I'm really excited about today's post. Honestly, I think this is the prettiest visual I've done to date, so I really hope you enjoy it and learn something from the code.
For today's visual, I look at xG rolling figures, of the past three seasons, for the teams that finished in the top half of the table in the 2021/2022 Premier League season.

Barcelona Squad Table by Yayha Rashwan
Kudos to Yayha for his great use of the table's tutorial.
I love the font, background color, and most of all, his great use of the battery chart in the % of minutes played column.
Luton's touch map by @LutonAnalytics
This is an amazing visual.
Inspired by Jon Ollington's touch map viz, where players are positioned based on the line-up really gives the visual a beautiful and elegant touch.

I really love the way that he has grown in developing his style and matplotlib skills. Just look at this beauty 👇
