FPL Gameweek 25: analysis of the key underlying stats

Our next article in the Members Articles Unlocked series is our Big Numbers piece.

In this regular feature, we take a look at the vast array of data available in our Members’ Area and present the eye-catching stats that may be of interest.

We’ve run down the stand-out figures in every position, as well as looking at the strengths and weaknesses of various teams to assess which Fantasy Premier League assets could shine in Gameweek 25 and beyond.

Usually, only subscribers can read this article but we’re making this particular piece free to read for one week only.

GOALKEEPERS

85.7% of the shots that Alisson (£6.1m) has faced this season have been saved by the Liverpool custodian. No other Premier League goalkeeper can match that statistic this season, and Adrian‘s (£4.1m) save percentage, by way of example, is down at 66.7%. Alisson’s save percentage of 79.2% was also the best in the division in 2018/19 among first-choice shot-stoppers.

167.9 minutes per expected goal prevented (xGP) by Hugo Lloris (£5.3m) this season, the best rate of xGP of all first-choice Premier League goalkeepers in 2019/20. Lloris returned from injury in Gameweek 24 and next faces Manchester City on Sunday. The Frenchman’s xGP (expected goals conceded minus actual goals conceded) is +3.80 this season, with Paulo Gazzaniga‘s (£4.5m) down at -2.90.

1 clean sheet kept by Rui Patricio (£5.1m) in the last 16 Gameweeks. No side has kept as few shut-outs as Wolverhampton Wanderers over the same period. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side face Manchester United this weekend and Leicester City in Gameweek 26.

DEFENDERS

5 headed attempts from set plays by James Tomkins (£5.0m) over the last six Gameweeks, which only Yerry Mina (£5.3m) can beat. Crystal Palace avoid any of the ‘big six’ over the next half-dozen Gameweeks, so Tomkins could potentially prosper at both ends of the pitch.

10 key passes, 12 successful crosses and three big chances created by Lucas Digne (£5.8m) in his last four matches. No other FPL defender can beat either of those totals when filtered by the same criteria.

29 successful take-ons registered by Serge Aurier (£5.0m) since Jose Mourinho took charge of Spurs in Gameweek 13 – no FPL defender has completed more in that time. Aurier’s advanced role in the Spurs set-up has led to four assists in his last 12 starts, although the Lilywhites have banked only two clean sheets over the same span of games.

1.76 expected assists (xA) recorded by Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.3m) over the last six Gameweeks, a figure that only Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m) can beat among FPL defenders over that period. Wan-Bissaka has created seven opportunities in that time (two of them big chances), having supplied only eight key passes (zero big chances) in the preceding 18 Gameweeks.

84 passes received in the final third by Reece James (£5.0m)) in his last four matches. Two Manchester City left-backs – Benjamin Mendy (£5.5m) and Angelino (£4.7m) – are the only FPL defenders who can beat that total when sorted by the same criteria.

MIDFIELDERS

37 chances created by Emiliano Buendia (£6.0m) over the last nine Gameweeks, more than any other player over the same period. Norwich’s dead-ball specialist, who is expected back from injury this weekend, will face Newcastle in Gameweek 25. Steve Bruce’s side have allowed more chances from set plays than any other Premier League side this season.

45 attempts on goal, 38 shots in the box, 22 efforts on target, 13 big chances and ten goals recorded by Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) at Anfield this season. No FPL midfielder can surpass any of those totals in home fixtures. Liverpool face Southampton on Merseyside this weekend.

12 FPL attacking returns from Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) in away matches this season, more than any other Premier League player. Over half (nine) of De Bruyne’s assists have come on the road, with ten of his 21 big chances created also coming away from the Etihad. Manchester City are in action at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Sunday.

6 big chances created by Adama Traore (£5.8m) in the last six Gameweeks, which no FPL asset can better. The Wolves winger had only carved out three clear-cut opportunities in the preceding 18 Gameweeks.

