Statistically Danny Rose was Spurs best defender

Some like them and some don't, but some statistics can be quite revealing so I've produced a few for you to muse over and draw your own opinions.


Spurs injuries
  • Tottenham have had more injuries than any other side in the Premier League last season with 45 main injuries according to physio room.

That statistic is hardly a surprise to Spurs fans, but with the muscle injury prevention training that Mauricio Pochettino does before every session, hopefully we will reduce the number of pulled hamstrings we get, especially that Aaron Lennon gets!

Fouls
  •  411 fouls against us, committed 403

Statistics to show where Spurs goals came from in the Premier League

  • Spurs scored 45 goals from inside the area
  • Spurs scored 10 goals from outside the area
  • Spurs scored 6 goals crossed from free-kicks
  • Spurs scored 2 goals direct from free-kicks
  • Spurs scored 2 goals from corners
  • Spurs scored 55 goals from 587 shots - a goal every 10.67 shots (Southampton 54 goals from 534 shots)
  • Spurs scored 17 left footed goals
  • Spurs scored 30 right footed goals
  • Spurs scored 6 headed goals

Statistics to show Spurs main goalscorers - total goals scored 91 in 54 matches in all competitions
  • Jermain Defoe (10) scored a goal every 117 minutes
  • Emmanuel Adebayor (14) scored a goal every 154 minutes
  • Harry Kane (4) scored a goal every 200 minutes
  • Roberto Solado (11) scored a goal every 227 minutes
  • Christian Eriksen (10) scored a goal every 260 minutes
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson (6) scored a goal every 346 minutes
  • Paulinho (8) scored a goal every 359 minutes
  • Nacer Chadli (5) scored a goal every 385 minutes
 

Statistics that show Spurs shot performance in the Premier League

  • Spurs had 46% shot accuracy
  • Spurs had 289 shots from inside the area (45 goals) = 1 goal every 6.62 shots
  • Spurs had 298 shots from outside the area (10 goals) = 1 goal every 29.8 shots

Statistics that show Spurs defensively in the Premier League

  • 559 interceptions
  • 81 blocks
  • 1045 clearances
  • 33 defensive errors
  • 21 errors led to a goal (Southampton 11, Arsenal 10, Chelsea 4, Everton 6)
Hardly any surprise that we had so many more defensive errors than other sides with a weak midfield most of the season.

When the midfield doesn't perform the pressure is on the defence more than it should be and when some of the defence are just going through the motions it exacerbates the problem.

The final set of statistics are quite revealing here though.

A look at the defenders and how many minutes they played divided by the number on goals conceded while they were on the pitch produces these results.


Statistics that show how our keeper performed in the Premier League

  • 14 clean sheets
  • 88 saves
  • 1.83 saves per goal
  • 53% keeper distribution accuracy
  • 38m keeper distribution length
  • 38 punches
  • 103 catches
  • Spurs conceded a goal every 58 minutes

Danny Rose Statistically Best
Right now we come to some statistics to measure our defenders in a basic way.

I’ve taken their time on the pitch and divided it by the goals conceded while they were playing to get an average time it took us to concede a goal (Includes penalties given away for which the player was sent off).
