Shots on target season ticker: Gameweek 27

Here are my shots on target and shots on target conceded tickers for Gameweek 27.

Shots on Target ticker GW27-32 2015-16

Shots on Target Conceded ticker GW27-32 2015-16

The tickers list the Gameweek 30 match between Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion, but that might be postponed if the Gunners win their FA Cup fifth round replay against Hull City. The six-gameweek average is a four or five-gameweek average for the teams with blank fixtures.

In Gameweek 26 the ticker underestimated the average number of shots on target per team by 0.04. There were 13 teams within two shots on target of the ticker value, including nine within one shot on target. The range was 8.03.

Liverpool hit nine shots on target against Aston Villa and scored with six of them as they exceeded their ticker value by 4.45. Stoke City beat their ticker value by 3.25 as they fired six shots on target against Bournemouth.

The Potters also did well defensively, limiting Bournemouth to two attempts on goal, 3.58 below the ticker value. Manchester City succeeded in limiting Tottenham Hotspur to three shots on target, which was 2.93 below the ticker value, but it was not enough to avoid defeat.

  1. Hi Diva,

    More great work, as always!! Thanks.

    I’m interested why Sunderland are so stand-out in terms of shots conceded, when it seems they’re at least a little better defensively lately, certainly compared to Norwich.

    I’m obviously asking because I felt Norwich had a greater chance of conceding more goals than Sunderland (when choosing between Vardy and Payet for captain)


    • This is the season ticker so it takes a while for any recent improvement to make a major impact. Sunderland are the worst team in the Premier League at conceding shots on target away from home, while West Ham are the fourth best at hitting the target at home.

      I was tempted to double up on Hammers midfielders this week, but the uncertainty around who would start (despite Doosra’s helpful input) means I’ve stuck to just Payet.

      Check back in a bit to see what the form ticker says!
