Top 5: Most deadly Premier League teams (1)

Much has been made of Tottenham's travails in front of goal this season. 

The much-maligned north London side have managed just nine goals in 12 games, and none in their last three. All in all they've had 219 shots on goal - the highest figure in the Premier League. Luckily they didn't splash £26 million on a misfiring striker in the sumer...

What makes things worse for Andre Villas-Boas' side is that all around them, their rivals are banging in the goals for fun - or in Manchester City's case, directly against them.

Without wanting to rub salt in the wounds of Spurs fans, we thought it would be a good idea to look into the team that is firing on all cylinders, that can hit the back of the net, as opposed to one that, well, can't.

So what we've done is look at how many shots each team in the Premier League has taken to score a single goal, and also looked at their shots-on-target ratio.

We've then ranked the top five in both categories, put the scores together and hey presto, you've got the five most efficient, deadly, clinical - whatever you want to call them - team in the league.

Want to see who they are? We'll give you a clue, Tottenham aren't amongst them.....
