The handsome lads at bwin have put together the set piece statistics from Europe’s top five leagues. By analysing every set piece from the last three seasons, they have discovered that it’s Huddersfield’s Steve Mounié who is the most dangerous player in The Premier League from a dead ball situation.
It also turns out that Newcastle United are the least reliant on set pieces to create chances, Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored more goals from set pieces than any other player, and West Bromwich Albion are the Premier League side most dangerous from set pieces—with 29.4% of their shots as a result of them. Only Real Madrid, Juventus, and Monaco have a higher conversion rate in Europe. Long Live The Pulis. Over to you Pards.
