Chelsea Strikers In 2012/13: Per 90 Numbers

A few days ago I wrote this on the Top 45 Strikers In The PL. It shows some interesting comparisons between players at different clubs and players by age decline.

Anyway, here are Chelsea's 2012/13 Numbers. I included Lukaku for obvious reasons.

Team Age Player Goals p90 Assists p90 Shots p90 SoT p90 ToP% Scoring% Shot Acc% Off %
Chelsea 28 Torres 0.24 0.21 2.34 0.98 72 25 41.79 58.21
Chelsea 27 Ba 0.13 0.00 2.93 1.08 48.22 11.76 36.95 63.05
West Brom 19 Lukaku 0.67 0.18 4.31 1.98 56.1 34.09 45.83 54.17
League Ave 26.93
0.376 0.129 3.13 1.22 56.14 31.24 39.13 60.82


Age was determined by age on January 1st of the relevant season.

Torres Errr, Assists per 90 are pretty good and Torres's shot accuracy is slightly above league average but there is not much else here. Torres is a below average Premier League striker and he is 29 next season.

Ba This is Ba's 2012/13 Chelsea season. Another Chelsea striker who was below league average. A poor shooter by the accuracy %, his horrible Scoring% will surely rebound next year.

Lukaku Young strikers rarely play in the PL. That they are able to perform to Lukaku's level is extremely rare. Rooney, Ronaldo, Owen rare. Across the board Lukaku posts numbers well above league average. Shots on Target per 90, Goals per 90 and Shooting accuracy are his best numbers.

It is extremely rare a player posts these numbers before the age of 23. Lukaku did it at 19. Can he translate this form to Chelsea? He would be a good bet to do so.
