KRANJCAR AND JAMES IN ACTIM TEAM
- Portsmouth Pair Named In The Actim Index Team Of The Week -
Niko Kranjcar and David James` overall performances in Portsmouth`s 2-1 victory over Liverpool have seen the pair named in The Actim Index Team of the Week - the Official Player Ratings of the Barclays Premiership.
Record-breaking Portsmouth goalkeeper James is currently ranked 16th in the Index. He claimed an assist against the Reds when his long ball set up Benjani Mwaruwari's opener. Actim Stats reveal that he has kept 11 clean sheets this season, conceding 39 goals. He has also made 247 saves in 3,447 minutes of first team action.
An early substitute for the injured Matthew Taylor on Saturday, Croatia international Kranjcar slotted home his side's second goal of the game to seal another impressive win for Harry Redknapp`s side and maintain their recent good run.
Kranjcar, who is currently ranked 320th, has scored two goals and made two assists in his 1,221 minutes of Premiership football. He has also had 24 shots and made 25 tackles, two clearances, eight interceptions, one block, 11 dribbles, 10 crosses and 165 passes 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 for the new season to increase the amount of variables a player is now measured by.
The Actim Index Team of the Week is:
Goalkeeper: David James (Portsmouth)
Defenders: John O'Shea (Manchester United), Sami Hypia (Liverpool), Anton Ferdinand and Lucas Neil (West Ham)
Midfielders: Yossi Benayoun (West Ham), Ryan Giggs (Manchester United), Niko Kranjcar (Portsmouth), Francesc Fabregas (Arsenal)
Strikers: Jason Roberts (Blackburn Rovers), Robbie Keane (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.
