Arsenal’s struggles laid bare in these statistics

Arsenal is struggling this season and it is not for the lack of effort from our players as some stats have revealed.

The Gunners were beaten 2-0 by Tottenham at the weekend to prove that we’re in a full-blown crisis mode at the moment.

The team had gone through a lot of pain to sign the likes of Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes in the last transfer window.

If we hadn’t made any signings, fans would have understood because of the coronavirus pandemic, but we did and we all expected things to be different. 

However, this season has turned out to be worse than we expected it to be.

The Gunners have been doing their best in this campaign, but they have simply been wasteful.

Mail Online revealed some stats behind their season and you would be shocked by their wastefulness.

Arsenal has 13 points from 11 league games, with six losses from those matches as well.

Arsenal made 32 crosses against Tottenham and scored no goals, they had made 33 against Wolves and still lost the match.

The Gunners have the third-highest number of crosses in the Premier League this season, yet they have 10 league goals and they scored just one goal after making 65 crosses in their last two league games.

Arsenal’s 10 league goals this season is only a better stat than that of Burnley, West Brom and Sheffield United.

We have created only 9.5 shots per game this season, which is the joint-fourth lowest in the league. We have also made just 3.1 shots per game this season.

But, to his credit, Arteta has helped improved Arsenal’s passing as we have completed 85 percent of our passes accurately.

    85% pass accuracy is due to passing the ball backwards all the time. Loads of crosses is great if you have a striker who is prolific at scoring with his head. Auba has only scored 4 with his head since joining us.

      I believe our passing stat is important though….but one of the things arteta needs to learn as a coach cannot be taught….he will have to learn on the job.
      And that is one of the most difficult thing for coaches which is to allow players have attacking freedom amidst defensive solidity concerns.

    Difference between a top club and a mid table club. Zizu’s job is in the line today if they go out of champions League he will be sacked although he won more trophies for them in given time period then any manger ever has. On the other hand we are in relegation zone almost and Arteta has just only won one single FA cup but board and fans want to keep him, wonder why we are not one of elites club of Europe. If Arteta would win same trophies n bug ones as Zizu did for Madrid then our boards and fans would not sack him for next 20 years even though we would be playing in championship, going by how they are holding onto him with just an FA cup win.

      Ok Do you mean he should have been sacked or he should be sacked soon?

    I’ve been supporting Arsenal for 40 years this is the worst team ever considering how much it cost and wages…
    Arsenal need to recruit people like t Adams . Arsene Wenger bring this legends back to run our club

      Tony Adams was the manager of Portsmouth at some point, it didn’t turn out well for him and after that I cant seem to remember him occupying any managerial role or any other very important role at any other club.
      it goes to show that the fact that a player was very good during his playing days doesn’t mean he will become a good manager or director as the case may be.
