This week we’ve got a bonus special episode on … football! Alongside pensions, investment and other areas LCP has a team that specialises in football analytics (yes really!).

In this episode Ashley Mould and Bart Huby explain how their systems use data from thousands of events across dozens of leagues to form a model of each player’s impact on a game and how this can be used by scouts and managers. We discuss what the data has to say about World Cup teams and the decisions facing England manager Gareth Southgate. We reflect on analytics in sport generally and what this might mean in the future.
