Worst conversion rates in the Premier League this season

The worst conversion rates in the Premier League this season, a dishonourable list that no player wants to find themselves on.

Which players have been the most wayward with efforts on goal in 2023/24? It’s time to find out. Here are the Premier League players with the worst conversation rate from 30+ shots.

Bruno Fernandes – 6.1%

Bruno Fernandes has not quite been the goalscoring force of old this season, netting just three times for Manchester United.

Just eight players have fired more efforts on goal than the Portugal international this season, whose conversion rate of 6.1% places him among the lowest players in the division. However, each of Fernandes’ three goals have proven to be match-winners for Erik ten Hag’s team.

Gabriel Martinelli – 6.1%

Gabriel Martinelli produced the best football of his Arsenal career last season, scoring 15 league goals to end the campaign as the Gunners’ joint-leading scorer.

Martinelli matched Roberto Firmino’s Premier League record for the highest-scoring single season by a Brazilian player, though has struggled to recapture that form during the current campaign.

The 22-year-old has scored just twice in 18 league appearances.

Ross Barkley – 5.7%

Ross Barkley has become a huge fan favourite at Luton Town this season, with the midfielder enjoying a career renaissance in the unlikely surroundings of Kenilworth Road.

A free transfer recruit in the summer after underwhelming spells at Chelsea and Nice, Barkley’s form this season has led to calls for a potential England recall.

His shooting, however, needs improvement. Barkley has scored just two goals from 35 shots this season.

Morgan Gibbs-White – 5.3%

Morgan Gibbs-White is another who has failed to hit the heights of last season to date. The midfielder was crowned Nottingham Forest’s Player of the Season after helping lead the side to top-flight safety last term but has struggled to produce the same end product this time around.

Gibbs-White has a conversion rate of just 5.3%, scoring twice from 38 shots. The 23-year-old has shown signs of improvement under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo in recent weeks and scored a brilliant late winner against Manchester United last month.

Dominik Szoboszlai – 5.3%

Dominik Szoboszlai has posted an identical record to Gibbs-White this season, scoring twice for Liverpool from 38 shots.

The Hungarian’s willingness to let fly from a distance has resulted in some brilliant goals scored already this season, though is perhaps to the detriment of his conversion rate.

Pedro Porro – 0%

Pedro Porro is the only player in the Premier League to have fired 30+ shots at goal this season without scoring.

The Spaniard has been a key figure in a new-look Spurs side under Ange Postecoglou this season, offering adventurous attacking play from right-back.

Porro, who has seven Premier League assists, has fired 34 shots on goal without finding the net. The 23-year-old did open his goalscoring account for the campaign with a wonder goal in the FA Cup win over Burnley earlier this month, however, and will hope to break his league duck in the coming weeks.
