Outrageous Stat Proves Why Swansea's Gylfi Sigurdsson Is Much More Than Raw Talent

​Swansea City playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson has hardly got to prove himself much more to viewers of the Premier League. Nonetheless, a new statistic will endear the Icelandic international even further to his fans.

The Swans' all time top goalscorer in the top flight is currently top of the assists chart in the Premier League this season, creating 11 goals this term, one ahead of closest rival Christian Eriksen.

Although these numbers illustrate the 27-year-old brilliance, especially considering his side's lowly position in the table, it is another statistic which truly emphasise what a top drawer player the former Spurs man is.

Sigurdsson has ran a total of 318.2km so far this campaign, more than any other player in the league, an unreal fact considering the wealth of hard-working players in the Premier League, such as N'Golo Kante and Jordan Henderson.
