|Chelsea's goal scoring problems examined
| sbobet online 24 Chelsea may have given themselves hope of salvaging a top-four finish but goal-scoring problems have hindered their season. We look at whether the issue lies with the strikers - or the supply… "Our top scorer has scored only 12 goals. And if your best scorer has scored only 12 goals it means it is very difficult to fight for something this season. This is the reality, the stats speak very well."
For Antonio Conte it is clear what Chelsea's major problem has been this season. He pointed the finger at his attackers after last week's narrow win at Swansea and while January signing Olivier Giroud made the difference against Liverpool on Sunday, Conte must surely have been looking on enviously at the visitors' front three.
They may have drawn a blank at Stamford Bridge, but Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have 56 Premier League goals between them this season. Chelsea's top three scorers - Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata and left-back Marcos Alonso - have a combined tally of just 29. That figure should be significantly higher. Chelsea are third bottom in the Premier League when it comes to the percentage of clear-cut chances they've put away this season, according to Opta. sbobet online 24
To underline that point: only Crystal Palace and Southampton have been more wasteful from chances where their players would be reasonably expected to score. In the player standings, Morata - out injured against Liverpool but likely to return against Huddersfield on Wednesday - has the worst big chance conversion rate among strikers to have scored at least 10 Premier League goals this season. sbobet online 24
