We already knew that Arsenal have a squad full of good attacking and creative players. The wealth of forwards available to Arsene Wenger now all our injury problems are on the wane was highlighted this month, as the Frenchman has allowed three strikers in Joel Campbell, Yaya Sanogo and Lukas Podolski to leave the club on loan.
But it is not just our forward players who are a danger to opposing defences, as this stats report by Metro shows. In fact, it shows that nobody can match the Gunners when it comes to scoring options this season, as we have seen more of our players hitting the back of the net than any of our Premier League rivals, as well as the really big guns around Europe.
When Theo Walcott scored in the second minute of the FA cup game at Brighton on Sunday, he became the 18th Arsenal star to register on the score sheet this season and that took Arsenal one player above the mighty Barcelona, with Real Madrid and Bayern Munich further behind with 16 and 11. Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool are the closest EPL clubs to us with 16 each and this does also show that it is a good sign of a strong squad.
Of course we can only have 11 players on the pitch at any time but it is good to know that almost any of them are capable of popping up with a goal and maybe that is taking the pressure off our specialist strikers. Some Gunners who have not scored yet are Coquelin, Flamini, Bellerin and Monreal, so do you think we could soon see number 19 for Arsenal players?
