Arsenal make worst start to a Premier League season in 22 years in this one key area

Arsenal had another night to forget in this hugely inconsistent start to the season as they lost 3-0 at home to Aston Villa on Sunday evening.

Alexandre Lacazette and Willian did not look convincing up front, and this stat below from last season’s top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will also be a real worry as his form takes a serious turn for the worse…
