Aston Villa v City: Stat hit

Ahead of the game I wrote a piece for EPL Index looking at the comparison of the numbers between City's home and away games and looking ahead at the Villa game, here are some of the key stats:

  • Villa lost 2-1 to Newcastle in their last Barclays Premier League game, with Robbie Keane scoring his third goal since signing for Aston Villa on loan
  • Keane's goals have come from just ten shots on goal with eight on target
  • Keane has covered 18.7 miles since he joined Aston Villa, and has also completed a pass in his opponent's half every 2 minutes 51 seconds while on the pitch
  • Stiliyan Petrov has been at the heart of Villa's midfield this season and is in the top ten players for total ground covered this season with 142.5 miles on the clock
  • Fulham were the latest team to suffer defeat at the hands of league leaders Man City
  • City beat Fulham 3-0 in theirlast game with goals from Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and a Chris Baird own goal
  • Adam Johnson was at the heart of City's attacks, winning a penalty and putting in the cross for Baird's own goal
  • Johnson has five goals and five assists this season, contributing to or scoring a goal every 82 minutes, the seventh best in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index (discounting players who have had a hand in less than five goals)
  • Free scoring City have five players in the top seven for minutes per goal or assist. Dzeko has contributed a goal or assist every 75 minutes on the pitch, Ballotelli every 79 minutes, and Aguero every 82 minutes
  • Aguero's goal was his 15thof the season and Dzeko's his 12th. Aguero's goals have come from 73 shots at goal with 56% on target, while Dzeko's have come from 70 shots at goal with 61% on target
