Premier League top for goals per game
The recently published Price of Football survey might have raised questions about value for money in the British game, but in terms of goals per match it seems fans of Premier League sides really are getting the best value this season.
There have been a total of 89 matches played so far in the top tier, and 250 goals have been scored.That means 2.81 goals per match, the best average in the top four divisions.
More goals have been scored in League Two than in any other, 428, but with 155 matches played, that works out at 2.76 goals per fixture.
League One fixtures have yielded 2.58 goals per match and in the Championship, that figure is 2.52 goals per game.
The debate as to which is the best league in Europe rages on in many quarters, but on goals-per-game the Premier League narrowly tops both La Liga in Spain and the German Bundesliga which averaged 2.48 and 2.802 goals per fixture respectively.
