Spurs 4th most shots per game, 3rd best shot ratio

Shots from open play per 90 minutes vs shots against per 90 minutes to give a plus or minus figure. You'll note from the previous article that Tottenham sit top of the league for shots on target and that Liverpool sit 19th despite having the second highest number of shots per game.

Spurs 1st, Liverpool 19th, Chelsea 20th

The figures from the two articles tell us who is accurate when shooting and who isn't, no wonder Liverpool have offered us Benteke and no wonder I believe he is a one trick pony not good enough for us.

You would think that Chelsea being the Premier League champions and the worst shooting team in the league this season have been missing the target deliberately to get rid of a manager the players had decided they no longer wanted. They got rid of Andre Villas-Boas because they didn't want him and had John Terry doing team talks instead of Avram Grant.

Players have too much power these days and Abramovich has shown he will back the players over the manager. Daniel Levy has shown he will back Mauricio Pochettino over the players, hence certain players being banned from the first team and having to train with the youth players.
