We’ve looked at who’s gaining the most points by losing ranks, so it makes sense for us to track and look at who’s giving away points by losing ranks. The answer lies above all in Leicester, who have already managed to lose four games after taking the lead. Oh, Brenda.
At the other end of the scale, a team stays flawless and wins every time they take the lead. You are not. Or you. All the others fall somewhere in the middle, as is usual with any ranking system.
The other sporadic classification it’s here…
20 Leicester – 14 points down
8 advantages, 3 wins, 1 draw, 4 losses
Christ this is ugly. especially if you remember Leicester are also one of two sides to have a single point from falling behind.. Basically if Leicester fall behind they lose and if Leicester continue they usually keep losing. Brendan, man, come on. figure it out You shouldn’t and can’t bypass our league with a 50-50 chance of avoiding losing games you’re leading. You absolutely cannot be up front in games and then lose 5-2 and 6-2 like the not-so-smart Foxes have already done at Brighton and Spurs this season. Leicester, having managed as many Premier League games as Newcastle this season, feels like madness.
19 Nottingham Forest – 10 points
6 wins, 2 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses
Back-to-back 3-2 home defeats to other promoted teams after taking the lead must be seen as an unorthodox and, in all likelihood, unsuccessful approach to trying to stay in the Premier League. Going 1-0 up against Liverpool and staying 1-0 up was a much better plan, but it was quickly abandoned in the next game at Arsenal.
18. Crystal Palace – 10 points
8 starts, 4 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses
The moral of this story is not to shut down Crystal Palace games after the first goal, assuming all is known now. Only Spurs have gained more points from lost positions, but Palace have been a waste when it comes to coming out on top. Nine points lost due to position losses and 10 points lost due to position gains somehow seems appropriate for a Palace team that looks almost very good but isn’t quite. fun but.
17. Wolves – 8 points
5 wins, 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses
Given how terrible a struggle Wolves have when it comes to scoring goals to take the lead, you’d think they’d be a bit more cautious if they managed to score one. Not surprisingly, the two games that a team with just six goals to their name could lose from winning positions ended 2-1, against Leeds on opening day and against Palace recently. It would mean a bold change in strategy, but it does make you wonder if Wolves will consider scoring more than once in a Premier League game at some point this season. Could help.
16. Southampton – 8 points
6 wins, 3 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses
Traditional powerhouses in this particular field, this should no longer be seen as a lackluster start from Ralph Hasenhuttl’s undeniable leaders. They had a glorious start to the season managing to lose to Spurs after a 4-1 lead and the speed at which a 1-0 lead turned into a 2-1 loss to Everton was quite spectacular even for the high standards of the Saints.
15 Leeds – 8 points
6 wins, 3 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses
Let’s be honest, we all thought there would be three more points on that account after Rodrigo seemingly foolishly gave them a 1-0 lead at Anfield.
14. Fulham – 8 points
8 advantages, 5 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses
Heading into the not-so-bad range, and there’s a cleanup in Fulham’s wins and points drops. After adding seven points in seven games that they have fallen behind, they have returned eight points in the eight games that they have led. Basically, they’re fine, right?
13. Bournemouth – 7 points
6 wins, 3 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss
You can take some comfort from the fact that neither the first nor (it turned out right away) last team to fall in love with Antonio Conte’s Spurs and their rope-a-dope chicanes.
12. Everton – 7 points
6 wins, 3 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss
Alex Iwobi made the classic mistake of scoring too early against Manchester United, who beat Frank Lampard’s Everton 2-1, while Brentford and Leeds set the Toffees back in four days in August. Everton have now taken a simple approach to avoid winning from a losing position, or losing from a winning position, by either keeping a clean sheet or not scoring (or both) in all of their last five games.
11. Chelsea – 7 points
9 advantages, 6 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss
Taking the lead against Southampton after 23 minutes and still being down at half-time is silly behavior and means that Champions League winner Thomas Tuchel has frankly deserved to be sacked. Manchester United’s draw was obviously upsetting, but Tottenham’s draw in a game that Chelsea completely dominated was completely absurd.
10. Newcastle – 5 points
8 advantages, 6 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss
It’s annoying not to have a 3-1 lead against Manchester City, but Newcastle are not the first and they won’t be the last to suffer from this particular annoyance. Quite unfortunate that Liverpool turned it around too at Anfield in their only Premier League loss this season.
9. Manchester City – 4 points
11 leads, 9 wins, 2 draws
Taking just one point at Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa seems like overly careless behavior on the part of Manchester City and it’s easy to forget that Newcastle’s comeback from 3-1 deficit actually came in a game in which they had won 1-1. 0 from the beginning.
8. Aston Villa – 3 points
4 wins, 3 wins, 1 loss
You can’t lose many leads if you don’t take many leads. Clever stuff from the Midlands Fighters.
7. West Ham – 3 points
5 wins, 4 wins, 1 loss
Justified to take great offense at the nature of the stain on his record at Chelsea. And they certainly felt very offended.
6. Brentford – 2 points
4 wins, 3 wins, 1 draw
One of only seven teams to have lost a game after taking the lead, which is good. He only led in four games, which is bad.
5. Liverpool – 2 points
5 wins, 4 wins, 1 draw
It’s certainly a good record to hold onto for leads, but it’s also a pathetic number of leads for a club of Liverpool’s stature. Why do you guys only lead in five games out of twelve? And how is one of them against Manchester City, fools?
4.Brighton – 2 points
6 leads, 5 wins, 1 draw
Rightly so very good material, no notes.
3. Tottenham – 2 points
9 leads, 8 wins, 1 draw
Spurs gaining some points from lost positions feels great, but it’s not. We’ve mentioned it before, but whenever people start talking about “interesting stats” we like to summarize our favorite Premier League stat: that Spurs have the most points gained per position lost in Our League history. , as well as have also lost. most points from positions won. People generally like it. It has a beautiful Spursy ring. The thing is, we have no idea if it’s true. But it feels good, doesn’t it? It feels absolutely fine. We have no interest in verifying this because we don’t want to discover that we are wrong. This season is rubbish though, as the 1-1 draw at West Ham was the only time Spurs have taken fewer than three points in the surprisingly large number of games they have led.
2. Arsenal – 2 points
11 leads, 10 wins, 1 draw
If he lost just five points going all-in, it’s reasonable to assume he didn’t lose many of the winning positions. And until a 1-1 draw at Southampton that understandably irked Mikel Arteta, Arsenal were flawless in that regard.
1. Manchester United – 0 points
7 leads, 7 wins
Slowly but surely, Manchester United is ceasing to be a joke. They’re far from perfect, but Erik Ten Hag is definitely getting somewhere. Winning every time he takes the lead is definitely a good policy for United to follow.
