Season Review 2018/19

Welcome


Welcome to the new-look OptaPro English Premier League analytical season review.

Now interactive and showcasing a host of detailed performance metrics, this report provides insight across the competition, applying innovative frameworks produced from our data science division.

The expansion of our data science team alongside OptaPro’s new football intelligence operation, led by Miguel Rios, has not only allowed OptaPro to continue to innovate with performance data, but to also crucially ensure that the application of analytics remains relevant to those working within professional football, ensuring it can be applied to inform decision-making.

Within this review, we share a comprehensive breakdown of performance at the key ends of the pitch, as well as sharing detailed insight on team style, both in and out of possession. Detailed player analysis also features, with key metrics ranked across different positions.

The past 12 months at OptaPro has seen a continued approach to further explore how performance data can inform decision-making across performance analysis, recruitment and long-term strategic planning.

I hope you find some interesting insights from this review and we look forward to seeing you all in pre-season.
