How are Villarreal’s goalscorers doing?

As you may remember from the earlier entry post about it, we talked how much a goal was worth. After eight jornadas (and seven matches played by Villarreal), we can start to see some of the results.

Villarreal has scored a total of eight goals, four of which have the name of Danjuma, With that, he manages to get the most points for a Villarreal player and landing near the top 15 (a 0,04 difference with the 15th player, which can count as a virtual tie). The 0,72 he gets for each goal shows how important is for a Villarreal which their personal Gval sits at 0,75. Close to it is Trigueros with a phenomenal 1,90 from two goals. Yeremy Pino and Alberto Moreno closes our list of scorers with 0,95 and 0,29 respectively. Overall, this results are a bit lower because of all the matches where you have gained points but nobody scored, which just puts the team on a more defensive scale when talking from where are we getting the points. Getting more goals, without sacrificing the defensive, is the subject pending for Emery.

The top 10 shows players from the three teams leading the standings, with Oyarzabal as current leader thanks to his six goals, three of them to put a 1-goal lead for Real. That’s similar to the reason for Correa scoring three goals and being second. His three goals have been 1-goal leading for an Atleti side that has not found their defensive game so much compared to other seasons. Benzema closes third while being the top scorer of the league. His main drawback for this standings are the both games against Celta and Valencia. Real Madrid scored three goals or more, but was also scored and had to make a comeback. The Rayo Vallecano are having a good start of the season, and thus include two players, one of whom is none other than their big signing Falcao. As maybe a surprise for some is De Tomás representing Espanyol, but if you look at their start, scoring for them while getting points can net you a good amount for each goal

And because, not everything are goals, in the assists department, Yeremy Pino leads with three done, which adds a total attacking input (goals+assists) of 3,79, which are more points than Danjuma with his goals. For something he’s our wonderkid.
