Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City are the best represented Premier League clubs in the statistical team of the season, according to stats.

The Blues, who are currently six points clear at the top of the Premier League table with a game in hand over their closest rivals, have four top-performing players in the team.

Branislav Ivanovic is joined by Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa, while Arsenal new-boy Alexis Sanchez makes the cut along with Santi Cazorla.

Sanchez is fifth in the Premier League for goals scored on 13, while Hazard has completed 145 more passes in the final third (844) than any other player in the English top flight.

Defending champions Manchester City are represented by Gael Clichy and Sergio Aguero.

Manchester United have just one representative – Phil Jones in defence alongside West Ham United’s James Tomkins.
