FotMob RatingThe FotMob player rating is calculated based on more than 300 individual stats per player per match from Opta. A match in the per match ratings is any match the participant has been involved in even if he came on as substitute in the last few minutes. A player must have played at least 50% of all matches and at least 90 minutes (for the per 90 stats) to be included in the rankings.
Expected Goals (xG)
Expected goals (or xG for short) is the likelihood that a shot will result in a goal. In other words, a measurement of how good the chance was.
A player or team's total xG in a match can give an indication of how many goals they could have expected to score, given the quality and quantity of the chances they created.
For each shot, an xG value from 0 to 1 is assigned, with a value of 1 representing a guaranteed goal. So, if a shot has an xG value of 0.4, that means you would expect a goal to be scored from that shot 4 out of 10 times. This is based on the shot angle, distance from goal, type of pass, header or shot, among other factors.
So, if a team loses 1-0, but they had an xG of 2.1, you can say they were unlucky to lose, as they could have been expected to score at least 2 goals from the chances they created.

Expected Goals On Target (xGOT)xGOT not only takes into account the quality of the chance, it also measures the quality of the shot. A value is assigned to the goalmouth location where the ball ended up, giving more credit to shots that end up in the corners compared with shots that go straight down the middle of the goal. This model is only for on-target shots given that if you don’t get your shot on target, there's a 0% chance that it will result in a goal. Essentially, xG is a pre-shot model while xGOT is a post-shot model. (Opta)
Expected Assists (xA)
Expected assists (or xA for short) is a measurement of the quality of the chance created by a player, based on the likelihood that a pass will become an assist.
This means that a pass that puts a forward through on goal will have a higher xA than a pass outside the 18-yard-box, even if both result in assists for the player.
It is important to note that the passing player still gets credit for the quality of their pass, whether or not the receiving player is able to convert it into a shot or goal. This means that it is not reliant on the finishing ability of the receiving player, but solely the quality of the pass provided.

Big ChanceOpta: A situation where a player should reasonably be expected to score, usually in a one on one scenario or from very close range when the ball has a clear path to goal and there is low to moderate pressure on the shooter. Penalties are always considered big chances.
Chance createdThe final pass leading to the recipient having an attempt at goal.
DuelOpta: A duel is an 1v1 contest between two players of opposing sides in the match. For every Duel Won there is a corresponding Duel Lost depending on the outcome of the contest.
DribbleOpta: This is an attempt by a player to beat an opponent when they have possession of the ball. A successful dribble means the player beats the defender while retaining possession, unsuccessful ones are where the dribbler is tackled.
Goals PreventedCalculated as xGOT conceded from shots on target faced, minus goals conceded. So it’s a number that shows how many goals the keeper would have expected to concede vs how many he actually conceded.
InterceptionOpta: This is where a player reads an opponent’s pass and intercepts the ball by moving into the line of the intended pass.
RecoveryOpta: This is where a player recovers the ball in a situation where neither team has possession or where the ball has been played directly to him by an opponent, thus securing possession for their team.
