I’m still using 20/21 stats with adjustments where necessary for player transfers. That will continue until around GW6-10. I’m not making any huge adjustments on the basis of 3 gameweeks.
The strength of the defence or attacking teams are based on the averages of their expected goals for/against and their actual goals for/against with a general adjustment for home and away. . The teams are then divided up into 5 colours of 8 home/away teams each. The rankings and colours are therefore purely factual so please don’t moan to me about the order.
Player values and PPMs are as of Monday 13 September prior to the Everton v Burnley game.