12 chances created by Aaron Mooy (£5.0m) in his last four matches. Only two midfielders have supplied more key passes when they are filtered by the same criteria.

FORWARDS

12 big chances either presented to or created by Troy Deeney (£6.3m) since Nigel Pearson took charge of Watford in Gameweek 17. Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) is the only other FPL forward with higher big chance involvement during that time.

10 headed goal attempts from Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.1m) since Carlo Ancelotti took charge of Everton in Gameweek 19. The Toffees are this weekend up against Watford, who have allowed more headed chances in the Nigel Pearson era than all bar two Premier League sides.

78.3 minutes per chance presented to Jamie Vardy (£9.9m) in his last four starts. Vardy’s rate of goal attempts was one every 33.8 minutes prior to Gameweek 19.

9 goals scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m) in away league matches this season, which no other FPL asset can better. Arsenal are on the road this Sunday, facing Burnley in Lancashire.

5.42 expected goal involvements (xGI) from Raul Jimenez (£7.6m) over the last six Gameweeks. No FPL forward has a better xGI over the same timeframe, despite the fact that Wolves have faced Liverpool twice and Manchester City over this six-match period.

-3.14 expected goal (xG) delta recorded by Neal Maupay (£5.9m) in 2019/20. Only two FPL forwards are underachieving more than Maupay based on xG delta, which is calculated by subtracting a player’s xG from actual goals scored.

TEAMS

29 opportunities conceded by Watford from their right flank over the last six Gameweeks, which is more than any other team from that side of the pitch. That statistic may be of interest to owners of Lucas Digne (£5.8m), with Everton the visitors to Vicarage Road on Saturday.

6 goals scored by Norwich City in away matches this season, the worst total of any Premier League club on the road. Three of the Canaries’ next five fixtures are away from Carrow Road, with their two home matches in between against Liverpool and Leicester City, who have ten away clean sheets between them. Only one of Todd Cantwell‘s (£5.0m) eight attacking returns has come in an away match.

27 chances conceded by Burnley from their left flank over the last six Gameweeks, which is more than any other team from that zone of the pitch. Nicolas Pepe (£9.1m) and Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) could potentially take advantage of that vulnerability when Arsenal – who have won their last 11 meetings with the Clarets – visit Turf Moor this weekend.

9 penalties awarded by Anthony Taylor this season, which is four more than any other Premier League referee. Two-thirds of those spot-kick awards have been for the home side. Taylor takes charge of Bournemouth v Aston Villa this weekend.

95 crosses attempted from Crystal Palace‘s right wing over the last six Gameweeks – no side has allowed more deliveries from that flank over the same period. Only two clubs have allowed more chances to be created from that side of the pitch, meanwhile. Enda Stevens (£5.1m) could potentially profit from that weakness when Sheffield United visit Selhurst Park this weekend.

0 defensive errors made by Watford since Nigel Pearson’s arrival. The Hornets are the only Premier League club not have to have made (in Opta’s eyes) a slip-up over the last eight Gameweeks. Aston Villa have erred the most (eight) in that time, while Newcastle United have made six mistakes that led to goals.

5.97 expected goals conceded (xGC) by Chelsea over the last eight Gameweeks, which is the best xGC of any Premier League side over the same period. The Blues take on Leicester City this weekend.

12 goals scored by Newcastle United from set-piece situations this season, which represents half their total output. A dozen of the Magpies’ 24 goals have been scored by their defenders, too.

    Evening guys,

    TC Mane really wasn't an enjoyable experience, however trying not to dwell (although hard), any help on the below would be amazing

  3. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Did Vardy to Jiménez early
    Would you do Firmino to Auba this week for a hit or stay put and reassess next week? Likely to captain Salah anyway
    I feel wildcard is imminent with 4/5 changes but trying to hold out as long as possible once fixtures are known

    1. FPL_DON
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      stay put

      I think Vardy > Jimi was done one week too early. Think Vardy could outscore this week but Jimi the one to get next week.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Possibly. Did it with injury cloud and thought I would use wc later..which may change
        Leicester not exactly in top form

        1. Jet5605
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yeah Leicester's form is a concern. If Vardy blanks this weekend then he's gone for Jimi.

