VMC's Stat Attack - Volume 1

In the first edition of VMC`s Stat Attack we`ll be taking a look at the week that just transpired in the Premier League for all teams involved. Think of it as a quick recap of each week which gives you the ability to say things like, "Did you realize QPR and Wigan both had Save Percentages under 45%, with Wigan`s being 33% and QPR`s being 44%?" or "did you know that United were outshot in their game against Everton and should have lost by a higher margin, if not for some spectacular saves?" Being the first week of the season the stats are a bit on the weak side, but the small percentage of me that`s English decided to persevere and just do it anyway. Therefore, we have:

Week 1
Most Goals For: 5 - Fulham and Swansea
Most Goals Against: 5 - QPR and Norwich
Most Shots Taken: 20 - QPR and City
Most Shots On Target: 15 - City
Fewest Shots: 3 - Sunderland
Fewest Shots on Target: 2 - Sunderland
Most Corners: 8 - United and West Brom
Fewest Corners: 0 - Sunderland
Most Saves: 11 - Chelsea
Most Yellow Cards: 5 - Stoke
Random Stat of the Week: Of all the teams to score this past week, Everton had the lowest shooting percentage at 6.25%
Most Surprising: Arsenal outshot Sunderland nearly 5 to 1, and yet both teams walked away with a single point.

Tune in next week, when the picture continues to get just a little bit clearer.

What's most interesting is that QPR had 20 shots yet still ended up on the end of a 5-0 tonking! TBH, surprised one of Hughes teams didn't manage a draw at least, as he seems to be rather fond of that result IIRC! Nice one Philly.

I wonder if you could go further, wha percentage of goals wer from free kicks or penalties, was their more headed goals than by foot? the lit is endless, but PBM you have shown some surprising stats, will the trend stay that way I doubt it.
