Reading were fucking terrible all season and it shows here.. Fulham, Sunderland and West Ham all drop down a few places once we remove blocked shots.

At the top of the table, Spurs and Bale were dominant. United's skill and points total still isn't reflected here in their FenClose score, although this number (57.9%) is superior to their Close TSR/Corsi of 55.76%.
