AGBONLAHOR IN ACTIM INDEX TOP 10

Patrik Berger Also Named In Official Team Of The Week

Gabriel Agbonlahor’s goal and overall performance in Aston Villa’s 3-0 demolition of Sheffield United has seen the 20-year-old striker climb up to ninth position in The Actim Index - the Official Player Ratings of the Barclays Premiership.

Agbonlahor gave Villa the lead against the Blades with his ninth goal of the season, powering an unstoppable shot past Paddy Kenny after breaking away from Matthew Kilgallon. Actim Stats reveal that the highly-rated England U21 international has contributed 53 shots, 64 tackles, three clearances, 19 interceptions, one block, 56 dribbles, 70 crosses, 403 passes and six assists in 3,432 minutes of Premiership action.

Another Villa star has also made his mark in this week’s Index. For his goal and involvement in the 3-0 victory, Czech international Patrik Berger was named in the Actim Index team of the week. Berger, who recorded 29 Index points after his performance, has contributed two goals, 16 shots, nine tackles, one clearance, two interceptions, 120 passes, three dribbles, 14 crosses and two assists in 529 minutes of first team football this season.

The Actim Index is calculated using a unique mathematical formula that rates each player’s contribution be it goals, shots, passes, dribbles, tackles, crosses, saves, clearances, blocks, interceptions, time on the pitch or number of points gained by the team with marks deducted for red and yellow cards. Two additional calculations, which take account of player assists and goalkeeper’s clean sheets, have been added this season to increase the amount of variables a player is now measured by.

Analysis of all Premiership games is taking place throughout the season and The Actim Index Team of the Week is:

Goalkeeper

Mark Schwarzer, Middlesbrough.

Defenders

Dan Shittu, Watford
Joseph Yobo, Everton
Liam Rosenior, Fulham
Michael Dawson, Tottenham Hotspur

Midfielders

Stewart Downing, Middlbrough
Mark Noble, West Ham
Patrik Berger, Aston Villa
Mikel Arteta, Everton

Strikers

Carlos Tevez, West Ham
Dimitar Berbatov, Tottenham Hotspur.

The list of the Top 100 players and Top 5 players by position will be available free of charge from the Actim website: www.pa-sport.com/en/products/actim-statistics.html which will be updated during the football season every Tuesday for the Barclays Premiership and every Thursday for The Coca-Cola Championship.

He seems to be coping pretty well with the pressures of expectations of villa fans etc.

Bearing in mind that he has played most of the season on the wing, and part of it wuth a dodgy ankle - great performance. Also, Barry still 8th, Mellberg 48th and Ashley 50th. 4 players in top 50 - apart from top 4 Everton and Blackburn (shows what a good season they have had really) I can't see anybody else up there. Just the foundations we need.

im really glad to see MON playing him up front, not on the wing like he had for most of the season. Thought he got a bit lost out wide on occasion. Up front his pace and reactions as well as his eye for goal will see him become the genuine article in not to long. I agree Dannygav, proper home grown.

Not bad for a kid playing on the Right Wing - Only just behind the Mighty "Berbatov" too ! Wonder where he would be if he had been played up front all season

If he satys injury free next season and played through the middle he will deff be hitting the net regularly.think he surprised mon this season and if the dreaded 2nd season syndrom is avoided he could be a real threat.But its been rumoured mon is lookin at a few strikers bellendamy and keane to name but two so weather gab will be given the same sort of run in the team.Is it too early to start talking about who we want to sign this summer Mr Fear? Think we should try for Bent and Young from Charlton maybe King from Watford? SWP just for the sake of it and sidwell cause he would be a mug to go to chealsea. scott parker and kev nolan for the McCann role Distan and curtis davis.Now i dont exspect to get all of them Randy but hey im sure you could swing it my man.

Top call on Scott Parker sk1nner80, the bloke is immense. Definetely the best option if MON is looking to bring in a holding midfielder. My only problem is where MON intends to play Barry next year? After seeing him play central midfield the last few games, he looks a natural. With Barry and Petrov in the middle next season there wouldnt be room for another central midfielder, unless MON changes the system again.
