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

The transfer window is open and the attention has shifted to the upcoming season, as clubs are preparing to strengthen their squad wherever possible. For some teams, it is a massive rebuild, while for others, it is just about adding one or two quality players in the right positions. A lot of it depends on where the clubs finished last season in the final Premier League standings.

The recently concluded campaign was filled with several eye-catching moments throughout the course of the term. Teams that were not fancied by many finished higher up in the table, while those predicted to have a solid season fell down in the relegation battle. Even at the top, there was a nail-biting title challenge between Arsenal and Manchester City which was eventually won by Pep Guardiola’s side.

Which club has made the most tackles?

The club at the top of this list is a surprising name in Leeds United. In fact, Leeds are no longer in the Premier League after getting relegated last season. However, they topped this table by making 840 tackles, way more than any other side in the division during the 2022-23 campaign. In a season when a club finished 19th, there aren’t many positives to find, however, this is one they can take with them to the Championship.

Chelsea are second in the table after managing 740 tackles over the course of the season. The Blues also had a nightmare of a campaign, which saw them finish in the bottom half of the standings. Not many would have anticipated to see them secure a 12th-place finish, especially with the huge amount of money they spent in both transfer windows last time out.

Manchester United are placed ninth

Erik ten Hag’s side are sitting further down in the table at the ninth spot. Manchester United have made a total of 658 tackles over the course of the campaign, which turned out to be a fruitful one for the Red Devils since they finished third to seal a return to the Champions League. Check out the table below to find out more about the clubs that have made the most tackles in the 2022-23 Premier League season.
