Hibs go into the fourth weekend of the season as the leading shot-takers in the Ladbrokes Premiership, one ahead of reigning champions Celtic.

Neil Lennon’s men have attempted a whopping 50 attempts on goal over their first three fixtures, with strike partners Simon Murray and Anthony Stokes tied for first and second in the individual player rankings with 11 each.

Incidentally, the Easter Road men have also been caught offside more than any other in the top flight. They’ve been flagged 14 times, twice as many as second-ranked Rangers, with Murray whistled seven times for the infringement.

Neighbours Hearts are 11th in shots on goal, though that can be attributed to the tough start to the campaign, where they’ve had to visit Celtic Park and Ibrox either side of a trip to Kilmarnock. This is reflected in the 34.1 per cent possession the Jambos have averaged thus far, the lowest in the top flight.
