To comprehensively measure the effect of football team cooperation, this paper established a football team performance evaluation model and takes the performance of Everton F.C. in 2017 to 2018 season as an example. We selected 12 indicators from three aspects and use hierarchical clustering to divide the performance into four levels: very successful, relatively successful, unsuccessful and very failed. Then, we evaluated the performance of the team’s changes and focus on the opponent’s strategy indicators to analyze its impact. It is found that the reason for most of the failed games is that the team is affected by the away effect, the intra-team cooperation is not dominant and the opponent’s ability is strong, resulting in low CPI scores. At the end of the season, the influence of the opponent strategy on team performance becomes stronger and stronger.
