The raw data confirms some suspicions but also throws up the odd surprising revelation.

For example, league leaders Celtic top the charts in terms of goals scored but it is not a Hoops player who is at the summit of the scoring or assist charts.

And - despite Brendan Rodgers’ men extending last season’s incredible unbeaten run to 69 games before last month’s defeat to Hearts - the Parkhead men are not even in the top three when it comes to this term’s longest winning streaks.

And the mid-term report card will also back up Hibernian boss Neil Lennon’s complaints after he recently protested about the number of fouls dished out to star midfielder John McGinn and the rest of his squad.
