Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane shared this season’s Premier League Golden Boot.

Yes, we’re stating the obvious there – every man and his dog knows that by now.

But the trio’s success got us thinking – what about the niche tallies achieved each season that aren’t recognised with trophies?

We’re talking most distance covered, highest top speed and most weaker foot goals. That’s right – the unsung stats that don’t usually make the headlines but deserve to be shouted about.

Here at Squawka, we like to think outside the box. So, with a bit of help from Opta, we’ve come up with our very own unique end-of-season stats awards to give some of the game’s lesser known numbers their moment in the sun.

Some of the division’s big hitters feature – they’re top dogs for a reason. But there’s also several nominees that you’ll be surprised to see battling with the cream of the crop for supremacy.

So, without further ado, it’s time to get started. Roll out the red carpet….
