Yen drew 16 more fouls than Mir.
Mir fouled his opponents 61 times, to YEN’s 28.
Mir offside 37 times to YEN’s 25.
Yen had the ball tackled away 17 times compared to Mir’s 9.
Mir only 48.2% successful in the air compared to YEN’s 55.8.
The thing that concerns me for both players is their lack of individual shot creation meaning two or more of their actions created a shot. Mir only had 28 of these, YEN, 37. For comparison:
Suarez : 66
De Jong had 25 or 1.77 actions per 90 compared to YEN’s 1.44.
I know this goes more to Lopetegui’s system; however, I think you want your strikers to create more chances individually. Hopefully this stat improves for both this season.
