The game stats prove Arsenal’s total dominance against Stoke

WHAT THE STATS ARE SAYING FROM THE ARSENAL WIN OVER STOKE CITY.

As expected the Gunners were the winners over Stoke City to come within touching distance of Chelsea at the top of the table. Goals from Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi were all the hosts needed to complete a comeback win after Charlie Adams had given the visitors the lead.

The Stoke City midfield player converted from 12 yards to put smiles on the faces of the visiting fans and also a perfect birthday present for himself, as the midfield player turned 31 years old on match day, but the Gunners didn’t drop their heads but carried on playing with style. Following Arsenal’s win we take a look at what the statistics are saying as regards to Arsenal’s dominant performance against Stoke City.

TOTAL SHOTS
21 (Arsenal) (Stoke City) 12

SHOTS ON TARGET
The shots ratio was a massive indication as to where the pressure pendulum was swinging in the course of the game. With Arsenal’s fine play is hard not for the Gunners not to have created more chances and shots at goal than the visitors who needed some kind of decision to go there way as the center referee awarded the penalty for the first goal of the game after the Xhaka incident in the box.
SHOTS ON TARGET
6(Arsenal) (Stoke City) 5

SHOTS OFF TARGET
The home side had more shots off target as they bid to get back into the game following the 0-1 deficit in the 26th minute of the game. Whichever way the hosts plunged more balls into the Stoke City penalty area.

SHOTS BLOCKED
8 (Arsenal) (Stoke City) 2

BALL POSSESSION %
The Gunners were clearly the better side on the night against Stoke. The form and the quality of the attacking trio of Sanchez, Chamberlain and Walcott make it hard for opposing team to stand a chance as the Arsenal trio ran into channel with intensity, to open up play in the final third. Ozil’s presence along with Xhaka gave us a fair amount of midfield dominance and therefore superior possession.
BALL POSSESSION %
64%(Arsenal) (Stoke City) 36%

GOAL-KICK
The goal-kick nunmbers tend to indicate the pressure direction on the field of play. With Arsenal on the ascendance up the pitch they are of course expected to make some attempts and run at the Stoke’s goal. This have in turn produced a higher number of goal kicks as Arsenal’s superiority can be confirmed.
