Newcastle United's alarming shots-per-goal ratio compared to Aston Villa, West Brom and Premier League rivals
Newcastle United host Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday in desperate need of three points – meaning they can’t afford to be wasteful in front of goal.

We divided the number of shots each club has registered in the league by the number of goals they have scored so far this season.
And it’s safe to say – it’s not great viewing for Newcastle:
