The Premier League 2015/16 began last month and all the twenty teams in the league have already played five matches each. 

Manchester City is currently at the top of the league table with 15 points from the first 5 matches winning all the games so far. They are in sublime form and slowly becoming an unstoppable force in the league. They are clearly looking the favourites to lift the title season. The Cityzens are followed by rivals Manchester United in the third position and Arsenal in the fourth position, 5 points less than the leaders.

Leicester City has been the surprise package this time as they are yet to lose a game under new manager Claudio Ranieri. They are just behind Manchester City in the league table with 11 points from the 5 matches. In our list of top tacklers, Leicester’s Ritchie De La is at the top with 21 tackles. Arsenal’s Francis Coquelin is second in the list. Among the notable names, Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian and Crystal Palace’s Yohan Cabaye are at the ninth and tenth position respectively.

The list of top 10 tacklers in the Premier League is represented graphically below:
