33% shooting accuracy: Clinton N’Jie is lively but wasteful for Tottenham

The forward was a constant nuisance to the Liverpool team throughout the game on Saturday.

While Son Heung-min has hit the ground running at Tottenham since his move this summer, fellow recruit Clinton N’Jie has had to content himself with appearances from the bench.

He started the game against Liverpool on the bench on Saturday, but was called upon early on as winger Nacer Chadli was forced off with an injury.

It was a lively performance from the forward as well, as he was a constant threat to the Liverpool defence throughout.

We decided to take a look at his stats to see how he performed.

First and foremost, when it came to shooting, N’Jie was busy as he had three shots in total throughout the game, although his accuracy was missing as he managed just one on target.

However, his three penalty area entries clearly demonstrate the nuisance he caused to the Reds defence.

When it comes to dribbling, he had a better day than with his shooting as he enjoyed a 50% success rate in this area.

In fact, his touch throughout the game was seriously impressive as he had 52 in total throughout his 79 minutes on the pitch, and enjoyed a 96% success rate in that area.

So then, a lively performance from N’Jie, who Spurs will hope can start converting some of his chances into goals as Harry Kane continues to struggle.
