Crazy Stat Time!

Recommended Posts

Vardy trails Harvey Barnes in the open-play goal standings.

While Vardy tops City’s scoring with 13 in all competitions, seven of those have come from the penalty spot. With Barnes’ rasping shot in the first half adding a seventh to his tally, he has, perhaps surprisingly, scored more often from open play than City’s talisman.

Barnes’ seventh of the campaign also means he has equalled his number of goals from last season in half the time. It took him 42 games to reach that total last term, while he’s only played 20 matches so far in 2020-21

Brendan Rodgers has the best win percentage (all competitions) of any permanent Leicester manager.

He has the best win percentage for league games - and all have been top flight matches. (Pearson, who is close behind, benefits from seasons in L1/Championship)

Yeah but yeah but yeah but.

Rank all of the players in the Premier League by points per game this season and there is perhaps a surprising name at the top. Yes, it’s Albrighton.

The City winger/wing-back is averaging 2.67 points per game this campaign, having won eight and lost one of the nine Premier League games he has featured in. When he hasn’t played, City have won one and lost four.

There are two other City players inside the top 10. Wilfred Ndidi is currently third, behind John Stones, on 2.5 points per game, while Dennis Praet is tied ninth on 2.25 points per game with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho and Ilkay Gundogan.

Just seen that, that's crazy, remember in his first few seasons there were similar stats about just how much more we won when Albrighton played too. Just shows how we always look much better with him in the team doing dirty work for other players, so they have more freedom.

And some on here consider him somewhat inept.

Make that 9 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat when Albrighton plays, world class again today should start every game for us.

19 – Leicester's start is the 19th time a top-flight side have won least seven of their first nine away league games of a season – none of the previous 18 have finished outside of the top four, whilst 50% of those sides have gone on to win the division that season. Contenders? https://t.co/sue0LMAXPb

Not unless we can sort our home form.

According to MOTD, we haven’t lost our first game of the year since 2008.

 

Shame our Boxing Day games aren’t as successful!
