'We are a laughing stock': Some Arsenal fans 'disgusted' as big six rivals trump Gunners in key area
Some Arsenal fans have been lashing out after statistics emerged comparing various Premier League clubs and their goals from midfield tally.
According to data shared by journalist Sam Dean, the Gunners have scored less goals from the middle of the pitch than every other ‘big six’ club and Leicester City this season.
As a matter of fact, even their own player, Joe Willock, has scored more goals than all the Arsenal central midfielders combined. West Ham weren’t included on the list, however, have notched up 27 goals, mostly thanks to Tomas Soucek, who struck 10 times in the top-flight.
Despite the lack of attacking threat from Arteta’s central options, there still remains uncertainty over the 21-year-old’s future in north London with David Ornstein claiming the outfit won’t rush into a decision.
Arsenal’s central issues have been well-documented this campaign. The lack of goals is a stark reminder of how much of an overhaul is needed this summer.
It makes the uncertainty over Willock’s future all the more baffling. The youngster possesses a skill that no other Arsenal midfielder has and it should be celebrated as opposed to be used as a reason to make money off him.
Here are how fans reacted to the tweets…
Clear where Arsenal are lacking. Auba was a huge let down this season, but our forwards (Auba, Laca, Pepe) have all contributed to ~ 20 G/A this season. We need more from midfield, missing the days of Cazorla & Ramsey in the middle 💔— Feras فراس (@FerasAlD) May 24, 2021
Joe Willock vs Entire Arsenal. Disgusting.— Šaras (@sarpilius0) May 24, 2021
