im chelsea have ronaldo and cavani up front loads of shots on goal but hardly score can someone help?
You'd think "it will happen" if you give it time. Maybe you need to score some goals from different opportunities - I'd put some emphasis on set plays, try to get someone (Cavani?) in position to poach second-chance opportunities, seriously discourage long shots, and try to encourage players forward into the box so it's congested and unpredictable things will happen - you've clearly got the quality to capitalize on such things. Plus if you're buzzing around the box you'll earn free kicks and penalties, Ronaldo territory... In other words, don't be "too pretty". Usually, once you start scoring, if you have quality, it will just keep happening, even from the situations that didn't score before, as confidence grows, and you can ease back into your preferred style. Or maybe not :)

Is there any pattern to these shots "on target" but not scoring?
not really i generally dominate games i always use work ball into box i have a player with excellent set pieece stats, but struggle scoring some games. when i was a home to sunderland i had 15 shots on target they had 1 and i lost 0-1 lol
It may sound silly but have you swapped there sides, the amount of St i have had that cant score if they are on the left of the 2 up top is silly. Im currently playing as atl madrid and if i play with 2 up top we never seam to score as many, may be worth a go
i know have van persie as dlf and rooney as a p still having loads of shots on goal but scoring little
Maybe it is because of the morale. Tell them calmly before the match that there is no pressure and see how it goes
Also van persie is way too good to be a DLF try playing him as T or CF. same for rooney
