Dominant defending from set-pieces

Hearts are topping the charts when it comes to defending set-plays this season.

Steven Naismith's side have conceded just four goals from set-pieces so far this term, the lowest of any side in the Scottish top flight.

Rangers are the closest to them, having conceded eight set-piece goals while all other teams are in double figures.

Hearts haven't conceded a single goal from a corner this season, the only team in the Scottish Premiership to have achieved this with all others having let in at least four.

Their defending from crosses is also one of the best in the league, with only St Mirren letting in fewer goals from crosses.
