PICTURE: Who has best shooting accuracy? Not RvP, not SAS

Charlie Adam 2

The most accurate striker of the football is not a forward, nor is he at the 'elite' clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester United

With 11 match-days of the Premier League underway in the 2013-14 campaign, the Premier League have circulated an infographic detailing some of the star attacking players from this season.

However, while players like Sergio Aguero and Liverpool pair Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez have eye-catching statistics of eight goal hauls each (with the latter the sole player to have returned a hat-trick to date) and are perhaps obvious inclusions there is one surprising name…

…and that name is Charlie Adam who, after one year at Liverpool, transferred to Stoke City in a £4m deal in August last year and has established himself as the leading candidate for striking accuracy.

The Premier League only used data where the athlete had unleashed at least ten shots and, of them all, it was Adam who's efforts hit the target most often, with two resulting in goals while the rest were saves.
