Stats Zone Premier League Team of the Season 2013/14
Central midfielder: Mile Jedinak (Crystal Palace)
The Australian at the heart of everything good about Palace this season racked up some extraordinary numbers. He made more clearances and interceptions, and won more tackles and aerial duels than any other central midfielder. Furthermore, in several of those categories, he won by a country mile. Steven Gerrard was second for clearances with 90 to Jedinak's 133; interception runner-up Youssouf Mulumbu managed 115 to his 139.
His aerial presence effectively added a third centre-back but Jedinak was no slouch on the ball, knitting together Palace's play all over the pitch. Strong enough to win the ball and happy to then use it with intelligent efficiency, Jedinak is a perfect player for Pulis's Palace, and the Stats Zone Premier League Central Midfielder of the Season 2013/14.
