammers also endured a less-than convincing campaign, as they were regularly involved in the relegation battle. Towards the business end of the season, West Ham somehow managed to stay clear of the bottom three places. Another relegated side, Leeds United, wrapped up the third spot with 392 interceptions.

Manchester United also have a place in the list

This list is largely dominated by sides that have finished in the bottom or mid-half of the table. However, Manchester United are one rare exception. The third-placed side registered a total of 352 interceptions during the league last campaign. Check out the table below to know more about the clubs that have made the most interceptions during the 2022-23 Premier League season.
