EPL stats: Which clubs have conceded the most goals from penalties in 2022-23 Premier League season?

It goes without saying that defenders must be extra careful in the box to not concede silly fouls, as they could risk giving away penalty kicks. While giving away a penalty does not necessarily guarantee a goal, however, it provides the opponent with an easy opportunity to score one. With only the goalkeeper to beat from the spot-kick, the penalty taker is often backed to get the job done. That too at the highest level, one mistake at the box could cost the defending team significantly.

With VAR being present in modern game, it is equally important for every side to be doubly careful in their penalty area. They might not get away with fouling an opponent when the referee is not watching them. Anything and everything that happens in the penalty box is closely followed by VAR – something every defender must be aware of. A clear and obvious error in the box will be immediately conveyed to the referee on the pitch, allowing him to either check the pitch-side monitor or go with the VAR decision.

Which club has conceded the most goals from penalties?

The club that has conceded the maximum number of goals from penalties during the 2022-23 Premier League season is Fulham. They have conceded seven such goals in the league last campaign. It is something every club would like to keep it on check, as the last thing they would like to do on a football pitch is to present an easy opportunity for the opponent to score a goal. Either way, Fulham did well to finish at a respectable tenth spot in the table last season.

There are multiple clubs sharing the second spot in this table. Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion and Nottingham Forest have all conceded six goals from the spot-kicks during the 2022-23 league season. Brighton still managed to have an impressive campaign by finishing in the sixth place to secure a Europa League ticket. However, the other two sides flirted with relegation at one point or another before guaranteeing their safety in the division.

Aston Villa are not far behind

Most of the sides who have conceded good number of goals from penalties had finished in mid-table or lower half positions of the league table. Aston Villa, however, is an exception after finishing seventh in the standings to secure the final European ticket last campaign. They had conceded five goals from spot-kicks.
