Liverpool and Wolves dominate a list of Premier League players to clock up the most minutes across all competitions this season.

It’s no real surprise that either club are top of the charts for workload, given their exploits in continental competitions.

Wolves started their Europa League campaign back in July, while Liverpool have had the added focus of the Super Cup final and Club World Cup in their schedules.

And current Wolves skipper and former Red Conor Coady is the standout performer, playing every minute of his club’s season bar their involvement in the Carabao Cup.

Coady, 26, has racked up an impressive 3,510 minutes in total since his first appearance of the season.

That came against Northern Irish outfit Crusaders in the second qualifying round first leg of the Europa League back on July 25.

He is joined in the top five by three of his Wolves’ teammates, Joao Moutinho (2nd – 3,221mins), Leander Dendoncker (4th – 3,038), and Raúl Jiménez (5th – 3,019).

The only non-Wolves player to breach the top five is Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, who has also been involved in all of his sides Premier League and Champions League ties, as well as the Super and Club World Cup finals’.
