There’s a new giant in English football, apparently…
Premier League champions Manchester City and title-leaders Chelsea have been beaten to the status as the most dangerous team in English football by, wait for it… League One outfit Brentford!
Brentford obliterated Blackpool in a 4-0 rout, yet it hasn’t been the scoreline that has grabbed the headlines, but their whopping 42 attempts on goal.
In stats by Opta, the Bees’ 42 attempts is 10 more than any other team in the Championship has managed over the last two seasons, and even more impressively, is the highest number recorded by any team in the top two divisions in England.
Arsenal and Man City sit behind with 32 as their respective most shots in a fixture stat.
