The Enlightened Era (2009 - 2015): Scoring%, Save% & PDO

Another Interactive chart that shows Scoring% (goals for/shots on target for) and Save% (100- goals against/shots on target against)

We see a group of bubbles clustered around the top right of the chart (good scoring% & save%). Those bubbles in the sweet spot of this chart are more or less made up of just 3 teams: Man City, Man United & Chelsea. Are the 'Big 3' consistently lucky? Or do these 3 clubs have such superior talent on their squads that are consistently able to post both high scoring and save percentages?

In a league without a salary cap and a wide spread of budgets it is likely that we see some form of talent skew throughout the table.
