Top 10: Most wasteful Premier League strikers in 2013/14 (1)

Published 3 Comments

Jose Mourinho seized another opportunity to bemoan his lack of "real strikers" at Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea fell to a 3-1 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last night.

The Portuguese tactician ripped into his misfiring marksmen in the aftermath of their quarter final first leg loss, having overlooked Fernando Torres and Demba Ba in favour of playing wide-man Andre Schurrle through the middle as the focal point of the Blues attack.

Wednesday's selection at Parc des Princes only highlights how unhappy Mourinho is with the options currently available to him, which prompted the Bosman free acquisition of Samuel Eto'o back in August and will almost certainly force the 51-year-old into the transfer market again this summer, as he continues his search for reinforcements.

Despite Mourinho's continued criticism towards his strikers, none of Chelsea's current contingent feature among the most wasteful stars in England's top-flight this season.

Based on statistics provided by Opta and reported by talkSPORT, here's a look at the top 10 profligate Premier League strikers in 2013/14, based on the number of 'big chances' squandered.
