Premier League 2017/18 Shot Efficiency – Week 12


Time to return to the Premier League now as I continue my analysis across Europe while looking at just how efficient football clubs are in front of goal. If you are not aware of my project then I will be looking into the data of the top five leagues .

Those being the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Serie A. After kickstarting proceedings last week it is now time to crunch the numbers once again as we look at who is the most ruthless when it comes to shots vs goals.

Who creates too much and quite simply who does not create enough, but at the same time it is not necessarily about what you create it is what you do with it. Are there any teams that are perhaps guilty of spurning multiple chances and just what correlation does efficiency have to their league placing

Not only that but there an abundance of charts, to back up the data, it seems that there is new chart every week and this week is no different as I also compare how clubs performed the last time I scoured through all the statistics on offer.

To follow there is going to be a similar raft of data for all the four other leagues mentioned so keep an eye out for those, then again if you are not prepared to wait for me to post them you can go straight to my website Real Football Data and view them directly.

Thanks to whoscored for the data.

If you have any ideas for the kind of analysis you would like to see then please let me know, I’m always open to ideas and ultimately I want to make something that people will take the time to read and digest and in some way hopefully educate also.

I hope this is of interest to you and if you have any football data work available then please contact me at realfootballmanwordpress@gmail.com as I am always looking to undertake additional projects to the ones I already have. Thanks, Dan.
