The dozen teams taking more shots than Liverpool…

Date published: Friday 6th March 2020 1:09

If you want games with shots on goal, tune in to Atalanta this season. Serie A’s emerging prospects have taken more shots per game than any other team in Europe’s top five leagues, and they’ve had more shots on target than any other side, too.

Surprisingly, there are 12 teams who have averaged more shots per game than Liverpool this season and there are ten who have hit the target more often per game. The obvious conclusion: Liverpool are sh*te.

Manchester City and Chelsea have both averaged more shots per game than Jurgen Klopp’s side but both have been less accurate in hitting the target.
