13 players have scored for Arsenal this season which is a nice spread but they aren’t getting very many individually.

Only 11 players have provided assists with Hector Bellerin leading the way on four. Pepe, Willock and Willian all have three, Saka and Smith Rowe have two while Maitland-Niles, Ceballos, Aubameyang, Nelson and Balogun all have one assist.

When you look at the list below the first thing to strike you will probably be the number of youngsters scoring for us.
