Stat shows Arsenal are in a world of their own after draw at Man City

Arsenal is now in a world of their own when it comes to Premier League clean sheets following their goalless draw at Manchester City today.

Mikel Arteta’s side has been praised for scoring goals for fun, especially away from home since the start of 2024, but their defensive achievements have hardly been talked about.

Today, more people will begin to pay attention to how they perform at the back following a masterclass from their defenders.

Premier League Productions reveals their clean sheet against City was the 12th they have kept in 29 league games this season.

No other team has kept more, and it makes them the king of clean sheets in the English top flight this term.

Arsenal now has a completely solid team, as they have also outscored others in the league with 70 goals.

But their defence could be the key to their success this term, and it will be interesting to see how many more clean sheets they can keep.

Just Arsenal Opinion

This stat is remarkable and shows how much work Mikel Arteta has done at this club.

The defenders who started the game for us all debuted under the Spanish gaffer and he signed three of them.

We expect more clean sheets and it could be the difference between success and failure for us this term.

  1. Raya, Gabriel, saliba and rice has been fantastic for us this season and not to forget the unsong hero kiwior he’s been great since the start of the year for us
    When was the last time an arsenal keeper win the golden glove not sure if we won it in the 2010s talk less of the 20s just rooting for raya for that award.

  2. Timber will add to the defence. Partey was a good sub for the tiring midfield legs of Jorginho in the second half to keep the momentum going. Havertz was a little more withdrawn into midfield for my liking, but perhaps the game dictated that.

  3. I think we have all the ingredients for a title win next season.

    Next season will be better for us.

    1. I agree.We have all the ingredients to win it next season-for the second time in a row.Now we just need to focus on winning it this season.

      1. Onyango…nice reply…finally someone seeing the importance of certain stats…do you know that the winners of the last 6 seasons ALL has the least goals conceded and best xga? At some point…this will prove itself this season

  4. Why are you talking of next season JL when we are very much in the title mix this season? We have a good a chance as anyone else to win it now.
    After that battling defensive display against City yesterday, I am convinced more than ever that Arsenal will win something big this season.
    Clean sheets win competitions

  5. Great statistic for Arsenal. A good attack wins games but a good defence wins titles. If and when we win the title this season, our defence will be the key to our success. Not only have Saliba and Gabriel been phenomenal this season, Rice and Jorginho have been also great in shielding the defence. Also, our press has been important in keeping these clean sheets.

  6. I am impressed by the entire team performance this time around particularly the defence and the midfield, I believe this season Arsenal will not finish empty handed.

  7. I’ve been an arsenal supporter since 04/05 season (the immediate season after the invicibles) and this is the first time I’ve felt absolutely confident about winning something. There’s something special about this current team and to think that it can only get better with the players returning from injury. I’ll put my head on the guillotine and say 24/25 season could just well be another invisible season.

  8. “Trust the process”!!

    Wasn’t easy taking the plight at the start!! We are all happy now the process is proving great!!

      What choice did he have ! NONE!

      And somefans , me very much included, always had patience and also preached it to others!

  9. I would like to see Jesus scored goals, that what he,s paid for, it’s time for him to come to come to scoring habits
