On Thursday 28 January, Tottenham Hotspur host Liverpool at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. There's an interesting anomaly as to the when goals have been scored in Tottenham's and Liverpool's games so far in the Premier League this season.

Tottenham Hotspur

The Lilywhites occupy 5th place with 33 points from 18 games and although José Mourinho's team seem to be free-scoring they also concede quite a few shots and shots on target.

  • 64% of Tottenham's scored league goals so far this season have been scored in the first half (thus, 36% of Tottenham's goals this season have been scored in the second half).
  • 76% of Tottenham's conceded league goals so far this season have occurred in the second half (consequently, 24% of Tottenham's conceded goals this season have occurred in the first half).

At Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the numbers look even more askew:

  • 79% of Tottenham's scored league goals at home so far this season have been scored in the first half (as a result, 21% of Tottenham's goals at home this season have been scored in the second half).
  • 89% of Tottenham's conceded league goals at home so far this season have occurred in the second half (hence, 11% of Tottenham's conceded goals this season have occurred in the first half).

Liverpool

The Reds are 1 point ahead in 4th place with 34 points from 18 games. Jürgen Klopp sure have the firepower to bring down any team, but Liverpool haven't really been as good defensively as we've seen in recent years.

  • 67% of Liverpool's conceded league goals so far this season have occurred in the first half (therefore, 33% of Liverpool's conceded goals this season have occurred in the second half).
  • 51% of Liverpool's scored league goals so far this season have been scored in the second half (as a consequence, 49% of Liverpool's goals this season have been scored in the first half).

The same pattern emerges when looking at away games specifically:

  • 62% of Liverpool's conceded league goals on the road this season have occurred in the first half (inevitably, 38% of Liverpool's conceded away goals have occurred in the second half).
  • 62% of Liverpool's scored league goals on the road this season have been scored in the second half (ergo, 38% of Liverpool's away goals have been scored in the first half).
