Tottenham Hotspur are officially the least clinical team in the Premier League, boasting the worst conversion rate of chances created to goals scored in England's top-flight this season, reports the Daily Mail.

The summer sale of Gareth Bale was always going to hit Andre Villas-Boas's side hard, but after the Portuguese boss reinvested ALL of the £85.3million received from Real Madrid for the Welshman's services, he must be left scratching his head as to why his current crop of players remain so shy in front of goal.

£26million summer signing Roberto Soldado started the 2013/14 campaign in impressive form, with four goals in his first three Spurs appearances. But, with just two in his last 11 games, the north London club appear to be struggling to make their high proportion of chances count.

Even more worryingly, excluding penalties, Tottenham have failed to score with ANY of their last 78 shots in the Premier League.

With that paltry conversion rate, pre-season talk of challenging for the Premier League title this year has been put on hold, at least until they can find their goalscoring touch again, as Villas-Boas's side currently reside in a disappointing ninth place in the table, eight points adrift of leaders Arsenal, prior to this weekend's round of fixtures, which sees them take on reigning champions Manchester United at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
