PLAYING OUT FROM THE BACK IS WORTH THE RISK
John Muller has done a research on his newsletter blog spacespacespaceletter.com (which I highly recommend). Long story short: he looked at the goal kicks stats over the last 5 Premier league seasons and found that short goal kicks led to better chance creation (best expected goals difference over the next four possessions). Now one might say that it is because "big" teams choose to play that way, having more quality players at their disposal and creating more chances in general. However research shows that even "smaller" teams, that usually play long goal kicks and sport a direct style of play, actually have more success when playing short.
