Arsenal has had an underwhelming term and is currently 9th in the league but there have still been some symbols of inspiration. Premier League fans can book Southampton Vs Arsenal Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
The Gunners have made a talented start to life under Mikel Arteta, while a few players have been creating inspiring displays for much of the tournament. With the league suspended at 29 games, we’ve looked at Arsenal’s best performers in different key areas.
It should be noted that a player has to have made at least four Premier League appearances this season to be included. All stats given are their average per 90 minutes.
Pepe – 3.7
2. Joe Willock – 2.6
3. Reiss Nelson – 2.3
Unsurprisingly, Pepe leads the way for successful dribbles per 90 minutes in the Arsenal squad, although the winger only completes 56.9% of his overall dribbles.
The Gunners have talent coming through too, with Willock and Nelson second and third behind Pepe in terms of completed take-on.
Ozil – 2.3
2. Nicolas Pepe – 1.9
3. Joe Willock – 1.5
Ozil has been criticised for his performances this season, but the German has still created more chances than any other Arsenal player in the Premier League this season with 2.3 per 90.
As well as being the most prolific dribbler, the stats show that Pepe is also one of Arsenal’s most creative players. His 1.9 key passes per ninety have led to 6 assists in the Premier League – no Arsenal player has provided more this term.
Lacazette – 2.7
2. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 2.5
3. Nicolas Pepe – 2.5
Lacazette may be working hard for goals so far this season, but it’s not for an absence of trying with an average of 2.7 shots per ninety minutes in the Premier League. Aubameyang is currently Arsenal’s top goalscorer, with 17 league goals from 2.5 shots per 90 minutes, while Pepe is in the top three once again.
Willock – 2.8
2. Gabriel Martinelli – 2.7
2. Dani Ceballos – 2.7
Despite being a striker, Martinelli isn’t afraid to get involved in the other side of the game, with Willock the only Arsenal player to complete more tackles per 90 minutes. Premier League fans can book Arsenal Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
Torreira – 2.0
2. Shkodran Mustafi – 1.9
3. Ainsley Maitland-Niles – 1.9
Arteta has been dealt a blow with the news that Torreira is set to miss the rest of the season (well, depending on when it finishes) due to an ankle injury.
Aerial duels won
Mustafi – 5.4
2. Sokratis – 3.1
3. Calum Chambers – 3.0
Mustafi has often been a scapegoat at Arsenal, but the defender has shown signs of turning a corner under Mikel Arteta. The German has won significantly more aerial duels than any other Arsenal player in the Premier League this season, with 5.4 per 90.
Mustafi – 7.1
2. David Luiz – 4.1
3. Sokratis – 3.6
As well as leading the way in aerial duels, Mustafi also makes 7.1 clearances per 90 minutes in the Premier League, 3.0 more than second-placed David Luiz.
