The numbers behind Arsenal’s win reveal that the gunners still have ground to gain


Data behind Arsenal's narrow win reveals gunners still have room to grow

Gunners finally fire the mark with a narrow win

Arsenal fans can breathe a sigh of relief this afternoon after the Gunners finally broke their duck and landed their first three-point shot of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign with a Narrow 1-0 win against Norwich in the Emirates. A clean sheet was a sight for sore eyes this afternoon, with league rookies Takehiro Tomiyasu and Aaron Ramsdale playing a key role in the result.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shot home from close range midway through the second frame, giving Arsenal a well-deserved one-to-zero lead that would stand the test of time to offer temporary respite from their current table position. The victory now sees them come out of the basement and climb to 16th place, depending on how Leeds United and Burnley hold up in their matchups to close out the weekend’s schedule.

The data behind the result showed dominating performance in many respects. Arsenal recorded thirty total shots against Canarias with an xG of 2.69, but only managed to test Tim Krul six times, while the bulk of the Gunners xG came from a couple of opportunities in quick succession through Nicolas Pépé (0.56 ) and the aforementioned Aubameyang (0.67), which caused the Gabonese hitman to open his 2021-22 scoring account.

Arsenal also continues to rely too heavily on wide playing areas, despite the fact that Martin Ødegaard (who was excellent on the day) will be included in Matchday XI for Arteta. Both Pépé and star Bukayo Saka led the afternoon’s creative show, with the tandem creating a combined 10 chances (Pépé 6, Saka 4) and recording 12 shots between themselves (6 each). Despite its effectiveness, better defensive teams will be able to cope with Arteta’s insistence on channeling the source of most of his team’s creativity from wide channels.

But the struggle to find more than just a single goal despite the number of opportunities created will still leave some fans frustrated with the club’s inability to polish their opponent, a notion that has so often come back to bite them in past matches. Things are still far from perfect with Arteta, but three points is a long way for an Arsenal team looking for positives in a season that has started so frustratingly when the club moves to Burnley the next weekend before. from a clash with rivals Tottenham in the North London Derby.

Norwich set a new record in defeat at Arsenal

It was never going to be easy to ask about Norwich manager Daniel Farke after Canarias returned to the Premier League after failing to avoid the crash in 2019-20 when they finished last. His last three seasons in the English top flight have all ended identically, relegation. If the first weeks of 2021-22 are anything to go through, that trend could continue after the Canaries failed to take anything away from an Arsenal team that started this campaign so badly.

But a historic record set by Farke’s men makes for poor reading after the day of absence after Norwich lost its first four Premier League games for the first time in club history.

Although the Norwich chief it was hardly expected to take much away from Arsenal In the afternoon, despite the Gunners’ difficulties, Canarias tackled the summer transfer window solidly, adding eleven players in a bid to improve both depth and quality in hopes of avoiding another post-promotion campaign. failed.

So far those efforts have been in vain, with Norwich now in last place after four games and just one goal to show for their efforts despite buys for Josh Sargent, Christos Tzolis and Milot Rashica. There is still time to straighten the ship at Carrow Road, but things are shaping up to end in an all too familiar conclusion in May.
