Premier League 2016-2017 Relegation Prediction Via the Shot Conceding Metric
Posted on: December 5th, 2016
In the table below I have added the teams that were in the bottom 3 re the conceding shot metric in the Premier League ( bottom 4 2014-2015) to show that there is some correlation between conceding shots and being relegated which appears to be a logical conclusion.
What is of further interest is that teams that have been in the bottom 3 in a season with regard to shots conceded and have not gone down have found that they have in general been relegated in subsequent seasons.
Sundererland and Crystal Palace in the table below are the only 2 teams to have not been relegated in that time period .
In terms of the bottom three this season re shots conceded <> Burnley , Sunderland and Hull
To be relegated
Hull 4/11, Burnley 8/11, Sunderland 5/6 , Swansea 10/11 , Boro 4/1, West Ham 6/1 , Palace 7/1
Crystal Palace at 7/1 fit the profile of a relegated team in terms of the shot conceding metric with Hull, and Burnley likely to join them .
West Ham 9th
West Ham Relegated
West Ham 13th
West Ham 12th
