Irons stats present why Moyes could have gone for Aguerd

David Moyes’ resolution to signal Rennes defender Nayef Aguerd seems to be based mostly on some weird stats from final season which clearly have an Angelo  Ogbonna involvement BEYOND the central defender’s age.

It’s been stated pretty commonly that the club significantly missed the Italian’s left sided recreation though few had been left complaining in regards to the signing of proper sided Kurt Zouma.

Nonetheless, the stats seem to point out simply how badly the squad missed Angelo after he broke down towards Liverpool on the London Stadium.

His defensive talents plus his energy in getting issues began down the left facet earlier than being injured towards Liverpool had seen the facet helped to a begin of seven wins, three attracts and simply two Premier League defeats over these 12 video games – a complete of 24 factors. Throughout that point we conceded 13 objectives and scored 24.

Following his disappearance we gained 9, drew six and misplaced 11 which noticed us concede half a dozen extra objectives or so than we scored suggesting that Oggy’s absence could nicely have price us a Euro League and even Champions League place subsequent season.

So the signing of a left sided central defender makes good sense at first look – whether or not Nayef is one other Oggy stays to be seen.
