Tottenham vs Man United, Premier League 2018-19

Some games are so legendary sports fans wish to relive them for years to come. "Tottenham vs Man United, Premier League 2018-19," allows soccer fans to do just that, with a statistical twist. The data visualization project memorializes the January 13, 2019 game between Tottenham and Manchester United soccer clubs with an in-depth analysis of each team's plays, shot attempts, and goals, broken down in timed increments. Shots are color-coded by team, and readers can hover over a shot to reveal additional details (including the "expected goal value" calculated using a variety of shot quality indicators). Readers can enjoy an automated "walkthrough" of the data by scrolling down the page or can choose to explore freely by skipping to the Explore Yourself option at the bottom of the page. Amsterdam-based engineer and designer Vignesh Shenoy created the piece for his blog Shape of the Game, "a collection of data-driven, interactive explorations." As of this write-up, only one other post is featured on his site, "Kohli's path to 10,000 ODI runs, charted," which dissects the cricketer's impressive career.
