The missing piece - Throw-ins

In football, set-piece scenarios are often considered as threatening and given considerable time towards mastering in the hope of positive outcomes. However, one piece teams often under value are throw-ins, particularly when they occur in the final third of the pitch. For example, from a total of 2351 only 54 were score, making it only a 2.3% conversion rate throughout the FA WSL. When we convert that to a team based summary (Table 1), we find that only Arsenal converted more than 5% of their throws in the final third in to goals.
