I'm interested to know the average distance a professional footballer covers in a Premier League game.

This will change dramatically based on the tactic employed by the manager, and the position a player plays in but typically midfielders run the most and cover about 10-11 km over 90 mins. Beyond 11 km is not unheard of but is considered to be a "hard-worker", especially 12+ km. Those players would typically be central midfielders with defensive focus, alternatively defensive midfielders.
