Attack Activity and Quality

Attack Activity and Quality chart

There isn’t much movement here. The big six are still comfortably clear of the rest. West Ham is the next best attack outside the big six but their defense is bad enough that they are firmly midtable. Next after West Ham, however, is Claude Puel’s Southampton. Coming off a throttling of the defending champions Leicester, the Saints are looking quite strong.

Defensive Activity and Quality chart

Defensively, Swansea has improved slightly coming off their 3-2 win against Liverpool. As Swansea continues to move closer to West Ham, Bournemouth, and Palace expect to see their position in the table rise. For now, I’m standing by what I said last week: Out of Swansea, Sunderland, Hull, and Palace, I think Swansea has the most obvious path to survival.
