FPL underlying stats GW26 – cumulative expected goals/assists and shot/key pass stats to GW25





This article was written on Tuesday 5th February and doesn’t include any stats from Wednesdays Everton v Man City game

Methods and Caveats for player rankings

Expected goals (xG) and assists (xA) is a stat where the probability is evaluated that any given shot or assist of a shot will end up as a goal.

Here I’ve taken the xG90 and xA90 and turned them into projected attacking FPL points for the season. No appearance points or clean sheet points or bonus just the basic goal and assist points. I’ve included the penalty part of xG for those players who are the designated penalty taker.

I’ve then adjusted midfielders and forward for the minutes they would be expected to play in each game. Generally by taking the average of the last 4 matches as a rule of thumb although there is discretion there.

There’s also the Shots and key passes per 90 in the schedule too.

This article is very time consuming and laborious and easy to make mistakes so apologies if there is any. Please point out any in the comments section.

What you see below is a graphic. Here’s the link to the google spreadsheet

The stats are from the excellent free site understat.com and the values are as of Tuesday 5 January..
