Son positionnement sur la fin de l'ère Potter comme piston gauche avait été une réussite. Mais revoir néanmoins Leandro Trossard dans un rôle plus axial est une satisfaction personnelle et un choix déjà largement payant pour Roberto De Zerbi pour ses débuts en @premierleague
L'empreinte Graham Potter est naturellement encore très présente, illustrée par la qualité des décisions et combinaisons sous pression et par l'interprétation phénoménale des espaces de la part de cette équipe. L'italien reprend des bases très solides dans le jeu avec ballon
Le repositionnement de Trossard, la provocation du pressing de la première ligne adverse et le retour à une manière de défendre plus classique, en zone, sont cependant à mettre largement au crédit de De Zerbi

The #PremierLeague is back!

How has your team’s GK performed?

#Pickford’s class shot stopping & distribution puts him top 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

#Pope, #Henderson, & #Leno have had great starts at their new clubs🧤

Big mistakes have cost #DeGea & #Ramsdale 😱

#Ward has struggled in all areas 😞
The GK xG model shown above looks at every shot faced, pass received, cross faced & through ball faced & calculates the probability of a goal occurring for & against the GK’s team before the event & after the event occurs!

Thus it measures & evaluates every action a GKs makes!
This allows all GKs to be given a single number measured in goals called

“Total Value in Goals”

Which describes the GK’s value to their side vs having a league average GK & takes into account everything they do meaning GKs of vastly different styles can be fairly compared!

Will #Potter make #Kepa his number 1?

Most accept #Mendy is the superior shot stopper & shot preventer so the argument is about distributing

We @goalkeeper_com find in recent games #Mendy has been the better passer while both GKs have been equally error prone on the ball!

#CFC ImageImageImageImage
When receiving the ball under pressure, both #Chelsea GKs have been below the #PremierLeague standard!

#Mendy has cost #CFC 0.52 xG more than the avg #PL GK would be expected to if they received the ball in the same situations (this is heavily influenced by his mistake vs Leeds) Image
Similarly #Kepa has cost #CFC 0.59 xG more than the avg #PL GK would be expected to if they received the ball in the same situations as he did in his last 15 #PremierLeague games, #Kepa’s numbers here are heavily influenced by his mistake vs #Liverpool which #Mane capitalised on! Image

In this thread I'll be covering THE BEST fixtures to target for GW5 so you can maximize the number of points you score. So strap in and let's start!😁
🔴Brentford🔴 - ⚪️Leeds⚪️

This game is definitely going to be an eye-catcher! Both of these teams are really exciting to watch.
🔴Toney[7.1m] might explode in this one. Brentford are ranked 5th for goals scored this season [10] and 6th for xG[7.81].

Toney is definitely hungry for returns after his 2 recent blanks in the last 2 gameweeks. He is averaging 1.80 SH per 90, and 0.73 xGI per 90. Leeds are well known for their bad defense record and Toney could exploit that. Leeds have conceded 46 SHOTS FROM OPEN PLAY[ 5G conceded]

Can Alexander be Great? 🇸🇪

After his recently impressive debut vs LIV, Rey analyses whether the Swede is an asset #FPL managers should consider.

Author: @rey_qur
Statistics: @FantasyFootyFix

Isak has been a player I have been looking at since December of last year. He was strongly linked with Arsenal and I was very keen on the gunners to sign him.

For the #FM22 enthusiasts, he’s incredible in the game 🤷🏻‍♂️
Once NEW signed the striker, I was very keen to analyse his movements during the game and if he is fit for the intensity and physicality of the #PremierLeague

A GK’s handling ability is vital & often under analysed!

Here #DeGea showed how handling can determine a game’s outcome when he parried a 49mph central shot into danger & the rebound was scored!

xRebound xG = 0.09
Actual Rebound xG = 0.47

xG added due to poor handling = 0.38
My handling model uses historic shot data to gauge how often certain shots should be expected to be caught, parried away from danger, & parried into danger in combination with a none shot xG model which assesses how likely rebounds are to be scored based on the parry location
My model found that due the shot’s lower than avg velocity & central trajectory an avg PL GK would expect to parry the ball into an area which resulted in a goal from the rebound only 9% of the time whereas #DeGea pushed it into an area which results in a goal 47% of the time!

I created a betting system for football betting using expected goals (xG) data.

And I am also sharing it for free.

Here is a simple 5-step approach to predicting the upcoming Premier League matches.

[🧵 thread]
Step 1.

👉Create a Match Rating

You can create a match rating by subtracting the away team’s xG difference (xG - xG allowed) from the home team’s xGD over the course of their 3 most recent games.

