some stats on this season for you...
This season the reigning champions have compiled an astonishing 317 shots at goal in the Premier League that dwarfs Liverpool’s 154. But while Salah and co have a clinical 39% success ratio from their tally City’s languishes at nearly half that on 20.5%.
17/18 highest conversion rate in league
18/19 3rd highest conversion rate in league
19/20 11th highest conversion rate in league
What date was on OD's post?
our chance conversion rate is pretty much exactly the same as over the past 3 seasons:
2017/18 - 20.8%
2018/19 - 19.4%
2019/20 - 20.4%

not good enough now. not good enough then. for a team of our quality. liverpool proving that point now with a near 40% conversion rate.
waiting eagerly for you and spazby to respond.
Can’t argue with that.
This season isn't the same as the previous two seasons though - and any statistic that suggests a parity to those seasons should instantly raise questions. (If we're converting at the same rate this season, then it suggests we're not creating the same amount of chances to win matches this season compared to the previous two).
