Hi everyone!

Welcome to the 21st 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 give a special welcome to the 6 new subscribers that joined this week. 🤍

For this week's visual, I took inspiration from Shreyas' probability distribution plots and added a funky Halloween theme to meet the occasion.

Look closely at Haaland's, Trossard's, and Almiron's numbers, they're just insane.

According to Opta's model, the three of them had a 90% chance of scoring fewer goals than what they actually did – in Haaland's case that figure is a staggering 99%.

Are the EPL's top scorers getting lucky?
