    It’s hard to say whether Huddersfield‘s season is more ruined than this graphic, but their eye-wateringly bad shot conversion is far from ideal either way. They’ve needed over twice as many attempts as the average team to score each league goal this season. Chelsea‘s desire to recruit another striker in January is understandable given their relatively average finishing this season despite having created all those chances – a clinical Arsenal side have scored more goals despite carving out far fewer opportunities.

    Despite having sprung a few leaks lately, Liverpool‘s defence still looks excellent overall. If the last chart wasn’t bad enough for Huddersfield, they’re also leakier at the back than anyone except Fulham despite allowing their opponents a relatively respectable number of opportunities (fewer than Man Utd for example).

    In raw shot terms it’s the same story as before Christmas: Emirates Marketing Project tend to dominate matches and currently take over 10 more shots than their opponents on average. Liverpool and Chelseaare the only sides anywhere near as dominant, while Burnley stand out as the team who spend the most time on the back foot.

    It would be interesting to see what our xGD line has been doing since December. The fact it was hovering around about 0.5 goals south of what we'd got used to would seem to be supportive of the perception that we've become weaker defensively while at the same time struggled to create as much as in previous seasons. I guess the moral is we should consider ourselves lucky still to be where we are.

    Honestly think you put any of the top 6 in Wembley for a season and a half and see how they perform, would put a reasonable punt on none of them matching our numbers ..

    Lefties?

    4 Of the 42 players in the Premier League this season with seven or more goals, four are left-footed — less than 10 per cent

    16 Of the 43 players with five or more assists in the Premier League this season, 16 are left-footed — just over 37 per cent

    Not sure what to make of this. The total by the top two this year is exceptional, but the record has been broken in each of the last three seasons.
