Man United bottom for distance covered in the Premier League, Tottenham rank third

Sport360 staff 11/11/2017

Jose Mourinho prides himself on instilling a high work rate among all his players. Or so we thought.

As it so happens, his Manchester United side covers the least ground among all Premier League sides, according to stats for distance covered so far this season reported by Sky Sports.

Of course, that doesn't mean much - they're still second in the league, while the side that covers the most distance, Bournemouth, is 17th, only one point above the relegation zone.

Along with United, the other top six side that doesn't crack the top 10 in this list is Liverpool, which, given their intense pressing style, is somewhat of a surprise. The Reds are in 11th, just below a side with a similar playing style, Huddersfield.

Check out the gallery above for the complete rundown of the 20 Premier League sides.

Eric Bailly has become an integral figure at Manchester United squad this season.

The Ivorian international has put in impressive performances whenever named by Jose Mourinho in the team to eventually become a solid centre-back in their setup.

It therefore doesn’t come as a surprise that at the age of 23, Bailly is already being regarded as one of the top defenders in the Premier League.

While Bailly has played his role in Manchester United conceding the fewest goals this season so far, the video (below) from uMAXit Football‘s YouTube channel takes a look at his individual performances and tactical usage.

Chelsea star Hazard says it would be a dream to play under Real Madrid boss Zidane

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has reignited speculation of a future move to Real Madrid by again talking of his admiration for Zinedine Zidane.

The 26-year-old is under contract at Chelsea until 2020 and has been rumoured to be in negotiations to extend the deal he signed in February 2015.

Hazard, who joined Chelsea from Lille in June 2012, has been continually linked with Real in recent seasons, mainly due to his long-term respect for Zidane, the head coach of the Madrid side.

“Zinedine Zidane would be a dream to have as a coach,” Hazard told RTL in his native Belgium.

“He was my idol when I was little, I have a lot of respect for him.

“Of course I don’t know what will happen in my career in the future, but to play under him would be a dream.

“At this time, though, I’m happy at Chelsea. I still have a lot of things to do at Chelsea, and I’m focused on Chelsea.”

Hazard recovered from an indifferent 2015-16 season to have a major say in Chelsea’s title win of last term, in Antonio Conte’s first season as head coach.

The playmaker has made a slow start to the campaign due to sustaining a fractured ankle on Belgium duty in June.

Hazard also insisted he would be prepared to play for Jose Mourinho again.

Hazard and Mourinho did not shake hands before last Sunday’s Premier League contest between Chelsea and Manchester United, which the Blues won 1-0.

Many pointed to the strained relations when Hazard played with a niggling hip/groin injury in the final months of Mourinho’s second spell as Blues boss, which ended in December 2015.

But Hazard added: “Playing again under Jose Mourinho would not bother me.”
