Is Arsenal’s new set-piece efficiency the secret weapon that will win us the title?

If there is one tactical mastery that will or may propel Arsenal to a Premier League triumph, it is their ability to comfortably score from corners.

Arsenal leads the Premier League in goals from corners, accounting for 13 of all the 70 goals they’ve scored (out of 18 set-piece goals in total). In contrast our opponents next week, Man City, have only managed 11 set-piece goals in this campaign.

Our Arsenal, who are now leading the Premier League title race with 64 points after 28 match days, could only be there due to their efficiency in front of goal, with goals from corners key.

Mikel Arteta is truly unique. The Arsenal manager’s brilliant technical bench (having a great set-piece coach like Nicolas Jover, whom he signed from Manchester City) and his attention to detail are obvious in the team’s ability to efficiently exploit set-piece situations, converting corners into crucial goal-scoring chances.

As Arsenal prepares to meet Manchester City in a “Premier League Final” at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, March 31, 2024, their mastery of corners could be a weapon against their league title rivals.

With the demands on the Gunners to stay at the top after making it there, this newfound secret weapon from set pieces could help them keep their competitive edge and pursue silverware in the seasons to come. The inverted fullback role was a hit for the Gunners last season; this season, they’ve added capitalizing on corners as a key tactic.

So what could be the next game-changing tactic? We will have to wait and see.

So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

Life is good for us Arsenal fans right now

  1. I don’t think set pieces will deliver the title, but they’ll go along way in aiding the course. We’ve done well so far especially Rice with those monster deliveries to the box. Low block teams have been undone by set pieces, I still think we can do better with penetration and improve in weeding out those sloppy passes and reckless give away of posetion.

  2. It’s commendable how our set pieces have gone from being useless and pathetic in the near past to one of our weapons now.

  3. A not so secret weapon now you have told Man City because they wouldn’t have known otherwise. 😄😉

  4. Our recruitment of taller players in the likes of Kiwior, Rice and Havertz has added more impact in set pieces and duel winning abilities. Gone are the days more physical teams out-muscle our team.
