Without victory in the Premier League for more than a month, Arsenal, still beaten in Leicester Saturday (2-0), displays defensive statistics for the least disturbing.
It does not turn any better at Arsenal. Logically beaten in Leicester on Saturday (2-0), the Gunners, looking for a victory in the Premier League for more than a month, recorded a fifth straight match without a win on the lawn of King Power Stadium. This places Unai Emery in a situation that is, to say the least, uncomfortable.
A new setback that leaves them eight lengths from Manchester City, but with one more match, and therefore the fourth and last qualifying place for the Champions League. All is obviously not lost after 12 days, but catching up with such a gap could prove impossible. Especially by continuing to play this way.
Only two promoted make worse
Saturday, the North-Londoners once again exposed their limits of the moment and still conceded many shots (19 including 7 squared), while they have framed only once (out of 8 attempts). Since the beginning of the season, only two teams have conceded more shots than them. And it is about two promoted …
Thus, Arsenal (197 shots conceded) is only ahead of the rankings of this unenviable statistic by Aston Villa (213) and Norwich (208), respectively 17th and 20th in the Premier League. And the only club in the Top 8 to show a negative goal difference (-1) also has in its ranks the goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, to have made the most stops (49). Worrying, no?
