We are entering a critical period. A host of Arsenal players are on international duty and when they return they will have ten matches between them and Champions League football.

Beating Aston Villa last time out kept the Gunners in a strong position to do so, with three and four points separating them from Tottenham and Manchester United respectively, two teams with whom they are one game less.

Mikel Arteta pleads for patience and refuses to be carried away by the idea of ​​Arsenal achieving their last remaining goal of the season, in what will be a very nervous final stretch of the campaign.

But what about the less serious ones?

Arsenal: The 4 most bizarre and interesting stats of the Premier League season so far for Mikel Arteta’s Gunners side

Some interesting statistics have emerged over the last 28 games, some flattering for Arsenal and some less favorable. For example, they remain the only side not to concede from a corner kick this season, but have embarked on their worst top-flight start to the season in 67 years. Swings and rides.

Here we’ll take a look at the most peculiar stats that have emerged from the season so far, some that are interesting, and one in particular that is downright crazy.

Arsenal have made the most errors leading to a shot – 12

This Arsenal team is receiving a lot of praise from all walks of life, some of which is centered on their defensive solidity. Recording 13 clean sheets in 28 appearances this season puts them third in this particular table, while improvements in form off the ball have also been highlighted.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean they’re perfectly clean on the ball, with Mikel Arteta’s side registering the most errors leading to a shot from the opposition.

Their tally of 12 is in stark contrast to the team at the right end of this list, with Tottenham making just two errors leading to shots all season.

Looking at the Gunners’ defeats, you can pick out a few moments from the only Anfield and Etihad thrashings that will make up the bulk of their 12, because with the impressive form they’ve been in lately, they’ve been really neatly arranged. in this department.

The statistics are improving, however. Much better, in fact.
