Incredible – how can Wenger ignore these numbers?
WhoScored data shows that the Gunners have actually had 20.2 shots per game in the Premier League this season, showing that chance creation clearly isn’t their problem.
That record puts them third in Europe overall for shots per game, and their shots on target aren’t at all bad either – 6.8 per game, the 7th best total in Europe’s top five leagues.
Unsurprisingly, they also make the top ten in Europe for possession, with an average of 58.6% per match. How Arsene Wenger fails to realise that it’s the players taking the shots at the end of these moves that are costing his team is beyond almost everyone.

Usually so entertaining and attack-minded, Arsenal have managed only five goals in six Premier League games so far, eight fewer than both Leicester City and West Ham.
Something needs to change, and it’s painfully obvious that unless Wenger finally spends big money on a player like Karim Benzema or Gonzalo Higuain, there will be no league title at the Emirates Stadium anytime soon.
