Spurs 1st, Palace 2nd, Swansea 20th

Having looked at shooting in a couple of articles and seen we top the league for shots on target, although we don't quite have the most shots, it's the turn of set-pieces to take the limelight.

The table below shows goals scored from set-pieces vs goals against from set-pieces to give a plus or minus figure.

  • Tottenham Hotspur (4th) 9 vs 2 = 7
  • Crystal Palace (7th)       7 vs 0 = 7
  • Southampton (13th)       8 vs 4 = 4
  • Sunderland (19th)          8 vs 5 = 3
  • WBA (12th)                   7 vs 4 = 3
  • West Ham United (6th)   6 vs 3 = 3
  • Chelsea (14th)               8 vs 6 = 2
  • Arsenal (1st)                  7 vs 5 = 2
  • Manchester City (3rd)     9 vs 8 = 1
  • Manchester United (5th)  4 vs 4 = 0
  • League Average             5.55 vs 5.55 = 0
  • Aston Villa (20th)            5 vs 6 = -1
  • Norwich City (15th)         6 vs 7 = -1
  • Stoke City (10th)            3 vs 5 = -2
  • Watford (9th)                 3 vs 5 = -2
  • Bournemouth (16th)        5 vs 9 = -4
  • Leicester City (2nd)        3 vs 7 = -4
  • Liverpool (8th)                3 vs 7 = -4
  • Everton (11th)                3 vs 7 = -4
  • Newcastle United (18th)  4 vs 8 = -4
  • Swansea City (17th)       2 vs 9 = -7

To see how efficient each team is next we will look at the average number of shots from set-pieces per 90 minutes vs the average shots conceded per 90 minutes. This will give us an idea of who is conceding corners and fouls around the box. You'll see the table differs and that we only have the 6th highest for opportunities while being 1st for goals scored. The figures are rounded for ease.



    Manchester City (3rd)    4.7 vs 2.5 = 2.3 (more than 2.25)

    Liverpool (8th)               3.8 vs 2.5 = 1.3
    Arsenal (1st)                 3.1 vs 2.3 = 0.9 (more than 0.85)
    Southampton (13th)       3.8 vs 3.2 = 0.6
    Chelsea (14th)               3.1 vs 2.6 = 0.5
    Tottenham Hotspur (4th) 3.3 vs 2.9 = 0.4
    WBA (12th)                   2.9 vs 3.2 = 0.4 (more than 0.35)
    Sunderland (19th)          3.1 vs 2.9 = 0.2
    Manchester United (5th) 3.1 vs 2.9 = 0.2
    Everton (11th)               2.9 vs 3.1 = 0.2
    League Average            3.1 vs 3.1 = 0
    Norwich City (15th)        2.9 vs 2.9 = 0
    Crystal Palace (7th)       3.6 vs 3.7 = 0 (less than -0.5)
    Bournemouth (16th)       3.1 vs 3.2 = -0.1
    Watford (9th)                2.5 vs 2.8 = -0.3
    Aston Villa (20th)           3.1 vs 3.6 = -0.4 (less then -0.45)
    West Ham United (6th)   3.8 vs 4.3 = -0.5
    Swansea City (17th)      2.7 vs 3.3 = -0.6
    Leicester City (2nd)       3.1 vs 3.8 = -0.7
    Stoke City (10th)           2.4 vs 3.7 = -1.4
