Assessing the offensive and defensive efficiency of English premier league teams by data envelopment analysis
AUTHOR(S): Zahoor ul Haq Bhat and Dr. DD Sultana
In this paper we use a linear programming based Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) methodology to evaluate the offensive and defensive efficiency of football teams in English Premier League (EPL) over a period of five years from 2012 to 2016. There is high level of inefficiency in EPL in the analyzed seasons. Many clubs could be efficient in one season but stop being efficient in other seasons. As a result the teams have many problems maintaining their efficiency during the seasons. It can be concluded from the analysis that offence is more dominating than defense in EPL. Moreover, to avoid being relegated defense should be more a priority for the teams. The study can help coaches, trainers and managers assess their team’s performance and plan accordingly in future.
