Our results against Bottom-13 teams is the worst for the past 10 seasons.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
The expectation for 130-goal 2017/18 season will be:
The STRIKERS are Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Lacazette, Danny Welbeck, Alex Iwobi and Eddie Nketiah.
STRIKERS sold and out on-loan: Alexis Sanchez, Oliver Giroud and Chuba Akpom.

STRIKERS contributed ..... 51.33% out of 65% expectation … 58 out of 84 goals expectation.
MIDFIELD contributed ...... 24.78% out of 25% expectation … 28 out of 33 goals expectation.
DEFENDER contributed ... 20.35% out of 07% expectation … 23 out of 09 goals which exceeded expectation.
"Dubious goal"..................... 3.54% out of 03% expectation ….. 4 out of 04 goals which met expectation.

STRIKERS are the primary reason why we flopped this season.

Maximum no. of games predicted = 38 + (6+6) Europa Cup + 8 Tin Cup + 2 FA Cup = 60 games.

….. 6 goals scored = 1.00 goals per game after playing 6 League Cup games.
… 30 goals scored = 2.14 goals per game after playing 14 Europa Cup games.
….. 3 goals scored = 1.50 goals per game after playing Community Shield + FA Cup Round #3.
… 74 goals scored = 1.95 goals per game after playing 38 League games.
113 goals scored = 1.88 goals per game after playing 60 games this season.

Community Shield is the 1st game for this season.

Sead Kolasinac scored the first goal of the season during Community Shield.
Sead Kolasinac scored the first Europa Cup goal.
Walcott scored the first League Cup goal.
Lacazette scored the first league goal of the season.

Koscielny is the 21st goal scorer.
Aubameyang is the 22nd goal scorer.
Mkhitaryan is the 23rd goal scorer.

Arsenal results against Top-6 teams are inferior and why we are not Top-4 contender.

Man City is the only unbeaten team against Bottom-13 teams.
Table B indicated that winning a Top-4 spots depends very much on the ability of teams to collect maximum points against Bottom-13 teams.
The Top-7 results against Bottom-13 teams lined up perfectly with League Table position.

We are worse than previous 4 seasons and exceeded on our average of 7 losses for the past 7 seasons.

2015/16 Leicester City proved that an inferior team can still be a title-winner by being unbeaten against Bottom-12 teams, and loses only 3 games against Top-8 teams.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Arsenal is in decline since a poor 2nd and followed by a worse 3rd Quarter results during the wintry months.
As usual, for every season, the trend is that Arsenal will have a scintillating 4th Quarter in a last gasp attempt to clinch a Top-4 spot – too little, too late.
