Physioroom.com have decided to work out the most injury-prone players in the Premier League, by totting up the cumulative days players have spent on the sidelines over the past six season. Along with proving the folks at physioroom.com have a bit too much time on their hands, the list also proves that Jack Wilshire is made of glass and that Merseyside is the place where players go to sit out training, with half of the names on the list having spent time at Liverpool or Everton.
Despite Merseyside's primacy, Arsenal fans will look at the top of the list with a knowing grimace: at one and two are Jack Wilshire and Abou Diaby. While Diaby has left England, Wilshire's total days on this list will continue to mount, as he will miss the rest of the season with a fractured leg.
There is one Irish international on the list: Darron Gibson, who is third having missed 792 days through injury. Andy Carroll and Daniel Sturridge, both of whom have been bought by Liverpool are on the list, as, unsurprisingly, are a couple of centre-backs from Manchester: Phil Jones and Vincent Kompany. Sturridge is injured at the moment, too, meaning that if Vincent Kompany comes through Thursday's Manchester derby unscathed, he will be leapfrogged in this list by the Liverpool and England striker.
Perhaps indicative of Chelsea's Premier League successes: they don't have a single player on this list.
Here's the full list of the most injury prone players in the Premier League , with the number of days missed in brackets beside the names.
