Manchester City top the table for the percentage of total match minutes spent winning in the current Premier League season. Pep Guardiola’s side have continued to be an unstoppable force in the English top flight. Despite Arsenal staying at the summit for long this season, City never lost hope and kept pushing them hard from second place. Finally, they got their reward. With the Gunners losing their way big time in the business end of the campaign, Man City leapfrogged them into the top spot.
Percentage of total match minutes spent winning in the 2022-23 Premier League season
Manchester City have spent 52.3% of total match minutes winning in the ongoing Premier League campaign, according to Opta Analyst. It is an incredible ratio for any side to achieve. No wonder Guardiola’s boys have been nearly unstoppable in the division. If they continue to perform at this level then it is only a matter of time before they wrap up yet another league title. With only few games left to be played in this season, not many would bet against City to win the coveted EPL trophy.
Second in the table is Arsenal with 47.3% of total match minutes winning in the current Premier League season. Mikel Arteta’s side have surprised many this season by playing at such a high level on a consistent basis. The Gunners were leading the league table for very long this campaign. However, they hit a bad run of form during the crucial part of the season and have conceded their lead at the top to Manchester City. Even if they do not win the league title, Arsenal players can still be proud of what they have achieved this term.
Manchester United placed third, Liverpool seventh
The Red Devils have been in good form this season under Erik ten Hag’s management. After going through a disastrous campaign last time around, Manchester United have done well to already register more points than what they did throughout the whole of last season in the league. A lot of credit must be given to ten Hag for that, as he helped re-establish them as a force to be reckoned with. They are third in this table spending 37.9% of total match minutes winning in this Premier League season.
Meanwhile, Liverpool have had a below-par campaign till now. They were knocked out of all the cup competitions at an early stage and are languishing out of the top four places – not where they are usually seen in the standings. They are placed seventh in this table with 31.3% of total match minutes winning in this league season. Struggling Chelsea is way down in this list by just spending 21.5% of total match minutes winning.
