Salisu has played 2366 minutes this season and is behind only Martin Valjent (2430 minutes), teammate Kiko (2430 minutes) and Sevilla's Jesus Navas (2429 minutes).

However, the swashbuckling defender is ahead of Saul of Atletico Madrid, Raul Albiol of Villarreal, Pervis Estupiñán of Osasuna, Iago Aspas of Celta Vigo, Marc Cucurella of Getafe and José Campaña of Levante.

The list does not include goalkeepers.
