News today that Newcastle are at the top of at least one league this season.
So far this season Newcastle have been deemed the most accurate shooters in the Premier League, and they also have the best defense, when it comes to allowing their opponents shots on target.
So does that mean we are top of one league or two so far this season? That’s a difficult one. 😀
Newcastle have hit the target with 65% of their shots in the three Premier League games so far this season, which is the best percentage in the league.
And Newcastle have also allowed their opponents fewest shots on target – a total of just 10 – also the best in the league.
Of course there’s only league we are really interested in and Newcastle are currently in 8th position in the Premier League on 4 points after 3 games, but a win at home to Blackpool a week tomorrow can take us higher.
The statistics were compiled by Opta, and Newcastle are also one of only two sides who have named the same starting 11 in each of their first three league games so far this season – the other team being Bolton Wanderers.
