“So is it Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea or somebody else who landed the best attacking signing?”
The algorithm uses Stratabet data to give each signing a percentage rating, based on key factors.
The first one is an ‘expected goals’ value based on their recent attacking output, combining chances created and finished, scaled to a 38-game season so as not to penalise players who haven’t featured regularly.
The second factor is how their output compares with their new team-mates, which determines whether they offer a genuine upgrade or just additional competition for places.
The final factor is whether the areas of the pitch they’ve looked most dangerous in suggests that they’ll be a good tactical fit for their new club and – even better – if they address a potential weakness.
So is it Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea or somebody else who has secured the best attacking signing of the January window?
