Every Premier League team's...BTTS stats
Based on last season's data, we reveal BTTS percentages for each Premier League team and how those may change - or remain the same - next term.
Arsenal: 26/38 (68 per cent)
The Gunners were the league’s joint-most reliable BTTS side last term, and have now ranked inside the top five in each of the past three seasons.
They will surely be among the leaders again this year given that they are yet to make any defensive signings this summer.
Aston Villa: 30/46 in the Championship (65 per cent)
Villa were among the most exciting teams in the Championship last season, ranking fourth in BTTS matches.
There tend to be more goals in the second tier than the Premier League, though, so that mark should drop this season, particularly after 25-goal striker Tammy Abraham returned to Chelsea this summer.
Bournemouth: 17/38 (45 per cent)
BTTS landed in over 55 per cent of Bournemouth’s matches in each of their first three seasons in the Premier League, but their struggles to score away from home last term dropped them below 50 per cent.
They can still be relied upon at Dean Court, though, with goals at both ends in 53 per cent of their home matches last season.
Brighton: 20/38 (53 per cent)
Brighton were bang average in terms of BTTS in the Premier League last season, and will likely be around the middle again next term under Graham Potter.
Potter’s Swansea side ranked joint-12th in BTTS percentage in the Championship.
Burnley: 21/38 (55 per cent)
Burnley defied their defensive reputation by ranking sixth in BTTS percentage last season.
The Clarets are a safer BTTS bet at home than away, having scored in 16 of their 19 matches at Turf Moor while keeping just five clean sheets.
Chelsea: 16/38 (42 per cent)
Chelsea’s low BTTS percentage last season was a result of their excellent defensive record. They kept 16 clean sheets, the third-most in the division.
They will likely be a side to avoid again next season after selling their most dangerous attacking player in Eden Hazard.
Crystal Palace: 19/38 (50 per cent)
When it comes to BTTS, Palace were last season’s Jekyll and Hyde team.
Both teams scored in 37 per cent of their home matches – the joint-lowest mark in the league – compared to 63 per cent of their away games, which was the division’s third-highest mark.
Everton: 17/38 (45 per cent)
Only Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea kept more clean sheets in the Premier League last season than Everton, who have become very solid defensively under Marco Silva.
BTTS landed in under 50 per cent of their matches both at home and away.
Leicester: 22/38 (58 per cent)
Leicester have been ranked inside the top five in BTTS percentage in three of the last four Premier League campaigns.
They should again be among the most reliable sides this season, given that they’ve added Ayoze Perez up front and will likely lose Harry Maguire – their best defender – to Manchester United.
Liverpool: 17/38 (45 per cent)
Jurgen Klopp’s side only conceded 10 goals at home in the Premier League all season, with BTTS landing in just 37 per cent of their 19 games at Anfield.
There were, however, goals at both ends in 53 per cent of their away matches.
Manchester City: 17/38 (45 per cent)
City’s BTTS percentages were actually the exact inverse of Liverpool’s: 53 per cent at home and 37 per cent on the road.
Don’t be tempted into backing BTTS in their big matches. It landed in just three of their 10 games against top-six sides.
Manchester United: 26/38 (68 per cent)
United tied with Arsenal for the highest BTTS percentage last season, but this mark could have been much higher had Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not arrived in December.
Both teams scored in 62 per cent of United’s 21 matches with the Norwegian in charge, compared to 82 per cent of the previous 17 games under Jose Mourinho.
Newcastle: 18/38 (47 per cent)
Newcastle scored just 42 league goals last season – the second-fewest of any side that stayed up – and recorded the 12th-highest BTTS percentage.
Despite the arrival of striker Joelinton, who netted seven league goals in the Bundesliga last term, that doesn’t look like improving for the Magpies.
Norwich: 31/46 in the Championship (67 per cent)
Championship title winners Norwich netted 93 goals last season – six more than any other side in the Championship.
Inevitably, the Canaries’ attack-mindedness led to gaps at the back and they were involved in the equal second-most BTTS games in their division.
Sheffield United: 20/46 in the Championship (43 per cent)
Sheffield United’s promotion to the Premier League was based on a strong defence, which led to them conceding just 41 goals in 46 matches – the equal-fewest in the Championship.
The Blades’ BTTS percentage was the equal fourth-lowest in the second tier during 2018/19.
Southampton: 25/38 (66 per cent)
Despite finishing 16th in the Premier League, Southampton had the third-highest BTTS percentage last season.
That total included 15 of their 19 league games at St Mary’s, compared to just 10 on the road.
Tottenham: 19/38 (50 per cent)
Tottenham failed to fire at both ends of the pitch last season, scoring 67 and conceding 39 in the Premier League.
Spurs had a similar record at home, where BTTS landed nine times, and away, where it landed on 10 occasions.
Watford: 23/38 (61 per cent)
Watford finished in the top four when it comes to BTTS last season, with just Southampton, Manchester United and Arsenal ending with a higher percentage.
The Hornets are yet to strengthen in attack this summer but haven’t lost any of their best players either, so this percentage is likely to remain the same next term.
West Ham: 18/38 (47 per cent)
West Ham ended the 2018/19 season with a below-average BTTS percentage, which was mainly down to their failure to score in 14 games.
The signings of Sebastien Haller and Pablo Fornals should increase that attacking firepower for the coming campaign.
Wolves: 19/38 (50 per cent)
Wolves made a strong return to the Premier League last term as they finished seventh, scoring 47 goals and conceding 46 across the season.
Both teams scored in 11 of their games away from home, and in just eight at Molineux.
