West Ham had the most possession at 57%
However we were pushed back and Burnley had the better of territory at 53% to our 47%
Burnley created 14 chances to 7 by West Ham
Total Shots were 17-11 in Burnley’s favour and 5-4 in their favour for shots on target.
Both teams put in quite a few crosses.
With the extra possession, it led to far more passes for us
We completed 340 of our 453 passes, giving a 75% pass completion.
Burnley completed 248 of their 338 passes, 73%
But attacking third pass numbers were very similar as a lot of our extra passes were from deeper positions.
19% of our passes were in our defensive third, 55% in the middle third and 26% in the attacking third.
51% of our attempted outfield passes were forward, 27% backward and 22% square.
6.8% of our passes were long.
Cresswell attempted the most passes for us at 52, also the joint highest number of completed with Noble at 43.
Just 9 passes from Perez in the 1st half before being subbed.
Declan Rice at 93% had our highest pass completion % with 42 from 45 passes completed.
Anderson really disappointing with just 62%, 28 from his 45 passes finding a team mate.
Cresswell was involved in 5 of the top 10 pass combinations.
With the top pass combination being 30 passes to Anderson.
Antonio with good attacking stats from right back including 7 crosses, 9 passes in attacking third and 5 completed take ons.
The take ons being the highest of the match compared to Anderson only completing 1 of his 6 attempted take ons.
Ogbonna with our highest defensive stats but lower than normal with the amount of pressure we were under in defence.
The highest clearances was just 5 from Ogbonna although there was a number spread across the team with no player standing out.
Rice with 6 completed tackles from 6, the highest of the match.
No tackles from Diop which is unusual.
Some views on individual stats.
Antonio – Good Stats, seems to be getting more involved game by game, good attacking stats from right back with 5 take ons. Will always have a lower pass completion as this is not his game.
Ogbonna – Although having our highest defensive stats, they were still low and with diop, did not take charge of clearances as we normally find with a centre back pairing.
Diop – As above but with lower stats, no tackles?
Cresswell – Better going forward, good passing stats and involved in a lot of the pass combinations. Made 30 passes to Anderson.
Snodgrass – Not that good for 45mins.
Rice – Excellent passing stats with 93% pass completion and 6 tackles from 6 won.
Noble – Good passing stats but nothing else really in attack.
Anderson – His worse stats of the season from what i can remember, 62% pass completion, only 1 take on. Only 1 tackle in defensive stats.
Perez – Waste of time for 45 mins, not involved in any stats. Just 7 passes completed from 9
Arnautovic – Not much happening by his standards.
Carroll – Poor pass completion just 6 from 11 completed. But did have 3 of our 4 shots on target. Should spend all his time in the box and not involved in passing and build up play.
Diangana – ok in attacking stats for 45 mins but no real impact.
Silva – Not enough time to show anything
