Ranking the Roma squad by their win percentages from games they started in 2021-22

The 2021-22 season was a successful one for Roma, who ended it by winning a trophy – but which of their players enjoyed the best win percentages?

In total, Roma played 55 matches across all competitions in the 2021-22 campaign, winning 29 of them. In other words, Jose Mourinho’s win percentage from his first season in charge of the club stood at 52.7% (to the nearest decimal).

But which of his players proved to be the luckiest charms? Here is a run-down of the win percentages of every member of the squad to have started five games or more across the season. Only the games they started in count.

In instances where two players are tied on the same percentage, the one who started the greater number of games ranks higher.

Roma win percentages in 2021-22

=1. Perez – 62.5%

=1. Shomurodov – 62.5%

3. Calafiori – 60%

4. Mkhitaryan – 57.5%

5. Kumbulla – 57.1%

6. Zalewski – 57.1%

7. Karsdorp – 55.6%

8. Mancini – 54.3%

9. Pellegrini – 54.1%

10. Abraham – 53.1%

11. Cristante – 52.5%

12. Patricio – 51.9%

13. Veretout – 51.4%

14. Zaniolo – 50%

15. Smalling – 50%

16. Vina – 50%

17. Oliveira – 50%

18. Ibanez – 48.9%

19. El Shaarawy – 46.2%

20. Afena-Gyan – 42.9%

21. Maitland-Niles – 40%

So there you have it. Carles Perez and Eldor Shomurodov, who started eight games each and won five of them apiece, were the Roma players who enjoyed the greatest proportion of wins from their starts in 2021-22. Perhaps their higher success rates were a side-effect of being fringe players who would have been more likely to start in games of lower magnitude.

The player with the highest win percentage from those to reach double figures of starts was Henrikh Mkhitaryan; the lowest in that regard was the man at the bottom of the list anyway, Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Ten players – up to and including Tammy Abraham – had a better win ratio than the club itself from their starts.

And in case you were wondering, for the sake of completeness, here are the win percentages of those with fewer than five starts: Bove – 100%; Fuzato – 100%; Mayoral – 66.7%; Diawara – 50%; Darboe – 50%; Spinazzola – 50%; Villar – 50%; Reynolds – 0%.

Let’s hope the whole squad can enjoy even more success in the upcoming campaign.
