The season is upon us!

Thanks to all our contributors here: Thom Lawrence, Peter Owen, Clarke Ruehlen, Flavio Fusi, Benjamin Pugsley and especially Mohammed Mohammed who braved slow internet speeds from the heart of Africa to submit no less than four previews (three PL and a Ligue 1). A great effort all round.

And big thanks to all who shared, retweeted, took the previews to forums or reddit or otherwise just enjoyed and interacted.

This isn’t the end of 2016-17 StatsBomb previews, Dustin Ward–notably absent from this series– has been cooking up a storm for the Bundesliga, so watch this space.

    Something the analytics community has to fix:

    Cazorla got an assist for passing the ball to Oxlade-Chamberlain and watching him slalom through 4 defenders.

    Coutinho gets nothing on the stat sheet for a sublime flick into Wijnaldum’s run that opened up the defense for a lobbed pass across the box for Lallana’s goal.
