Goals in last 15 minutes for and against all 20 Premier League clubs – Serious impact on Newcastle United
When it comes to late Premier League goals, you would imagine it would be a pretty even spread amongst clubs.
Maybe the top teams having better stats but much of a muchness amongst the rest.
However, it doesn’t work out exactly according the full Premier League table.
Down below is a table showing how many goals each Premier League club has scored in the final 15 minutes of matches, then how many conceded, with then the difference in the final column.
Our thanks to Chris Holt for the table:
As you can see, the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City are the biggest beneficiaries, as well as Wolves, with a large helping hand from Newcastle.
However, despite being third in the table, Tottenham only have a net benefit of one goal in the final stages of matches. Very surprising when you would be thinking they’d be getting stronger and scoring goals as weaker teams tire.
As for Newcastle United, it is pretty feeble reading, only four scored in the final stages of matches but 12 conceded, only three clubs having a worse record.
When it comes to winning/losing points, you get to see the real impact of these late goals on Newcastle United.
The games where Newcastle have gained points with goals in the last 15 minutes…
Newcastle 2 Man City 1 (1-1 at 75 minutes)
Losing points in the final minutes…
Newcastle 1 Chelsea 2 (0-0 at 75 mins)
Man Utd 3 Newcastle 2 (1-2 at 75 mins)
Newcastle 1 Wolves 2 (1-1 at 75 mins)
Watford 1 Newcastle 1 (0-1 at 75 mins)
Wolves 1 Newcastle 1 (0-1 at 75 mins)
So in total, two points gained and ten points lost in the final 15 minutes of matches, a net loss of eight points.
That net loss of eight points would have put Newcastle on 33 points now and possibly as high as ninth in the table.
