Youri Tielemans set to take over as Premier League's most consecutive appearance maker with James Ward-Prowse suspended

JAMES WARD-PROWSE played an incredible 102 consecutive Premier League games for Southampton, with the first in that run dating back to December 2018.

But the midfielder's hot streak will come to an end this weekend.

Ward-Prowse saw red against Chelsea last time out, meaning he is suspended for this Southampton's clash against Leeds this weekend.

And now Leicester City's Youri Tielemans will take over as the outfield player with the most consecutive Prem appearances after Ward-Prowse's suspension.

The Belgian midfielder hasn't missed a single game through suspension or injury for the Foxes since the New Year's Day last year.

West Ham duo Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek aren't too far behind Tielemans' 63 game streak, though.

The Hammers' fitness freaks are on a run of 58 and 55 respectively.

Goal-scoring midfielder Soucek has also covered 80.7kilometres in the Premier League this season, the most out of any player.


Stuart Dallas of Leeds comes next on 45, level with Spurs midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

And Burnley duo James Tarkowski and Matt Lowton have 43 and 41 consecutive Prem appearances between them.

Kasper Schmeichel has played the most consecutive Premier League matches – the Leicester keeper's run stretches back 121 games to August 2018.
