Top five: Offside players in the Premier League (5)

2. Nikica Jelavic - 1.48 offsides per game

Seven goals in 30 appearances for Everton this season, Jelavic hasn't been quite as prolific as he was when David Moyes first brought him to Goodison Park.

The Croatian striker is always a threat in the final third, though, and he has been utilised more as an impact substitute in 2012/13, which could be a reason for his high number of offsides, as it takes time to acclimatise to the pace of a game when coming off the bench.
