The Flourish visualisation can be controlled by the viewer.
The graphic uses a very basic momentum scoring system: +1 win, 0 draw, -1 defeat. These outcomes are regardless of the league position of the opposing team.
There is a gap in the data for Week 31 of the season. These games will be completed this week. (Two teams are hidden in the graphic: Leicester has the same momentum points as Everton; West Brom’s recent form has elevated them to match Swansea.)
Five of the bottom six teams in the EPL are teams that underwent managerial change in the season. One of them, Stoke, has been relegated.

Mara Averick kindly created a gif and mp4 for me on my last attempt to share a Flourish animated visualisation.
This time, I used:
- Gifox for a screen capture gif.
- Ezigif to create an mp4 file of the gif
- Zamar to convert the mp4 file into a .mov file for WordPress upload.
