A superb piece of analysis has emerged on social media this week, displaying the Premier League desk based mostly on kind in 2022.
Over the 20+ video games performed this calendar 12 months, the desk reveals Newcastle United in fourth on 45 factors, leaving us behind solely Liverpool, Man Metropolis and Spurs – and the latter (42 factors) have performed two video games extra.
The next stats additionally grew to become obvious when trying on the 2022 standings:
- Solely Liverpool (13) and Man Metropolis (14) have conceded lower than targets Newcastle (20)
- Solely Liverpool (16), Man Metropolis (15) and Tottenham (14) have received extra video games than Newcastle (13)
- Solely Liverpool (2.52) and Man Metropolis (2.45) have a greater factors per recreation than Newcastle (2.00)
As well as, this factors per recreation (PPG) of two.00 means we’d finish the season on a staggering 76 factors ought to we preserve this type. It’s unrealistic that we hold this up, however this whole would have you ever ending third within the Premier League in SEVEN of the final eight seasons, highlighting what a powerful PPG price we’ve maintained over the calendar 12 months.
It’s additionally telling what we’ve mustered this many factors regardless of scoring solely 27 targets in our 21 video games. To me, this highlights how vital it’s that we signal two high quality attackers over the ultimate few weeks of the window, because it feels unsustainable to maintain this type going until we start to attain extra targets.
