No better moment for a goal than just before half-time in the Premier League ?

Posted on: November 17th, 2016 by Jonny Grossmark

In the table below I have added all the games in the Premier League since 14-15 where the home team opened the scoring 40-HT 

23-6-3 <> the home teams won 72%

Since 2008-2009 in the Premier League in games where the home team were winning 1-0 at half time and 75% ended a home win.

In the table below in games where the home team opened the scoring on 45 minutes > the home teams won 87.5%
