I've been spending a few posts looking at shot creation in the Premiership. One of the things I haven't spent much time on is differences across teams in in terms of who has been creating the most and least shots from different kinds of situations. These situations are open play, corners, free kicks, fast breaks, and penalties.
So here are the absolute numbers of shots created in the first half of the season per team/match from different situations in the match (shots are defined as all shots on goal; I leave out penalties since they are rare and therefore not all that interesting to look at across teams). As before, the numbers are courtesy of the Opta/Guardian chalkboards and cover the first half of this year's EPL season.
Without much ado, here are shots from open play.
Shots created from open play ranged from around 8 to about 13, on average, in the first half of the season. The ranking of teams makes all kinds of sense, given what we know about team quality. But there are exceptions: Everton is up there with the league's top teams at about 13 shots created from open play; and Man City is relatively low at around 10.
What about shots created from corners? Here we go.
