Stoke top set piece goal percentage

Stoke City have scored the highest percentage of goals from set pieces so far in the Premier League this season.

The Potters have scored a massive 58% of their goal from throw in`s, corners and free kicks.

Stoke are renowned for their set piece specialities and aerial superiority, and with the recent stats that have been published, it looks like the training has paid off.

Tony Pulis` men have scored 27% of their goals from corners alone, one of which came in their last game, a 2-1 victory over Reading, where Robert Huth towered above everyone to crash home a header.

With that goal, the German centre half took his tally to 13 goals for Stoke since August 2009, which puts him in an impressive 2nd place for the most goals by a defender. He is only bettered by Leighton Baines` 15 goals, but the left back is a set piece specialist and takes Everton`s free kicks and penalties.