      Mane to any differential with good fixtures that you fancy. Rest of the team is reasonably template so you should be fine. Bank second transfer, reassess next week. Captain salah!

  5. grooveymatt65

  6. Jet5605

    2 months, 6 days ago

    Would you sell Mane if you had my squad? Or should I hold in the hope he's back for Norwich? Grealish is probably the one but not overly convinced with his fixtures. 2 FT and 0.2 ITB.

    Thinking maybe just Lund or Williams > Lascelles or Palace defender to use one FT then Vardy & Pickford > Jimi & Henderson next week?

    Pickford
    TAA / Holgate / Webster
    Salah / Mane / KDB / Traore
    Vardy / Ings / Maupay

    Button / Lund / Williams / Cantwell  

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Henderson next week would be odd given blank in 28 - he also misses 31 though that’s possibly a DGW in 34/7.

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      With 2ft I'd get Grealish - you can always sell him when Mane's fit again.

  7. mr messi
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Looking to get rid of Mané and Greenwood. Which striker to bring in Auba, Aguero or Jiminez ?

  8. n-doggg
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Either of these worth a hit?

    1. DCL to Aubameyang
    2. Gazza to McCarthy

    1. jonnybhoy
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      1

    2. kennethrhcp

      Nah....Dcl decent this week

  9. pingissimus

    2 months, 6 days ago

    Notional WC differential team - half of it is under 5% ownership. Looks pretty tidy to me. Key template there plus double SU defence if needed. Auba and Rich add firepower and form from Fleck Wood and Redmond.

    Pope McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Stevens Egan Lascelles
    Mo KdB Rich Redmond Fleck
    Auba Ings Wood

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Fleck to Mooy?

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Like it - another sub 1% sleeper.

    2. FPL_DON

      like

  10. Fudgy

    Mahrez is being overlooked here

    1. JJeyy
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      True, I have him, best stats in the game bar Salah and Aguero

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Has better g+a per minute than anyone besides Aguero 🙂

        1. JJeyy
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yes but i took into account the short cameos affect per min stats

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'd be straight on him if I had any idea of when he's going to play...

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Have a good bench and don't worry about it because he delivers when he plays

        1. Tinkermania
          2 months, 6 days ago

          1 pointer incoming

          1. Fudgy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Then a 13 pointer next game, it's fine.

    3. Tinkermania
      2 months, 6 days ago

      rotation risk!

    4. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Too much risk

  11. Citizen Kane
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Sarr → Traore -4 OR
    Keep and play Cantwell or Lund

    1. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Wait for Pearson's word on Sarr

  12. JJeyy
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Bite the bullet now and transfer out Lundstram to Baldock?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      when I've a ft spare I'll do similar I'd say

    2. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 6 days ago

      If I had a ft I would

    3. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Considering the same, whether it is Stevens or Baldock. But doubt it is worth -4, I can do it next week for free. I guess I just play Dunk now and hope he does something else than og or yc.

      1. JJeyy
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Lund to Stevens -4 or get soyuncu off bench?

  13. kennethrhcp

    2 months, 6 days ago

    no doubt raised already... but business end of the season and here's a week of free info to non members to boost the business that is ffs.

    cant remember the last time I wasnt a member but reckon I'll not rejoin next season

    1. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Why will you not rejoin? Not helping you?

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I always joined as I used here so much just for interaction with the community and felt I was helping out with the cost of running the site

        now it just feels more business driven and less enjoyable. just my opinion.

        1. Fudgy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Okay fair enough. This place has been more a business and less a FPL forum for a long time now though as they ban us for just having little jokes now.

          1. kennethrhcp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            around 2 years or so it's been like this I'd say

        2. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Nail on the head mate, and exactly why I didn't get membership this year. Look at the company accounts on Companies House (takes 10 seconds to Google them) - they certainly don't need any pity £15s!

