Jose Mourinho needs to find a solution as to why his team is not scoring enough goals despite taking too many shots on goal. Manchester United is 8th on the table with 17 points, 17 goals scored and 17 goals conceded. This is despite his players attempting 133 shots in 10 matches so far this season.
5. Everton- 137 Shots
Is it time to get Siggy with it?
I have Richarlison but really considering the swap.

Everton almost grabbed a point at Old Trafford last weekend against Manchester United. The Toffees went 2-0 down early in the second half but they fought hard to score late in the game. Marco Silva will be disappointed that his team has only scored 16 goals out of 137 shots on goal attempted so far in 10 matches. The Merseyside Blues are currently 9th on the table with 15 points.
4. Liverpool- 145 Shots
Sadio Mane's brace against Cardiff means he is now up to 5️⃣0️⃣ Premier League goals. 👏

Liverpool is level on points with defending Champions Manchester City but Pep Guardiola side has more goals. The Reds have attempted 145 shots on goal but only converted 20 of them. The good news is that they have only conceded 4 goals so far. For them to avoid a 2012 scenario of goals deciding the title destination Jurgen Klopp side must start scoring more goals. Wolves have also attempted 145 shots scoring only 9 times.
