The sides in the English top tier with the best possession stats on their home turf.
Keeping the ball in football is a sure way to stop the other team scoring and recent Pep Guardiola sides – Barcelona and Bayern Munich – use it to devastating effect.
More and more sides are leaning towards the continental style of short passing and working the ball into the box, particularly when they are at home.

Jose Mourinho is famed for having a great home record, with the 1-2 defeat to FC Basel earlier this campaign the only time in nearly four years (over two spells) that the 51-year-old has lost at Stamford Bridge.
This is clearly largely to do with the fact that the Blues do not give the ball away easily when in west London and still look like the most likely candidates to lift the trophy come the end of the season.
