A strange – or alarming – stat has emerged that Kieran Gibbs had more shots than any other Arsenal player in our 2-1 loss against West Brom on Saturday.
The full back was played in a slightly more advanced position against the Baggies following his late equaliser when coming off the bench against Spurs just weeks ago.
Although he didn’t exactly set the world on fire this time around, he did manage to have more shots than any other players, including Ozil, Giroud and Alexis.
I’m still not entirely convinced that the defender should be played so far forward; shots don’t always equal shots on target. However, if he’s helping the team, this can only be a good thing.
Kieran Gibbs (3) had more shots than any other Arsenal player. Giroud managed one, Alexis two, Ozil one
