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:
Mark Schwarzer, Middlesbrough.
Dan Shittu, Watford
Joseph Yobo, Everton
Liam Rosenior, Fulham
Michael Dawson, Tottenham Hotspur
Stewart Downing, Middlbrough
Mark Noble, West Ham
Patrik Berger, Aston Villa
Mikel Arteta, Everton
