Research by CIES Football Observatory shows the turnover strategies followed in domestic league matches of the 2016/17 season by clubs from 27 top division European leagues.

Chelsea holds the record for the highest percentage of minutes played by the 11 most employed footballers at 85.5%. In total, Chelsea fielded 24 players on their way to the title.

Scottish Premiership runners up Aberdeen fielded just 22 players with the first 11 playing 84.2% of all the minutes played during the season.
