Tackling And Interceptions

Declan Rice

A big part of a holding midfielder’s job is to win tackles and intercept the ball, and in this area, Rice’s stats do hold up pretty well against the best in the world.

The West Ham star averages 4.55 tackles and interceptions per 90 minutes, which is more than Casemiro (4.54), Fabinho (4.11) and Busquets (3.86) but less than Kante (5.23).
