In comparison: Chicarito vs Carroll

West Ham are currently favourites to sign Bayer Leverkusen forward Javier Chicharito Hernandez.

So we thought we'd ask our friends at kickoff.co.uk to provide some statistical analysis comparing the records of Hernandez, 29, with current Hammers striker Andy Carroll, a year younger at 28.



As you can see from the 'Head to Head' graphic above, Hernandez averaged a goal every 165 minutes in the Bundesliga compared to Carroll's goal every 188 minutes in the Premier League - but did so over 1,815 minutes (just over 30 hours) in contrast to Carroll's 1,314 minutes (approximately 22 hours) of game time.

Interestingly, both fared better away from home, scoring the majority of their league goals on the road (7/11 for Hernandez, 5/7 for Carroll) - although the Mexican proved far more adept at using both feet when facing the target.




Even though he has the edge statistically over Carroll, Hernandez enjoyed a far less profitable 2016/17 season than the previous campaign, in which he scored 17 goals for Leverkusen whilst chipping in with a couple of assists (see above).




However his value to the team is perhaps best indicated by Leverkusen's record with and without him in the side.

As you can see from our final graphic (above) Bayer won three times as many games in 2016/17 when Hernandez was included in the team, scoring an average of 1.7 goals per game with Chicarito - compared to 1 without him (and conceding fewer goals overall).
