Tottenham have been as good as Barcelona according to this stat

After comfortably beating Manchester United 3-0 at White Heart Lane, Tottenham are still contending for their first Premier League title since 1961.

The Spurs went crazy and scored all three goals in a span of just six minutes, with Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld, and Erik Lamela hitting the net.

Consequently, Tottenham have both the best offence and the best defence, scoring 60 goals while conceding just 25 after 33 matches, and being Leicester City’s only remaining rival for the title.

No wonder the Spurs are the only very accurate shooting team in Europe, as Mauricio Pochettino’s men are ranked third in the five biggest European competitions (England, Italy, Spain, Germany, France), with 6.8 shots on target per game. A number as good as La Liga giants FC Barcelona.

Nobody has been able to stop Bayern Munich, as the Bundesliga champions are leading this stat with 7.9 shots on target per game. Real Madrid are a close second with an average of 7.7 shots on target.

Ligue 1 champions PSG fill out the top five, while Borussia Dortmund, Napoli, Stuttgart, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Wolfsburg fill out the top ten.

Arsenal and Manchester City are ranked 11th and 12th, both registering 5.6 shots on target per game. Liverpool are the only other Premier League club in the top 20, sitting in 17th with an average of 5.1 shots on target.
