The fact that there has already been one article on Just Arsenal today with a wildly different Premier League team of the season based on statistics shows you that as well as not telling the whole story, stats can show very different results depending on which ones you use.
But after the Sky Sports duo of Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher rammed their tongues firmly up the rear end of Jose Mourinho by selecting almost the whole Chelsea team in their picks, I think it is worth us looking at a more balanced view, as shown in a report by The Guardian. Their team is based on all the stats compiled over the season by whoscored.com and it looks like this.
Ivanovic, Smalling, Koscielny, Monreal
Alexis, Cazorla, Fabregas, Hazard
So Arsenal have the same number of players in it as Chelsea and if you think this is a bizarre anomaly due to the way their stats are compiled, consider also the fact that, statistically speaking, the Gunners were also the best team over the course of the season according to Squawka.com.
What Arsene Wenger needs to do now though, is to make sure that Arsenal win the Premier League trophy as well as the battle of the stats next season.
