An in-depth look at the EPL table: Toughest Fixtures and Europa League Notes

The Toughest Fixtures

Per a request here is a table based on what the toughest fixture is. APfF stands for Average Points from Fixture. Thus at Chelsea's APfF of 0.14 means that on average teams this year get 0.14 points from that fixture. Unfortunately for Spurs they have 2 of the top 3 toughest fixtures remaining on the schedule in the form of at Chelsea and at Liverpool.. But Spurs also have 2 of the 5 easiest fixtures left in the form of playing Cardiff City at home and home to Fulham. Also it should be noted despite a bad loss at Norwich yesterday, Spurs are still the toughest team to play at home this season just slightly above Arsenal. As one can see though our home form this year has been mid-table (tied for 7th with Manchester United and Stoke City). So without further ado here is the fixture table:

Notes on Europa League impact on Sunday fixtures:

Spurs have played 9 games after a Thursday night Europa game. based on updated numbers from the fanpost I posted last week, Spurs should have gained 12.66 points from those 9 fixtures. Spurs have under-performed and only gained 10 points from those 9 fixtures. It should be noted that this is a very small sample size and last year we where 5-1-4 after Europa League games last year. But, I think it is fair to say that Europa League has had a negative impact on our league performance in those 9 games.

That being said I want us to go all in on the Europa League. I want silverware.
