Premier League worst finisher stats spell bad news for Manchester City

Manchester City Etihad

New ESPN produced statistics make worrying reading for Manchester City fans, with two Blues ranked as the worst finishers in the Premier League last term.

In Fabian Delph, Manchester City have recruited one of the most wasteful players in the Premier League last season.

That is according to new figures produced by ESPN which revealed that the former Aston Villa midfielder failed to score a single goal for the Claret and Blues last season.

Delph managed a total of 39 shots in the Premier League for the Villans last term, but failed to find the target with any of these efforts and was left “boasting” a goals to shot ratio of zero per cent.

If that wasn't bad enough for Manchester City fans, then the news that he is joined by Jesus Navas with a zero per cent goals to shot ratio is likely to only heighten any concerns Sky Blues fans may have about the season ahead.

The misfiring Spaniard managed 33 shots on goal without finding the net in the Premier League last term, and has been linked with a move away from the Etihad this summer.

Former City star Mario Balotelli was next in line, with the Italian scoring one goal from 35 shots in the English top-flight last term.

With a shots to goals ratio of 2.78 per cent, however, he was still ahead of the City pairings.

The study only featured players who managed 30 or more shots on goal (excluding blocked efforts) over the course of a full season, with the likes of Angel Di Maria and Chelsea's Willian among the top 10.
