    Player Positional Tracker: Leicester v Man United

    By Colin Trainor
  • Leicester 5 v 3 Man United

    Visualisation that shows the smoothed positions of players around the time as indicated.  The locations are identified with reference to actions as seen through the eyes of Opta.


    • Leicester’s bold attacking move with playing 3 up front was rewarded as the home team managed to win all 3 points
    • Another game rolls by in which van Persie didn’t really play a major part.  His dot remained incredibly small during large parts of the match.  Has the time come for LvG to bite the bullet and drop his Dutch comrade?  This may be preferred instead of trying to crowbar the triumvirate of RvP, Rooney and Falcao into the same attacking formation
