If Arsenal win all their remaining Premier League games, they will finish with 61 points, so what does this total mean?

Arsenal are currently 9th with 46 points after 33 games, an average of 1.4 points a game.

Up until 1981, teams only got two points for a win so in the interests of fairness, I won’t go back before then.

  • Most points Arsenal can get this season – 61
  • Points total last season – 56
  • Worst points total under Arsene Wenger – 63 (17/18)
  • Points total in Emery’s full season – 70 (18/19, 5th)
  • Worst points total since 1981 – 51 (94/95, 12th)
  • Fewest goals conceded – 17 (98/99)
  • Most goals conceded – 60 (83/84)
  • Fewest goals scored – 40 (92/93)
  • Most goals scored – 87 (04/05)

In the Premier League this season so far, with five left to play, Arsenal have scored 44 and conceded 37.

Looking at Arsenal’s run in a few weeks back, it looked pretty straightforward, but this is Arsenal we’re talking about.

Although we’ve ‘only’ lost four of our last 14 in all competitions, three of them have come in our last 10 Premier League matches, with only four wins since Valentine’s Day.

Unai Emery got 73 games at Arsenal before he was sacked. He lost 20 of those.

Mikel Arteta has now taken charge of 79 Arsenal games and has lost 22.

Arsenal still have to play Newcastle (a), West Brom (h), Chelsea (a), Crystal Palace (a), and Brighton (h).

Currently 9th, Leeds are level on 46 points with a game in hand while Aston Villa are two points behind with two games in hand. Arsenal, meanwhile, are six points behind Everton in 8th.
