A piece in the Guardian by Zonal Marking's Michael Cox caused a little bit of a kerfuffle this weekend.

In it, he argued that Tottenham's goal drought wasn't down to a lack of creativity per-se, but that but that they were struggling to create the right kind of chances for Roberto Soldado to tuck away.

That got us thinking, and a little bit of research revealed quite a lot.

Spurs for example, were indeed peppering their opponents goal with shots, but evidently are failing to find the back of the net, while Manchester City have no less than 28 goals this term with far less shots.

That hints at two things; that Manchester City's attacking unit is firing and Tottenham's isn't.

But does that mean that, statistically speaking, the Citizens have the most deadly attacking unit in the Premier League?

We've looked at shots on goal and compared that to how many goals each of the big boys have scored to find out exactly which team is performing at it's optimum.
