Football truly is a funny old game.

While I could see Palace beating Newcastle there is no way I could see Liverpool being turned over by the toffees!

I don't watch Liverpool that often but does Nunez miss a lot of chances on a regular basis?

DCL looked a handful tonight.

He does Tom.

Nunez is very similar to Jackson. Works his socks off and looks a fantastic player but same issues in the final third.

There’s a graphic on slysports which shows that Nunez has missed 26 big chances this season. Haaland has missed 30 and Jackson 20. Those calling for Watkins or Isak should note they’ve missed 20 and 15 respectively too.

fuser, that’s an interesting statistic. Thanks mate.

25 Apr 2024 14:02:12
Yes a v interesting stat Fuser and does put Jackson's misses in perspective. Haaland's 30 misses extraordinary.

26 Apr 2024 00:13:15
Really, Haaland is useless then? Ask Pep to swap him for Jackson - interesting to see what his response would be.

26 Apr 2024 07:40:30
No and neither is Watkins. Although only from the small amount of city games I’ve seen hasn’t been in such good form as last season.

I guess the stat should be a percentage of chances taken against missed.

Nunes has lower conversion rate than Jackson, statistically, solanke best at 53.9% followed by salah and isak.

26 Apr 2024 10:34:08
Thanks Matt very interesting. In a strange way I like stats but they always seem to lead to more questions than answers.

Jimbo I don't think anyone including me would dream uf suggesting that Haaland was useless. Would have him at the Bridge in an instant and had wanted hime here before he chose City. But I was struck by the stats for him tgis season that can be interepreted - but so can Jackson and others on the list - in a number of ways e. g. as a usually prolific striker going through a bad patch OR a striker who creates more chancves than most so can miss more than most but still scores plenty OR a player not naturally a striker converted to being one who is still adjusting to EPL and though creates/ gets a lot of chances and scores quite a few doesn't yet convert the proportion he should.

JBS, you make some valid points. I am not against stats but some are more relevant than others. I believe in certain areas observation is the best way to analyse performance. In any event, what is a”big chance” as opposed to a half chance or absolute sitter? You could argue that if a striker scores a lot of goals while having a high percentage of missed chances that indicates that he backs himself and doesn’t let his head drop.

Both good points Jimbo.
