Although not in the relegation zone, it's fair to say that Swansea City are not yet firing on all cyllinders this season.

They lie 17th level on points with Everton and have won just two of their 10 games so far and, arguably, one of the main issues for Paul Clement has been scoring goals.


The Swans have only scored seven far, and an alarming statistic has arisen that pretty much explains it - they have only mustered 20 shots on target this season, as reported on Twitter by Andrew Beasley, which is the lowest in the league.

Embarrassingly, that collective total is actually less than stars Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah, who have each managed 21 individually.

Swansea aren't scoring because they aren't shooting and when they are shooting, they're not being clinical enough.

Youngster Tammy Abraham has hit four of their seven league goals so far this season and is doing his best in his first proper season as a Premier League striker, but he is evidently not getting the right support from his teammates - which could point towards possible January investment.

As collated by Squawka, Swansea have created 47 chances to date in the league, which equates to 4.7 chances per match which is not sparkling.

This would suggest that Clement's side are lacking a creative influence in the side to present chances in genuinely threatening areas, and it would appear the sale of Gylfi Sigurdsson is hitting them hard at present.
