On Sunday 11 April, Tottenham Hotspur host Manchester United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. There's an interesting anomaly as to the when goals have been scored in Tottenham's and Manchester United's games so far in the Premier League this season.

Tottenham Hotspur

  • 57% of Tottenham's scored league goals so far this season have been scored in the first half (thus, 43% of Tottenham's goals this season have been scored in the second half).
  • 63% of Tottenham's conceded league goals so far this season have occurred in the second half (consequently, 37% of Tottenham's conceded goals this season have occurred in the first half).

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

  • 60% of Tottenham's scored league goals at home so far this season have been scored in the first half (as a result, 40% of Tottenham's goals at home this season have been scored in the second half).
  • 71% of Tottenham's conceded league goals at home so far this season have occurred in the second half (hence, 29% of Tottenham's conceded goals this season have occurred in the first half).

Manchester United

  • 56% of Manchester United's conceded league goals so far this season have occurred in the first half (therefore, 44% of Manchester United's conceded goals this season have occurred in the second half).
  • 59% of Manchester United's scored league goals so far this season have been scored in the second half (as a consequence, 41% of Manchester United's goals this season have been scored in the first half).

The same pattern emerges when looking at away games specifically:

  • 77% of Manchester United's conceded league goals on the road this season have occurred in the first half (inevitably, 23% of Manchester United's conceded away goals have occurred in the second half).
  • 63% of Manchester United's scored league goals on the road this season have been scored in the second half (ergo, 37% of Manchester United's away goals have been scored in the first half).
