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

The 2022-23 Premier League season has been another exciting campaign with plenty of action-packed moments filling the memories of the supporters. There were a lot of edge-of-the-seat thrillers, with supporters nervously waiting till the final whistle to figure out the winner. With goals galore, there have been several twists and turns, making it hard to predict a winner. The season might be over but some of the memories will live long in the minds of the supporters. Let us look at one such notable statistic from the recently-concluded campaign.

Which club has scored the most penalties?

The team at the top of this list is champions Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side had converted nine penalties over the course of the 2022-23 Premier League season. City had another brilliant campaign under Guardiola, as they ended the term with a historic treble. However, it was not always easy, especially in the English top flight.

For most parts of the Premier League season, Arsenal were leading the table. Man City were chasing them from the second spot. At one point, the Gunners took a healthy lead, which convinced many that Mikel Arteta’s side could even go all the way. However, a massive collapse at the business end of the campaign saw Arsenal surrender the top spot to City. The patience and perseverance finally paid off for Guardiola’s boys.

Second in the list is Brentford with seven penalties being scored in the league last season. Brentford’s impressive campaign saw them finish in the top half of the table, something not many saw coming. Third position is shared between Brighton & Hove Albion, Newcastle United and West Ham United. All three have scored six penalties each. Brighton and Newcastle punched well above their weights to finish in European places, while West Ham narrowly survived relegation battle.

Which are the other notable clubs?

Clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are among other clubs that share the eight spot. They all have converted three penalties each in the league last campaign. It is a surprise to see these clubs scoring very few goals from the penalty spot over the entire league term.
