Tottenham have revealed that Dejan Kulusevski has covered more ground than any other Premier League player this season.
That has not quite materialised yet, with the 23-year-old not quite showcasing his best in the first four games of the season but he has still delivered some decent displays, both on and off the ball.
While Ange Postecoglou would perhaps want the Swede to be more clinical in the final third, the Tottenham head coach will be over the moon with the shift that the player is putting in.
Kulusevski has the best engine in the Premier League
It has now been revealed that Kulusevski has covered a whopping 47.07 km in Spurs’ first four Premier League matches of the season, which is more than any other player in the competition.
Additionally, the wide-man has also covered the most distance in one single match, covering 13km in the Lilywhites’ 2-0 win over Bournemouth last month.
In fact, that record by Kulusevski against the Cherries is almost half a kilometre more distance than the second on the list – Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva against Burnley.

Kulusevski is an absolute workhorse and always gives the full-back he comes up against a very hard game. However, I do fear that he has been found out a little by opposition defences.
While he was having plenty of success in his first six months in the Premier League since defenders did not know what to expect, they now appear to be giving themselves a yard, forcing himself to cut inside. The Swede’s effectiveness in one vs one situations has thus dramatically declined.
