Premier League Weekly Review

I've combined my interest in football with my day job in analysis and put together a dashboard of the main stats from the 10 Premier League fixtures over the weekend.

This has been created by taking a load of images from the superb Stats Zone app and then linking them all in to a Powerpoint presentation.  The file has got the chalkboards of shots/tackles/interceptions and other main stats of each of the games along with a link to the Yahoo Goals site which has highlights for each game.

Some of the areas of interest include:

Leighton Baines completed 31 passes to Steven Pienaar, almost twice as many as any other combination in the Wigan-Everton game

Norwich's missed tackles around the penalty area

Liverpool only managing 2 attempts on target (out of 18)

Manchester United winning 28 tackles out of 31 attempts against Newcastle, the highest number over the weekend.
