In the Champions League last season, Leeds' actual goals have never reached their xG. Since their return to the Premier League, they have acted ruthlessly in front of the goal.
Bielsa’s team scored 8 goals in 16 shots, but only 2.21xG, including Klick’s penalty in the 4-3 victory over Fulham (0.80xG).
Except for the penalty kick, Leeds United has not produced a shot with a probability of more than 10% in the first two Premier League games. Unfortunately, for Leeds United, this super-level performance may not be sustainable.
In the interview after the game, Bielsa himself expressed his concern about the team’s lack of opportunities. He found it difficult to explain the current offensive efficiency and admitted
Despite an easy victory over Southampton in the end, Tottenham didn't equalise by Sun Xingmin until halftime, and only one shot was taken (halftime xG: SOU 1.40-0.10 TOT).
尽管最终轻松击败南安普敦，托特纳姆热刺直到半场才与孙兴民平分秋色，只开了一枪（半场xG：SOU 1.40-0.10 TOT）。
Sun Xingyu broke through the opponent's defense in the second half, scoring the second, third and fourth goals (1.35 xG) in a typical breakthrough manner.
After assisting Sun Xingmin's four goals, Kane also scored his own goals, putting an end to the two's wonderful performance.
Edward Mendy, who is about to be signed by Chelsea, is likely to kick Kepa out of Chelsea's position. This is a decision based on his performance.
Two high-profile errors in the first two games will only accelerate this competition, but it is clear that they were looking for his replacement before this season.
Based on the number of shots he faced in the 2019/2020 season, our calculations indicate that an average goalkeeper will perform better than Kepa in 99% of the cases.
Lampard once again supported him after his recent mistakes, but it is hard to imagine that he can maintain his starting position after the arrival of new players.
The seasons of Manchester City and Manchester United were delayed for a week before they started, and the two Manchester clubs performed diametrically opposite when they returned to the game.
Despite the lack of some key players, Manchester City performed as well as before, scoring a fully deserved three-pointer against a rival and not falling behind Liverpool.
In contrast, Manchester United's 0-2 loss to Crystal Palace at home is outrageous. While they are struggling to score a chance at Old Trafford, their defensive performance is a mess.
Starting with Everton's 5-2 victory over West Brom on Saturday afternoon, the Premier League's weekly goal record was broken this weekend. A total of 44 goals in 10 games were scored, one more goal than the previous record held for 9 years.
Efficient shooting played a huge role in this record weekend.
Our calculations show that in the 32.44 xG data, there is only a 3% chance that 44 balls or more will be generated, which also shows that it is almost impossible for such a weekend to happen again.
