Inside The Numbers: Who's Handling Seattle's Defensive Workload?

New, comments

Who's winning possession for the Sounders and where they're winning it

USA TODAY Sports

As Sidereal started the discussion on Sounders defensive statistics, this analysis is going to look a little deeper into the numbers to see who is winning possessions for Seattle and how they're doing it (recoveries, interceptions, clearances, tackles won). The table below is sorted by possessions won per 90 minutes. Interestingly, though many have maligned him, Hurtado has been among Seattle's defensive standouts so far. Any other surpises?
