The 2022-23 Premier League season is done and dusted. There were several surprises on offer for supporters across the world. Teams that were anticipated to do well suffered disappointing campaigns, while some lesser-fancied teams had punched well above weights to finish higher up in the table. The battle for the top spot in the league table was equally intriguing and same was the case in the fight to finish in European places.
Which club has scored the most goals from outside the box?
The team at the top of this list is a surprising name in Newcastle United. The Magpies outperformed expectations to secure an unlikely Champions League ticket, something not many saw coming at the start of the season. Their solid defence laid the platform for Newcastle to consistently collect important points. In the end, the Magpies finished fourth to seal a ticket to Europe’s elite competition. Overall, Newcastle scored 14 goals from outside the box in the Premier League last season.
Second on the list is champions Manchester City, as they scored 13 times from outside the penalty box in the league last time out. It was not all easy for Pep Guardiola’s side since they were chasing Arsenal for large periods of the season. However, when it mattered the most, Mikel Arteta’s side collapsed, allowing City to leapfrog them for the coveted league trophy.
Third is relegated Leicester City. The Foxes endured a disastrous campaign, something many found difficult to understand considering the quality they possessed in their squad. Leicester were never really able to find any kind of momentum, as they kept staying in and around the bottom three places for most parts of the season before falling down to the second division. However, they had scored an impressive 11 goals from outside the box.
What about other notable clubs?
Tottenham Hotspur have found the back of the net 10 times from outside the penalty box, while their north London rivals Arsenal managed the same on nine occasions. Meanwhile, Liverpool scored eight goals from outside the box throughout the entire league campaign.
