Motherwell are currently fifth in the 2021-22 Scottish Premiership standings with 18 points from their 13 games. They have been decent going forward and have scored 17 goals but have conceded the third-most goals with 21 in the division. They were able to win their most recent game against Aberdeen, but were out of form and had lost four of their previous five games before travelling to Aberdeen. Playing as a striker, Anthony Watt has been their top-scorer and the joint top-scorer of the division, with seven goals for them. Midfielder Kevin van Veen has also been good for them and has scored four league goals as well. In this post, we will look at the stats and the attacking dashboard of Tony Watt for this season in the Premiership.
The above viz shows the attacking and creativity dashboard of Tony Watt in the Scottish Premiership this season. Watt is the joint-top scorer in the division with seven goals to his name and has been the club’s most important player. The black line in the above viz shows the average for the particular stat for all strikers in the Premiership. It is visible that Watt has been considerably better than most other strikers in almost all the stats, other than dribbling. The striker will hope to keep scoring in the coming weeks and clinch the golden boot of the competition.
Watt’s shot map represents his presence and domination in the penalty area. He has been a real threat and constant trouble for the defenders. He has taken almost all of his shots from inside the box, with only a few from long range. He has been holding up the ball well and has scored all seven of his goals from inside the penalty area. He has shown that he is one of the best in the division when it comes to finishing.
In the above viz we can see the heat map of Watt. It is visible that he has been working hard for the team and covers a lot of ground. He plays centrally but likes to drift a little towards the left. He likes to stay around the centre line and is good at making in behind-runs for the team. The striker’s work rate has been great, and fans will hope that he keeps getting on the scoresheet to help Motherwell finish as high as possible in the Scottish Premiership.
