Interesting to look at the expected goal stats now we're a third of the way through the season (c/o Infogol):
xGF: 1.62/game (1.60 in 2019/20)
xGA: 0.81/game (0.83 in 2019/20)
Watkins: 0.51/game (2019/20)...
The benefit of rest this season will be hugely disproportionate. Since Pontus’s enforced lay-off we’ve played four, conceded only one and collected ten points. Christian will be all the better for a break and we’ve got Janelt up to speed too 😊
So, Rico makes 19 successful passes from 25 attempts, puts in 2 accurate crosses and creates an assist from open play (14th/15).
Emiliano makes 20 from 26, puts in 1 accurate cross and creates an assist from a dead ball. (1st/15).
Emiliano really does divide opinion, doesn’t he? From some of the post match comments on here you’d think we’d witnessed a midfield maestro at work last night. Personally, I thought he was decidedly average in the first half and a bit better in...
