Premier League Conceding the Opening Goal at Home Table

Posted on: November 27th, 2016 by Jonny Grossmark

If you look into the academic research into why there are so many games that end a draw in football the argument will be that this is because of expectation of the other team fighting back when they concede and the real reason is because of low goal production in general in football with the caveat that an early goal metric could result in acceleration of goal production which would result in lowered expectation of a draw .

footnote : Stoke last 30 home games in the Premier League when conceding the opening goal and 2/30 ended a DRAW
