2-0 isn't a dangerous place to find yourself in,it's actually a very comfortable spot.
Below I've listed the chances of various teams converting just such a lead into three points and then I've charted real outcomes of three such games from the weekend round of Premiership matches.No prizes for guessing which game will live long in the memory and which one will be forgotten by next week.....although watching a pressing,long ball side (Stoke) totally frustrate and disrupt a short,possession based side (Swansea),did have it's attractions.26% of the possession equalling 100% of the points.
