My table heavily leans on the fantastic {gt} and {gtExtras} packages and was inspired by several of Tom Mock's blog posts showing examples of how to properly display visual information in tabular format. While my personal philosophy is simple is better, I'll admit I tried to use as many functions and features of the aforementioned packages as possible in this contest. The table includes the following fields:

  • Rank
  • Team/logo
  • Points (as of Matchweek 9 of the current English Premier League season)
  • Traditional goals stats: Goals Scored, Goals Conceded, Goal Differential
  • Advanced goals stats: Expected Goals Scored (xGS), Expected Goals Conceded (xGC), Expected Goal Differential (xGD)
  • Form (outcomes of each match so far in terms of wins, draws, and losses)
  • Points Percentage
  • Wins/Draws/Losses

This table looks great! Far better than most I usually see in apps I use to check football statistics. Bravo! I will definitely check this out to learn some things from the great work you did and probably try to highlight Manchester United.
