We know Arsenal are running more under Unai Emery, so how did they do this weekend against Watford?

Well, that trend continued with Arsenal making the third most sprints this weekend, beaten only by Huddersfield and Liverpool.

A sprint is defined as any time a player exceeds 15.7mph.

Chelsea were just behind the Gunners with Everton next, followed by Newcastle, Manchester City, and Watford.

Yes, that’s right, Arsenal sprinted more than their opponents on Saturday and, as a result of their superior talent, came away with all three points. It’s hardly rocket science.

Although West Ham were only out-sprinted by two sides this weekend, one of those was Manchester United made the fewest sprints in the league.
