As the Premier League pauses for the FIFA World Cup 2022, we are looking at some of the numbers behind the season so far.

Hitting the woodwork

A bit of bad fortune? Or poor finishing? Either way some teams will bemoan their luck and think they would be higher up the table had they not hit the woodwork so much in 2022/23.

Newcastle United lead the way in this area, having found the upright 11 times so far this season.

Liverpool are one further back, having hit the frame of the goal 10 times in 2022/23.

Of these, four have come via shots by striker Darwin Nunez, who is the player who leads the way.
