    From the first game of GameDay 19, we have Fulham v Wolves. Our own Callum Chambers started I believe.

    At 34m, Seiss (Saiss?) of Wolves needs a treatment, I am going to suspect Chambers was the Fulham player.

    At 44m (10m later), there appears to be some handbags between Chambers and Seiss, both get yellows.

    My Stats (possible) Outliers at end of GameDay 18

    Referee: Martin Atkinson leads on most treatments “managed”, most minutes of time teams had to play short-handed due to treatments, and number of substitutions needed by teams because of treatments.

    Caution: Liverpool is definitely an outlier, with a Caution of 532 man-minutes as compared to 2nd, 3rd and 4th places of Newcastle (801), Man$ity (805) and Wolves (805). ManU is a possible outlier at the other end at 1538 man-minutes. Brighton and Arsenal are at 1416 and 1406 respectively. Huddersfield close at 1387. We then have a gap of 100 to where the “pack” is.

    Treatment: Watford has only needed 6 treatments, resulting in them having to play short handed for 14 minutes and not needing to use any substitutes. Cardiff is at the other end having needed treatment 31 times and having to play short-handed for 63 minutes. They have needed substitutions 8 times from treatments. Brighton is close to that in terms of short-handed minutes AND substitutions.

    Inverse Treatments: Leicester is possibly an outlier in only having inflicted treatment 9 times, causing opposition to play short handed for 14 minutes (lowest) and only required 1 substitution (joint lowest). The Spuds have inflicted the most treatments on opposition at 23. CPalace and StateAid have inflicted the most minutes of short-handed play at 56 and 55 respectively. Interestingly Burnley at the Leicester end of things, is at 46 minutes short-handed. Spuds are tied with a bunch of teams on most substitutions from treatments at 7.

    I’ll go for the last one of those above two starts i.e.
    4-3-1-2 formation Arsenal starts for Brighton.

    Starts:
    Lichtsteiner Koscielny Sokratis Kolasinac;
    Xhaka Torreira Guendouzi;
    Ozil;
    Lacazette Aubameyang.

    Bench:
    Cech Jenkinson Medley Elneny Ramsey Iwobi Nkethia.

    This is the Arsenal killer beast match starts and bench on the day halfway into this season’s campaign in the PL that will swallow up Brighton in the game. But if Emery accepted to go along with us to have the above 18 as his match day squad for the match. And adopt our starting XI to start the match with my bench adopted also by him for the match if possible.

    I believe the above 4-3-1-2 formation Arsenal starts and the 7 man Gunners that I have on the bench can beat Brighton 0-4 @FT + the added time in today’s Christmas Boxing Day match taking place at the Amex Stadium between Brighton and Arsenal this evening.

    Approaching half time in the Spuds game. There has only been 2 fouls in the game, both to Bournemouth. There has been one treatment, inflicted by the Spuds. No cards. Chris Kavanagh is the referee.

    Fishy, fishy.

    Caution data. Liverpool is about 2.6 standard deviations off the median (1110 man-minutes). That’s an awfully big gap to 2nd at 801 man-minutes.

    The numbers for our game. Brighton and Arsenal almost the same on man-minutes of Caution, are tied on treatments required, and almost tied on treatments inflicted (I think 3 of our “inflictions” were in fact self-inflicted, so we would be tied on inflictions as well).

    COYG!

    Early second half in the Spuds game. Foul count now reads none by the Spuds and 3 to Bournemouth. The third foul resulted in a yellow to Bournemouth. One minute before that, the player that the Spuds inflicted a treatment on, they inflicted another treatment on the same player. Manager was forced to substitute him.

    Kicked him off the park, and not even a foul.

    Arsenal.com now in game mode, lineups to be announced very soon.

    COYG!

    From LiveScore:

    Leno
    Lightsteiner Sokratis Koscielny Kolasinac
    Torreira Xhaka Guendouzi
    Ozil
    PEA Lacazette

    Beach: Cech Elneny Ramsey Maitland-Niles Iobi Nketiah Willock

    Which looks like the second lineup to me.

    COYG!

    Now 70 minutes into Spuds game, and they have still not committed any fouls. Still just the 2 treatments to Bournemouth players.

    How does the dirtiest team in the league (inflicting 23 treatments on opposition before this game and 2 during this game), getting 29 minutes of game time when their opposition is playing short-handed, and having forced opposition into 7 substitutions by inflicting those treatments) manage to play 73 minutes of a game before the referee notices a foul?
