Take a sneak peak at some new Expected Goals 3.0 stats / by Matthias Kullowatz

By Matthias Kullowatz (@MattyAnselmo)

We have been hard at work on Expected Goals 3.0, which utilizes more-detailed information like distance to goal and angle off center for each shot. Additionally, we have information about the passer on each shot, which has led to the creation of xAssists--a weighted version of key passes. Here are your top 19 players by the sum of xGoals and xAssists. Why 19? Because I can't count.
