There are some surprises in the info-graphic below. You’d expect the relegation threatened teams to be the most error prone in the Premier League and whilst this is true in the case of Newcastle United (just about stayed up) and Wigan Athletic (relegated) there is a surprise appearance from Champions League qualifiers Arsenal.
Arsenal have conceded 39 shots from errors – the same amount as Newcastle with Wigan in third spot. Arsenal also committed the second highest amount of errors that led to goals in the league – 14, three less than Wigan.
Liverpool are also high on the list when it comes to errors leading to shots/goals as they are in fourth place.
We will be providing full analysis on the site tomorrow with many more graphs and stats! The info-graphic above is a little teaser for what’s to come including percentages of shots that led to goals – which teams are luckier than others when it comes to errors!