          1. kennethrhcp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            miss the old school half underground feel that used to be here... years ago I know

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            My last year. I doubt they will miss me, just a -1 stat that they can easily afford

    2. beric
      • 8 Years

      Why wont you pay up next year ken?

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        it's too much of a business n not a great community feel anymore

        the money is feck all really but this pushing weak enough content alot and then trying to generate more members by giving out stats for free at points is just kind of annoying

        sorry I'm not eloquent 🙂

        just wrote down what I was thinking there tbh.

        1. beric
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Fair enough mate! I agree, it feels very different here to when i used to be a regular years ago

    3. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'm not a member, not bothered reading the info anyway out of respect to members (not). Too lazy, Feel the game is about obvious decisions and a bit of gut instinct.

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I hear ya on the obvious part. tbh the main tool I use is the season ticket. do t trust RMT's

    4. JohnRoss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Fair enough. Doesnt bother me tbh. The number of people on here Vs overall players is negligible.

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        like I said above it's more down to the feel of the place these days. it's a business... not as much aplace for fantasy nerds to have good back n forth

        Will definitely wait to make any moves

        Didn't notice the hit, just Mane out in that case and the other move for free next week.

    Is it time to ship Lund or is he worth holding? Seems to be getting less minutes and has a blank in 28

    1. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Holding for now.

    Vardy or DCL > Auba/Aguero worth a hit?

    1. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Nah, not much rotation ahead for the former two.

    2. BOATIES FC

    Would ypu ship Mane out for -4 (then for who?) or keep and play Rico/Kelly this week?

    Already have Salah, KdB and Grealish in midfield.

    Thanks

  23. OLLY G

    Manchester United chief Ed Woodward knew fans had turned on him as far back as November when a group threatened to douse him with Tabasco sauce.

    ever read a funnier sentence lol

  25. Kryptonite666
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    do we know if Kelly is likely to play ?

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Probably benched.

  26. phily4321
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    A) Henderson & lascelles
    B) Dubravka & O'Connell

    Already have enda Stevens Trent & robbo

    Worried about Newcastle defenders rotation and minutes

      A for me mate!! I have them 2!! Lascelles is Captain so you would think he’s as nailed on as anyone of them!

    2. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Henderson has blank coming and cant play against pool soon too.

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Unless you have a backup keeper who plays, it has to be B as Henderson will miss both GW28 and GW31.

      I have McCarthy too, I'm on WC.

      Looking at the recent rotation and minutes of their CBS, I'm swaying towards B) anyway

  27. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Am I the only one on here not playing WC or taking a hit?!

    Starting to feel a bit left out or should I just look forward to having a slight upper hand before the GW even starts?

    IF I were to take a hit it would be one of these but to me none seem justified:
    A) DCL > Auba
    B) DCL > Jimi
    C) Soy / Lunds > Robbo / VVD

    Do you agree with me or should I just get in the hits line?

      You’ve lost Mane and you’ll want to bring him back - think of it as an effective minus 8 and then you’re bang on trend 🙂

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Lol. I did indeed lose Mané with my FT. Decided there’s too much uncertainty re. how long until he is back to full fitness/ how much he’ll be managed back.

        Seems crazy that not taking a hit this week seems a differential!

    Just seen via Ben Crelin's twitter that there is some kind of chance of a DGW in the next game week or two? Apparently the Man City Arsenal game could be re-arranged for as early as this coming game week. Anyone have any more insight on this? Seems pretty unlikely?

    1. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I think Ben means if they do it they probably will announce it today or tomorrow. If you hear nothing then it's probably not going to happen.

  29. ZAWAd25

    2 months, 6 days ago

    Better combo going forward?

    A) Aguero & Traore
    B) Aubameyang & Grealish

  30. JohnRoss

    Greenwood to be benched after his performance vs city you reckon?

    1. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      He would have been benched regardless, imo.

    2. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      More likely than not
