Everybody has heard that Arsenal are having some very big issues in defence, whether it is because of their current injury crisis or even due to their player’s mentality of always trying to go on the attack, but some released statistics are sure to force the club to find a fix very swiftly.
The Gunner’s defence has been struggling as of late and to prove this point, they have gone a goal down in seven out of 15 of their matches from their opponent’s first shot on target.
This means a that 46% of the time, Arsene Wenger’s back line is completely fast asleep when their opponents take a shot, causing them to instantly lose a goal.
Surely this is a wake up call to sign some quality centre-backs…Mats Hummels? Raphael Varane? Winston Reid??
