Arsenal score ONE out of every ten shots!

As long as I keep shooting, one is bound to go in.” – Alberto Gilardinho.

The Italian striker’s philosophy that the more shots you take, the more goals you will score. Not quite, Alberto.

Fantasy football game www.oulala.com have released the shots to goals ratios of every Premier League club so far this season.

Leading the way are Leicester City who have been the most efficient team in front of goal thanks to the exceptional form of attacking duo Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.

Vardy’s 12 goals have come from 48 shots giving the 28-year-old a conversion rate of 25 per cent. While Mahrez has enjoyed a conversion rate of 21 per cent, scoring seven goals from 34 shots.

Oulala’s stats show that the Foxes boast an overall shot conversion rate of 14.3 per cent, scoring 25 goals from 175 shots. Just 0.1 per cent behind Leicester are West Ham with a shot conversion of 14.2 per cent.

Manchester City and Arsenal have had the most shots in the Premier League this season with 221 attempts each. However the pair can only manage fifth and tenth in the table with 11.8 and 10 per cent respectively.
Conversion-Rate---infographic
Newcastle have attempted the fewest shots this season with 116. They sit in sixth place after netting 13 goals, a shot conversion rate of 11.2 per cent.

The most wasteful club has been Liverpool. The Reds have scored just 13 goals from 184 shots, a conversion rate of just 7.1 per cent.

Liverpool’s shot conversion rate was 4.8 per cent in their opening eight games under Brendan Rodgers scoring just three goals from 62 shots. The Reds efficiency has improved significantly under new manager Jürgen Klopp thanks to 10 goals from 122 shots. Their conversion rate has risen to 8.2 per cent in their last four games.

Giroud – 36 shots, 6 goals = 17%
Walcott – 26 shots, 2 goals = 8%

    2. SoOpa AeoN says:

      arsenal gotta be the most fearful of teams in terms of shot taking!……….. Seriously who takes the most shot in our team currently?

      1. Tas says:

        i think its Rambo when his playing and Flamini given the game time

        1. GoonerLad says:

          Rambo scores when he plays in the centre though, on the right his job is to link the holding mids with the attacking mids. One of the main reasons Bayern overran our midfield when we lost

    And Girould misses at least 6 of those ten shots per game… Just kidding but you know what I mean.

    Really wish Santi could get back his scoring form in that new role his playing, its been a while since we last saw the Carzola special long range shot! Ozil should pick up some goals too. He shoots less but when he does he either scores or hits the target which should motivate him.

    Sadly our right wing has probably scored the least goals, even our defense has scored more. Creating chances has not been a problem especially with brilliant Bellarine running the show there, just wish the attacker deployed there can add goals too. Cant wait for Welbz to get back and see what role he will take up in our new 11.

    1. admin says:

      Actually the stats for our two strikers are:
      Giroud – 36 shots, 6 goals = 17%
      Walcott – 26 shots, 2 goals = 8%

  3. Jim A says:

    Shot conversion is such a non stat. If you are forcing a keeper to make saves you are putting pressure on the other team but most importantly the keeper who you are facing will get weary from handling so many shots. I’d rather have 15 shots in a game and convert 1 than 2 shots and convert 1.

  4. Gigi2 says:

    It’s a world Stat. The more you try even if you Re not good the more chances will be converted.
    Maybe different proportions depending on how good u r but still the same principle.

  5. Khontoll Ngaceng says:

    I think this news will increase our shot ratio then:
    Ox is 80-90% as of three days ago. Return imminent.
    Walcott set to return by end of November.
    Wilshere is “pencilled in” to come back ahead of Christmas.
    Welbeck uncertain.

    Cheers.

    1. Twig says:

      This is already end of November :/

    2. GoonerLad says:

      Lol Wilshere shouldn’t even be mentioned. Arsene should save him for February when our players will be tired

    3. leoaw says:

      Oh my god. Your user name man….. 🙂

  6. ALANI says:

    I’d vote keep shooting. We’d probably have lesser goals if we dont shoot that much.

  7. Twig says:

    “The most wasteful club has been Liverpool”

    That’s probably due to Coutinho. He tries a lot of speculative shots (I wish Santi still does that) and he has been rewarded by a number of memorable goals.

  8. Should get danger. Money sitting behind the goal then.
