Coventry City are sitting comfortably in the mid-table. They have scored 49 goals until this point in the season. Leading the way for Coventry City is Swedish striker, Viktor Gyokores. He has netted 13 goals so far this season. He has already equalled his career-best season after he scored 13 goals for Brommapojkarna in the 2017 second tier of Swedish club football.
Viktor Gyokores has scored 13 goals at a rate of a respectable 0.38 goals per 90. This ranks him in the top quintile of this category. He has slightly underperformed on his xG of 0.39 for goals per 90. He has taken three shots per game. Around 45% of his shots have been on target this season. He also touches the ball in the opposition’s penalty area five times a game. Dribbling is another strong attribute that Gyokores has at his disposal, as he has attempted 6.61 dribbles per 90, completing 68% of them.
Two out of Gyokores’ 13 goals this season have come from outside the box. The above shot map shows that Gyokores has missed several big chances to score goals this season, as seen by the big red and orange circles. He should have had at least 17-18 goals by now instead of just 13. Gyokores has taken 107 shots this season, which means that Gyokores is shooting just over eight times for every goal he has netted.
Seen in the above visual is the pass sonar, threat map, and xT timeline of Viktor Gyokores. As seen in the xT timeline, Gyokores is mostly quiet in various stages of the match. But he did produce threats at times during games this season, most notably in the third quarter of the game, just after the start of the second half, and in the last 15 minutes of a match. Most of his threat has come in the final third and in and around the opponents’ penalty area. As seen on the left of the visual, most of his threatening passes have been sideways. It may be due to him laying up goal-scoring opportunities for his Coventry teammates.
Viktor Gyokores, along with his strike partner Matt Godden, has propelled Coventry City to the top half of the table, but they would have been higher had Gyokores not missed a few sitters. If Coventry are to finish the season strong, then the strikers should be more clinical in front of the goal.
