Premier League game states, 2020-21
What I’ve done below is to measure how long each club has spent in each of the three main “game states” – i.e. winning, drawing and losing.
I’ve then converted these into percentages because I include stoppage time, which means that even when every club has played the same number of matches they will have a slightly different total number of minutes played.
I’ve then ranked clubs by the difference between the share of time they’ve spent winning versus losing, which feels like the fairest way to do it (and also gives you the nice smooth graph below).
