STATS: QPR’s Park completes most passes vs West Ham’s Collins with more than double the interceptions of his team mates

QPR v West Ham

– A first half goal from Bobby Zamora was not enough to let QPR take anything away from their eventual 2-1 defeat to Tottenham. Despite the efforts of Mark Hughes’ men, QPR remain fixed second from bottom.

Ji-Sung Park has continued to successfully integrate himself into the QPR midfield. He’s completed more passes than any other R’s player, 123, according to the EA Sports Player Performance Index.

Adel Taarabt has been trying to contribute with goals from midfield for QPR this season. All 7 of his shots on goal this season have been on target.

– Nedum Onuoha has been turning in some very solid performances for QPR in recent weeks. His 11 interceptions, 92% challenge success rate and 1 foul mark him out as a key man at the back for Mark Hughes’ side.

– A dramatic equaliser from Kevin Nolan rescued a point for West Ham against Sunderland last weekend. It was a fitting goal from the man who had repeatedly tested the Black Cats’ resolve, and just reward for the pressure and dominance exerted by Sam Allardyce’s men.

– West Ham’s Mark Noble is second in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index for total distance covered so far this season, covering 33.93 miles for West Ham.

Noble’s contribution has gone a long way to West Ham being the third highest team overall for distance covered as a squad, with 306.64 miles covered so far.

Noble is supported by team mate Kevin Nolan who is 7th for overall distance covered with 30.53 miles.

James Collin’s continues to be integral to the functioning of West Ham’s defence. He’s made 28 interceptions this season, double that of his nearest team mate in the Hammers’ squad.

Noble has also won more tackles than any other player in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index with 19 so far. Noble attempted ten in the Sunderland game alone, a high for the last round of games.

Noble and Nolan will come up against another typically hard working midfielder in QPR midfielder Ji-Sung Park who has covered 30.11 miles so far this season, enough for 10th place in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index.
