15th place highlights a crucial area Spurs must improve

To continue our look into Tottenham and how we have fared in certain facets of the game I have next taken a look at passing into the box until the halfway stage of the season. To score goals a team needs to shoot from as close as possible to maximise their scoring probability. 

There is a correlation between range of shot and goals scored. The table shows in percentage terms the success ratio of teams passing into the box. It should be remembered when viewing these figures that a pass into the box does not necessarily mean a strike at goal. Our figures are terrible, way below the league average.

Passing into the box success
  • Manchester City 39.4%
  • Chelsea 38.1%
  • Arsenal 37.4%
  • Bournemouth 35.6%
  • Norwich City 33.1%
  • Crystal Palace 32.3%
  • Liverpool 32%
  • Everton 31.9%
  • League Average 31.2%
  • Southampton 31.1%
  • Leicester City 29.9%
  • Manchester United 29.9%
  • Stoke City 29.6%
  • WBA 29.3%
  • West Ham United 27.5%
  • Tottenham Hotspur 26.2%
  • Watford 25.6%
  • Swansea City 25%
  • Newcastle United 24.8%
  • Sunderland 22%
  • Aston Villa 20.5%

The second table shows the opposition success rate playing the ball into the box. Do we fare any better?
