Arsenal’s most important players this season, according to points won

The performance of individual players plays a crucial role in the success of a team in any competition, prompting clubs to scout for talent during the summer transfer window to strengthen their squads.

While a football team consists of 11 players on the pitch at a time, not all players have the same impact. In the previous campaign, Arsenal came close to winning the league, and a significant factor behind their success was the outstanding form of their star players.

The Daily Mail, citing Opta, has revealed the players whose goals contributed the most points to their respective clubs during the 2022/2023 season. Remarkably, three Arsenal players made the list.

Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli both scored 15 goals for the club, while Bukayo Saka netted 14 goals of his own. These contributions were vital to Arsenal’s success, and according to the report, each of the three players secured 8 points for the team through their goals.

To put it into perspective, if the goals scored by Odegaard and Saka were removed, Arsenal would have had 16 points less than their current total, underscoring the significance of their contributions to the team’s performance.

This number shows we did not rely on one player to save us always, but it also shows why we need a prolific striker like Erling Haaland to make us better.

If we had a goal machine in this team and these players scored these goals as well, we might have ended as champions.

  1. The scouting should be done not just in the summer but a protracted period of time leading up into the summer.
    But recent reports of Arsenal scouts spotted in the south with Manuel Ugarte is a good indication we have got our ducks in a row.

    The ideas of Arsenal getting a phenomenal striker though is a great idea it can be a double head sword, we have to be careful as it could eat up all the goals from Saka and others, we see what happens at the Citizens when Haaland came in.

    A phenomenal striker like Oshien’s or Vlohovic coming in cannot be bench so a careful and meticulous planning has to be done as he’s integrate into the startingteam, but once plan and execute properly there is no doubt we could use one to devastating effect.

  2. How many points did haaland ‘win’ with his goals? I’d imagine a lot less than you’d think.
    Anyway, it’s a nonsense analysis. It’s a team game – if we had a weaker goalkeeper for some games we might have scored fewer goals.
