Goal Minutes Stats for Premier League Teams (part 2)

Once more, stats relating to goals. Or lack of them.
They all relate to my TOP TEN PREMIERSHIP teams
Again all info relates to the last FOUR seasons in th PREMIERSHIP.

The first set are teams which score first and then go on to lose the match

               05/06       06/07       07/08       08/09
ARSENAL          1           0           2           1       
LIVERPOOL        0           1           0           1
MAN. UTD.        0           1           1           2
MAN. CITY.       2           0           1           4
CHELSEA          0           2           0           1
‘SPURS           0           3           4           2
FULHAM           4           2           5           2
A. VILLA         2           1           3           0
EVERTON          1           2           2           2
WEST HAM         3           2           1           2

Over the four seasons, these TEN sides scored first on SIXTY-THREE occasions BUT STILL LOST.
That’s just 4.14% "go wrong". If we restrict ourselves to the accepted "TOP FOUR" (ARSENAL. LIVERPOOL, MAN.U. AND CHELSEA) the figure drops down to .92%.

The four season totals for the "top four"  is only 13.
This would indicate to me that once you steer clear of any tight games, you can expect any of these sides  to, at least, draw once they have taken the lead.   /

This set of figures is about how often the sides can turn around a goal deficit.
The manager always calls it "character" when his team come from behind to win.
These teams have conceded the first goal then go on to win.

               05/06       06/07       07/08       08/09
ARSENAL          1           5           5           4
LIVERPOOL        0           1           3           6
MAN.UTD.         4           5           2           3
MAN.CITY         2           0           2           0
CHELSEA          4           1           4           2
‘SPURS           4           3           0           2
FULHAM           2           1           3           1
A. VILLA         0           3           3           4
EVERTON          0           1           0           2
WEST HAM         5           2           4           2

These figures show that some teams never give-in.
The surprise packet here is West Ham.  We need to keep an eye on them this season.
The disappointment here is Everton.  I find their lack of fight-back uncharacteristic of the club.   

This time we look at teams which score first can only manage to draw.

               05/06       06/07       07/08       08/09
ARSENAL          1           2           3           4
LIVERPOOL        2           0           6           2
MAN. UTD.        3           2           3           2
MAN. CITY.       0           1           3           3
CHELSEA          2           2           5           1
‘SPURS           5           2           8           1
FULHAM           3           6           5           1
A. VILLA         3           6           2           3
EVERTON          4           6           3           3
WEST HAM         1           1           7           3

This small table can clearly be divided into two. The lower half appearing to be teams that tend to rest on their laurels once they have an advantage. Then again in season 07/08 both Liverpool and Chelsea seemed to have adopted a benevolent attitude.
In general however, the top teams to appear to be the most reliable once they get the bit between their teeth.

Teams that fight back after conceding that important first goal and win themselves a point.

               05/06       06/07       07/08       08/09
ARSENAL          1           7           6           3
LIVERPOOL        3           3           2           4
MAN. UTD         1           2           2           1 
MAN. CITY.       1           1           3           2
CHELSEA          1           6           2           3                  
‘SPURS           3           5           4           3
FULHAM           0           5           4           2              
A. VILLA         4           6           9           3
EVERTON          2           5           2           4 
WEST.HAM         3           3           2           2

Looking at these figures it’s hard to decide who to admire the most. The team that stops the opposition scoring first, or the team that fights back.

Now a look at how teams fare when they give away that important first goal and fail to fight back.
These figures show how many go on to lose all three points.

               05/06       06/07       07/08       08/09
ARSENAL         10           8           1           5
LIVERPOOL        6           9           4           1
MAN. UTD.        5           4           4           2
MAN. CITY.      19          18          12          14
CHELSEA          5           1           3           4
‘SPURS           9           9          10          13
FULHAM          14          13          13          11
A. VILLA      
  14           9           7          10
EVERTON         15           8           9           7
WEST HAM        12          19          14          13

Once more it would appear that the generally accepted BIG FOUR are the most reliable in this category, too.

Finally a set of figures which shows which teams really mean business.
These sides take the lead and then make sure they get the three points.

               05/06       06/07       07/08       08/09
ARSENAL         19          14          19          16
LIVERPOOL       25          19          18          19
MAN. UTD.       21          23          23          25
MAN. CITY.      11          11          13          15
CHELSEA         25          23          21          23
‘SPURS          14          14          11          12
FULHAM          12           7           5          13
A. VILLA        10           8          13          13
EVERTON         14          14          19          15
WEST HAM        11          10           9          12 

This last table shows that the most consistent teams really are those we know as the BIG FOUR.
However this season, the emergence of both Man City and ‘Spurs, could mean that there will be a REAL CHALLENGE for those CHAMPIONS LEAGUE places.

These figures will be of most use to those of you who like to TRADE whilst the match is in progress, or are enamoured of SPREAD BETTING.
Nevertheless they do make interesting reading for anyone who has an interest in trying to find those elusive winners.
