Teams are significantly more likely to be awarded a penalty in a home game than they are in an away one.

Home teams won a whopping 58% of all penalties awarded in Premier League matches over the last four seasons.

A total of 322 spot kicks have been taken since the start of the 2012-13 campaign with 188 going to home sides and 134 to away sides.

West Ham have been less fortunate at getting penalties in away games than any other side.

The Hammers have been awarded nine penalties over the last four seasons, all of which were in home games.

Manchester City have the next biggest difference with 20 of their 26 penalties over the last four seasons (77%) being awarded at the Etihad as opposed to on the road.

Chelsea have had 76% of their 25 penalties (19) awarded at home as opposed to on the road.

The other traditional “big four” sides haven’t experienced as big a difference though.

Manchester United have had 20 penalties over the last four seasons, 10 were awarded at Old Trafford while 10 weren’t.

Arsenal have had 18 penalties with nine coming in games at the Emirates and nine coming elsewhere.

Only four of the division’s ever-presents over the last four seasons have had more penalties awarded on their travels than they have at home.

Just 28% (five) of Stoke’s spot kicks have been at their Britannia Stadium.

Only 36% of Southampton’s penalties were awarded at St Mary’s, while 45% of Swansea’s and 46% of Liverpool’s were given at their respective grounds.
