Data from the EA Sports Player Performance Index has revealed that Eddie Howe has his Bournemouth side working very hard to ensure their Premier League survival.
The Cherries are five points clear of the drop with 13 games to play, and three of Howe's players feature in the top 10 for distance covered this term.
Andrew Surman became the first player to clock over 300 kilometres this season during the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, and he's joined in the top 10 by team-mates Matt Ritchie (seventh with 268.71 km) and Dan Gosling (ninth, 267.91 km).
The statistics reveal that Roberto Martinez's Everton and Tony Pulis' West Brom have also been hard at work, with two Baggies (Craig Dawson and Darren Fletcher) joining a pair of Toffees (Barry and Ross Barkley) in the list.