Let's illustrate the idea using the 2021/22 Brentford-Leicester City game 👇
Step 1. [Example]

- Brentford entered the game with 4.7 xG scored and 4.1 xG allowed, or an xGD of 0.6 (4.7 - 4.1)
- Leicester entered the game with 7.4 xG scored and 3.4xG allowed, or an xGD of 4 (7.4 - 3.4)

👉 The #BRELEI match rating was therefore -3.4 (0.6 - 4).

The premium template seems strong with >55% ownership for both Salah and Haaland. In this thread, let’s look at the prospects of Son, De Bruyne, Sterling and Bruno and see if they're worth breaking the template for.

#FPL #FPLCommunity
Also, we will look into Salah’s alleged dip in form post-AFCON. All stats were taken from @FFScout Members Area unless otherwise mentioned.

Abbreviations used:
NPxG – Non-penalty Expected Goals
xA – Expected Assists
NPG – Non-penalty Goals
A – Assists

How do the top six #PremierLeague midfields stack up in terms of creation?

Jordan Henderson as Liverpool’s most dangerous creator from the midfield was surprising to say the least. #LFC
Here it is per 90 minutes, showing top performers for each side. Henderson drops down, Elliott shoots out, KDB is a cut above the rest.
Now if you add Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson to the mix, you see where Liverpool's two main sources of creativity lie, and why the midfield is more industrious rather than creative.

El Forest coronó el milagro, venció a Huddersfield en Wembley empujado por una marea roja y jugará la próxima temporada en la Premier League después de 23 años de ausencia. Salud! #NFFC #COYR #PremierLeague
El escenario llamaba a las viejas páginas de la historia: Forest en Wembley. Como a principios de los 90 y especialmente a fines de los 70, cuando ver al equipo de Clough jugar finales era una costumbre. Era el turno para una nueva generación de testigos de hazañas.
Así lo entendieron los 40000 hinchas que agotaron las entradas y coparon Wembley. Desde las primeras estrofas del Mull of Kintyre, hicieron sentir su presencia y la incontenible ilusión que los había llevado desde Nottingham (y todas partes del continente) hasta allí.

My 1st @goalkeeper_com piece:

How many goals were the big 6 GKs worth vs the avg #PL GK?

#Alisson was worth ~19 goals! What more does a GK have to do to get #POTY!

#DeGea was the best shot stopper but his weak shot prevention & distribution meant he was only worth ~3 goals!
#Ederson was the best distributer & his shot preventing was class but his below average shot stopping means his value is far below #Alisson’s!

#Ramsdale’s performances at the end of the season were average but his incredible start means he ended the year with great numbers!
#Mendy was in 2nd place for goal value throughout the year but a poor final few games caused him to drop off, still he was worth ~6 goals to #Chelsea!

#Lloris has gone under the radar this year & while his distribution was pretty weak his shot stopping & sweeping was class!

#LeicesterRoma/#PostMatch 1/5
La qualificazione passa sul binario opposto
Il gol dell'#ASRoma rivela uno dei limiti principali del #Leicester: difendere sul lato debole.
Per scelta gli inglesi tentano di rimpicciolire il campo concentrandosi sul lato forte (dov'è il pallone).
#LeicesterRoma/#PostMatch 2/5
Quando però le pressioni saltano e il campo ribaltato rapidamente, rischia inferiorità numeriche o mostra difficoltà in riposizionamenti e scelte difensive. Lo 0-1 di ieri: fallo laterale con i 10 giocatori di movimento tutti sul lato forte.
#LeicesterRoma/#PostMatch 3/5
#Zalewski è in massima ampiezza (tanto da uscire dall'inquadratura) per stressare quella situazione.
Sul cambio di campo, il Leicester è rapido a scivolare (4v2 nei pressi del pallone) ma passivo nelle scelte difensive concedendo facile profondità.

Data la pubblicità meritata che il BDP creato da @Soccerment_Blog sta avendo nelle discussioni di questi giorni, vorrei integrare questo con un altro interessante indice, ossia la Challenge Intensity di @Wyscout [THREAD]
Il BDP misura quanto il pressing di una squadra influenza il possesso avversario mediante il calcolo del discostamento della percentuale di passaggi riusciti dell'avversario rispetto alla propria media.
Questo ci permette di capire, per esempio, quanto sia difficile giocare contro avversari come Torino e Verona in serie A o il Colonia in Bundesliga o il Leeds di Bielsa in Premier League.…

Economic snapshot. A new study by EY highlights how the #PremierLeague and its clubs have continued to generate widespread benefits for the economy, society and the entire football pyramid, despite the significant challenges presented by COVID-19 #SportBusiness
@fcbusiness @utdarena @DailyAFC @SportByFort @MUnitedFR @iemadAFC @OsmanZtheGooner @AFC4AR @PrestwichBlue @InsiderCity_Ar The analysis reveals that Premier League football contributed £7.6bn to the UK economy during the 2019/20 season, which was suspended for more than three months due to the pandemic. Clubs' economic activity has grown by 840 per cent since the 1998/99 season.
@fcbusiness @utdarena @DailyAFC @SportByFort @MUnitedFR @iemadAFC @OsmanZtheGooner @AFC4AR @PrestwichBlue @InsiderCity_Ar The League and its clubs generated a total tax contribution of £3.6bn to the UK Exchequer in 2019/20, £1.4bn of which was accounted for by Premier League players. The total tax contribution underpinned by clubs has increased by £3.1bn since 1998/99.

