Welcome to the 24th issue of the Viz of the Week newsletter, where I'll be featuring a new visual each week and sharing the code behind it.
I want to wish you all the best for 2023. May it be filled with happiness for all of you. 🤍

I wanted to start the year strong, so this week we'll be looking at crossing attempts for all teams in the Premier League for the 2022/2023 season.
Also, as a special gift, I've provided a CSV of event data for all matches played in the Premier League. More so, I'm also looking to make available up-to-date datasets for all English leagues (EPL, Championship, and League One) for Friends of the Corner members – I'll send an email to paid members once I've figured out the best way to do this.
Here's this week's visual.
I found it amazing that West Ham was the team with the most crosses this season, yet they haven't generated a single goal from these situations. On the other end, Palace have attempted only 122 crosses so far (less than West Ham have attempted solely from the left and right-hand side of the pitch); however, they've created four goals from these attempts.
I hope you enjoyed today's post. As always, you're welcome to take a look at my code and reproduce the visual.
