‘Says It All’ ‘Not Surprised’ Arsenal Fans On Twitter Bemoan Key Statistic Which Highlights The Team’s Biggest Flaw

Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat to Wolves again highlighted the club’s biggest flaw. The Gunners’ defence has been pretty shambolic both home and away this season and the weakness was again exposed last night.

The London club have conceded, on average, 1.82 goals per game on the road under Unai Emery, but as this graph shows, it is part of a longer-term trend which predates the Spaniard’s time in the hot seat:

Supporters on Twitter are not surprised by the statistic but are keen for Arsenal to make serious improvements to the backline in the summer:

With an ageing captain in Laurent Koscielny, an error-prone Shkodran Mustafi and Nacho Monreal’s contract expiring at the end of the season, defensive reinforcements are desperately needed.

Whether the club will make the required investment, it remains to be seen.  Much may depend on the team qualifying for the Champions League. Despite the loss to Wolves, they are still just one point behind Chelsea in fourth with three games to go.