Today I’ll breakdown #DeGea’s performance in the #PremierLeague using my bespoke GK models!

The headline is for the first time in 3 seasons #DeGea’s shot stopping skills are outweighing his weak shot prevention skills & thus far he has saved #MUFC ~5 additional goals! Image
Shot Stopping:

#DeGea’s shot stopping has been world class, my model predicts he has saved #MUFC ~5 goals more than an average #PL shot stopper would’ve thus far!

The goalmouth map highlights just how hard #DeGea has been to beat, if you don’t hit the corners you won’t score! Image
Shot Stopping:

His Best 3 Saves (Lowest ExSave Saves Made) are below 😮:

1. 24% Save Probability vs Jesus

2. 34% Save Probability vs Almiron

3. 42% Save Probability vs Pukki

They highlight #DeGea big strength, his reflexes & ability to cover huge amounts of the goal area. ImageImageImage

How good has #Ramsdale been for #Arsenal so far?

I’ve seen him described as both “the signing of the season” & “a camera save merchant” but what does the data say?

In this thread I will breakdown his performance in all areas of goalkeeping using my bespoke models

Shot Stopping:

#Ramsdale’s shot stopping has been excellent, my model predicts he has saved #AFC ~3 goals more than an average #PL shot stopper would’ve thus far!

He’s basically only conceded vs close range shots in the corners & has pulled a few shots out of the top corners!
Shot Stopping:

His Best 3 Saves (Lowest ExSave Saves Made) are below 😮:

1. 31% Save Probability vs Bowen

2. 52% Save Probability vs Maddison

3. 57% Save Probability vs Moura

They highlight #Ramsdale big strength, his agility & ability to cover huge amounts of the goal area.

/Thread/ #PremierLeague clubs have smashed their own record for combined shirt #sponsorship deals, with the 20 clubs generating £358.75m for the 21-22 season, an increase of £14.25m from last yr. Sleeve sponsors are paying a further £83.75m to the 19 clubs combined (without EFC)
@fcbusiness @utdarena @ChrisWheatley_ @martynziegler @mjshrimper @iemadAFC @DailyAFC @MUnitedFR @TheCitizensBR @PrestwichBlue This growth underlines the league's commercial strength also during the COVID-19 epidemic. The combined total in 2010-11, when @sportingintel first performed this exercise, was £100.45m. Main shirt and sleeve sponsorship deals have become a stable source of income for clubs
@fcbusiness @utdarena @ChrisWheatley_ @martynziegler @mjshrimper @iemadAFC @DailyAFC @MUnitedFR @TheCitizensBR @PrestwichBlue @sportingintel and have become an integral part of their marketing strategies.

Existential thread re how much do you love your kids & if you really, really want them over for Xmas holidays?

All thanks to @DGCAIndia @MoCA_GoI & @JM_Scindia @PMOIndia allowing v few flights, so fares > ₹1.5 lac, any sector, #London to #India
In @ShashiTharoor's cattle class
Thought I'd begin with our national carrier @airindiain after a great experience last time

Chose #AMD @ahmairport, one of our few international airports with A

Fare is £1983 (is it a promotion with the movie 83?)
Hey, it's #Gujarat, all business folks, ex Modi town. My bad!
Then went for the pukka #British @British_Airways

Picked #Hyderabad simply because it isn't #Bangalore, trying smaller airports, maybe better given the Covid restrictions

The fare is a whopping £2231. Ok, back to the drawing board !

Provando a maneggiare i dati provenienti da @fbref provo a lanciarmi in qualche analisi statistica sulle squadre dei 5 principali campionati europei.
Oggi parto con la difesa dell'area di rigore e la concessione della rifinitura agli avversari.

I valori considerati sono:
- Passaggi in area concessi a partita
- Percentuale di ingressi in area concessi tramite cross
- I colori indicano gli expected assist per ciascun key-pass subito
- La grandezza dell'indicatore è data dalla differenza tra assist e xA subiti.
Il grafico crea 4 quadranti che suddivide le squadre tra quelle che concedono più o meno ingressi in area (non importa se per dominio territoriale o se per compattezza difensiva) e se più tramite cross (soluzione indicativamente migliore sulla carta) o in altri modi.
