Manchester United's defensive troubles | What is the solution? | Stats Analysis

Manchester United's defensive troubles | What is the solution? | Stats Analysis

Manchester United remain at the summit of the Premier League, scoring goals at will and playing with an attacking verve that has seen Sir Alex Ferguson label the team better than the treble-winning side of ‘99. However, this season United have too often suffered defensive lapses, seeing the team concede 31 goals in 26 games. This begs the questions, who is Manchester United’s best centre-back and what is United’s best defensive partnership? To answer that it is necessary to compare …

What is Liverpool's best defensive duo? | Stats comparison

The current season is full of mixed feelings for Liverpool fans. The Reds play wonderful football and destroy their opponents one week and a few days later suffer a horrible defeat in a match they should have won. There are some positives as Brendan Rodger's team scores much more goals than Kenny' team last year and Luis Suarez seems to be contending for player of the year award whilst Steven Gerrard has regained the form that made him renowned as one …

He scored 30 league goals last season, a huge improvement on his previous best season of 18, …

Mata V Silva V Cazorla | Creative Spaniards Stats Analysis

Earlier in the season we tried to compare the three very similar Spaniards that grace the Premier League with their creativity and flair - Juan Mata, David Silva & Santi Cazorla. Unfortunately it was too early in the season for any comparison to be fair. The three of them have played over 1800 minutes now (equivalent of 20 games) so we should be able to see where these players are similar or compare their performances in the 2012/13 season. Mata …
When A King Loses His Crown: What has Happened To Manchester City?

When A King Loses His Crown: What has Happened To Manchester City?

Last season we saw what many would describe as the most theatrical finish to the English Premier League in some time. The “noisy neighbors” in Manchester, as Sir Alex Ferguson would mention, flip-flopped at the top of the league with Manchester United the entire season.  Heading into the final match-day, tied on points, Manchester City was atop the league on goal differential. Manchester United did its part by winning their final match against Sunderland 1-0. And with help from Queens …
