Don’t really get this. The numbers you’re saying are about the same (OP shots, xG) are up ~50% from where they were previously. This doesn’t look like someone off his best to me. This looks like someone who has changed his focus (possibly because of the Jesus injury, but who knows?).

So shots and xG up some, key passes and xA down. Similar amounts and for me that is within range of what you would expect looking at a small sample to say not a major departure from previous.

I agree it does perhaps look like there might be a change of focus, without Jesus maybe he is putting more on himself to take on a scoring burden.
