Football is not about just playing in one way, and it is always a mix of short passing, through balls and long balls too, but teams that predominantly depend on long balls more or less end up chasing balls.

Here are five Premier League teams who had the least long balls per game.

Pep Guardiola's side registered 48 long balls per game and it is no wonder they are at the top of the list for short passes per game by a long distance.

Chelsea scraped through the second half of the season and managed to finish in third place in the Premier League, but they did that with a game of mostly short passes, considering they only had 46 long balls per game and making them the team that used that method of passing the least times.

Bournemouth did not have the greatest seasons in terms of league position, having only managed to finish 14th in the Premier League, but they did get into the top five of teams that have used the least long balls per game, with Bournemouth registering 52.

Manchester City won the Premier League title for the second season in a row, but only finished second in the list of teams that had the least long balls per game.

The Gunners have an average of 55 long balls per game in the league season, while they had the fifth highest in terms of short passes per game.
