Reds forwards should be licking their lips as worrying early-season Arsenal stat is outlined

Posted by

Liverpool host Arsenal this evening in the Premier League, with both sides looking to maintain their 100% records domestically so far this season.

The Reds have beaten Norwich City and Southampton so far, while the Gunners narrowly overcame Newcastle United on the opening day and then beat Burnley 2-1 last weekend.

In the two league games they have faced so far, Arsenal have conceded an average of 13.5 shots per match according to TalkSport.

That seems a very high figure, particularly when the standard of the attackers of the two sides they have played so far is factored in. If Newcastle and Burnley can generate that many chances, how many will the Reds get?

It’s not exactly a massive surprise, of course – Arsenal’s defensive troubles have been well-documented. When a club bringing in David Luiz is seen as massively strengthening their backline, that probably says it all.

If Arsenal are as leaky at the back as they have been recently, Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane will be ready to pounce on every chance they are afforded.
