Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil is often accused of being lazy given his demeanour on a football pitch but the stats certainly tell a different story.
In a study conducted by The Telegraph, our most hardworking players, determined by the average kilometres they cover per 90 minutes, has thrown up some interesting conclusions.
Arsenal transfer rumours
Here are the 10 players who lead the way.
10. Francis Coquelin – 9,687km

- Report: Arsenal Offer Ozil Final £275,000/Week Contract
Our most improved player and central to the form we’ve shown in 2015. Coquelin has been everything we’ve lacked over the past few years and his inclusion on the list isn’t a surprise given his natural game is patrolling the pitch behind the midfield.
9. Danny Welbeck – 9,918km
Hailed for his hard work during his time at Manchester United, Welbeck hasn’t let us down during his debut season in that regard. Whether out wide or as a central striker, the 24-year-old has put in a shift.
