It is getting increasingly difficult to try and rate a team's attacking performance based on their statistics. But we can get an idea of how a team plays if we bring context to those stats. Mostly, this is done by looking at the sheer number of goals they have scored and comparing them with another team. That is what we will be doing in this article.
Here are the Premier League's best attacking teams;
5. West Ham United - 14 goals.
David Moyes has completely turned the club around as he made sure they secured European football as well as making them. Extremely clinical and dangerous on the counter attack. In part, Michail Antonio and Said Benhrama have been key to this. But it is also due to excellent coaching and positioning
4. Manchester City - 14 goals.
You would not have expected to see a team managed by Pep Guardiola not to top a list like this. But Premier League clubs are extremely hard to break down which is why Manchester City have often struggled to break down teams so far this season. They have played against Liverpool and Chelsea but their loss came against Tottenham Hotspur who did not have Harry Kane in the squad.
3. Manchester United - 14 goals.
Manchester United finished last season as the team with the second most goals in the league. While they have had some very poor performances, they have managed to pull through and remain 2 points just off the top of the league.
2. Chelsea - 15 goals.
Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea have managed to acquire a reputation for being an inherently defensive side. While this is partly true, their mentality entirely depends on the opposition. They can be attacking and defensive depending on the opposition they face. But 15 goals scored in 7 games clearly indicates that they are not as defensive as many people claim.
1. Liverpool - 17 goals.
Liverpool lost Virgil Van Djik last season due to a long term injury so they could not be as attacking as they wanted. With the centre back fit, Jurgen Klopp is once again free to play his heavy metal football and we are already seeing the results of that.
