According to Orbinho, Arsenal have hit the bar more times than any other team in the Premier League but is this down to bad luck or just not being clinical enough?
Arsenal have hit the bar 11 times this season. Yes: 11 times. This is more than any other team.
In our second half against West Brom, Ozil hit a ball off the bar. If it’d gone in, we would have equalised and salvaged a point – or more – in what was a crucial game in the title race.
When players hit the bar, is this down to being unlucky and just not hitting the target accurately enough?
I think it depends on the player. In Ozil’s case, it’s probably down to sheer lack of luck. The playmaker has proven time and time against this season that he’s capable of scoring. It was a bad day all round for Arsenal, so he can’t beat himself up too much about it.
