The stats are pretty meaningless after only 3 games though. City seemingly create chances at will, whoever they play. Then two games away from home against teams who play attacking football. It creates a skewed data set.
Of course it's skewed, I said that initially, but I've also watched each game and those stats represent exactly what I've seen. Brighton should have scored 3 or 4 against us, it wasn't good defending from us to only concede 1 away from home, it was luck that they couldn't finish. We offered little going forward that game.
Yesterday we were superb going forward and we took our chances, but again could have conceded 2 or 3 easily.
Week 1 - City had the highest xG at 3.18
Week 2 - Brighton had 2nd highest xG behind City 2.4
Week 3 - Watford had 3rd highest xG behind us and Liverpool 2.29.
We've got to improve defensively or change the system against the better teams away. Those numbers are too high.
