EPL stats: Which clubs have scored the most freekick goals in 2022-23 Premier League season?

The start date of the new Premier League season is inching ever closer. Not even a month left before the upcoming campaign begins, as clubs are involved in pre-season preparations. On top of it, they are also exploring the ongoing summer transfer window to improve their respective squads. For some teams, it would be largely about maintaining what they achieved last season, while others will be keen to improve on it.

There were plenty of surprises all over the division during the 2022-23 Premier League season. Some clubs that were backed to do well had performed below expectations to finish in the bottom half or even be involved in relegation battle. On the other hand, there were some unexpected finishes at the top end of the table. Ahead of the new season, let us take a deep dive into one interesting stat from the last campaign.

Which club has scored the most freekick goals?

The club at the top of the list is relegated Southampton with three goals scored from freekicks. It was a largely disappointing campaign for the Saints, as they never really managed to gain any sort of momentum. In the end, they finished at the bottom of the league table after becoming the first team to get relegated during the 2022-23 EPL season.

There are quite a few clubs that have scored two goals from freekicks in the Premier League last term. Rejuvenated Aston Villa and Brentford are couple of those sides, alongside relegated former champions Leicester City. The defending champions Manchester City have also found the back of the net twice from freekicks. Even though Pep Guardiola’s side had to work extremely hard for the league title, in the end, it turned out to be a memorable campaign, as they completed a historic treble.

Chelsea, Liverpool have scored one goal each

Meanwhile, there are multiple teams that have scored a single goal from freekicks in the league last campaign. It includes misfiring Chelsea and Liverpool, as both sides missed out on Champions League football. Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United also have a place in this list. Read the table below to know more about the clubs that have scored the maximum number of freekick goals during the 2022-23 Premier League season.
