*Big chances are shots from close distance and one-v-one’s (or open goal shots) with the keeper. For example, Aguero’s goal today was a Big Chance as were both Arsenal goals since they were shots taken from such close range.
**Expected goals are simply a measure of where a shot was taken and then using averages from years of data assigning a number to the shot. For shots outside the 18 yard box I assign a 0.03, inside the 18 yard box 0.1, inside the 6 yard box 0.25, and for Big Chances a 0.4. Big chances are only counted once (a big chance in the 6 yard box is 0.4 not 0.65). This formula is very accurate.
