In all, Hearts played 34 matches, winning 17, drawing 10 and losing seven. 12 of the seventeen wins came at the Accra Sports Stadium with 5 being on the road.

Hearts of Oak lost only one game at home with the other seven being away games. The drawn games stand at four at home and six on the road.

In summary Hearts of Oak garnered 64 points to win the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League title.

The Phobians scored 45 goals in total with 34 at the Accra Sports Stadium and 11 during matches away from home.

They conceded 23 goals with 14 coming when they travelled and 11 being at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Their biggest win of the season was the 6-1 mauling of Bechem United at the Accra Sports Stadium while their worst defeat was 2-0 losses for Great Olympics, Aduana Stars and Dreams FC respectively.
