Arsenal have had finally won a game against a Top-5 title contender – Tiny Totts.
We need to collect at least 3 wins and no more than 3 losses to stand a chance of Top-4 finish.


Table B – Comparison of the Top-7 team against Bottom-13 teams:
….. W … D … L ….. F ….. A … +/- __ Points
… 13 ….. 0 … 0 … 35 ….. 3 … 32 … … 39 … Liverpool

….. 8 ….. 3 … 2 … 29 … 17 … 12 … … 27 … Manchester United
….. 7 ….. 5 … 1 … 27 … 15 … 12 … … 26 … Everton


Table A and Table indicate that it is Chelski and Arsenal that will fight for the last spot in Top-4.
But a rejuvenated ManU under Soljerk is a real threat to the dogfight for Top-4 status now.
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.
An indicator that Liverpool can win the title by remaining perfect against Bottom-13 teams.
We will regain Top-4 status by remaining unbeaten for the rest of the season; or draw/loss less than 6 games for remaining 19 games.

Arsenal Bottom-13 Results Comparison:
….. W … D … L ….. F ….. A … +/- __ Points
… 21 ….. 3 … 2 … 58 … 18 … 40 … … 66 … 2013/14
… 19 ….. 3 … 4 … 53 … 21 … 32 … … 60 … 2014/15

….. 9 ….. 3 … 1 … 30 … 15 … 15 … … 30 … 2018/19

We only need to win 12 out of remaining 13 games to have our best result against Bottom-13 teams since 2013/14 season.

Season … Finish …. W …. D …. L ….. F ….. A … +/- … Points
2007/08 ….. 3rd ….. 24 … 11 ….. 3 … 74 … 31 … 43 … … 83 points – Arsenal

2017/18 ….. 6th ….. 19 ….. 6 … 13 … 74 … 51 … 23 … … 63 points – Arsenal
2018/19 ….. 5th ….. 11 ….. 5 ….. 3 … 41 … 25 … 16 … … 38 points – Arsenal

My expectation is for Unai Emery to match or surpass 2013/14 season result of 79 points.
Uani Emery will need to win 13 out of 19 remaining games to match 2013/14 and 2007/08 results.


We have a good 1st quarter, attained Top-4.
We are struggling during 2nd quarter due to “Horrendous Injury List” during the wintry months – the bane of Arsene Wenger latter half regime. Let’s hope that we had turned the corner against Liverpool.
We now need to remain unbeaten during 3rd and 4th Quarter to stand a chance of being Top-4 in 2019.
Currently, Liverpool, Man City and Tiny Totts are the form team and look certain to clinch Top-3 by February 2019 if they have a scintillating 3rd Quarter as well.

ManU can only improve under Soljerk and traditionally, started to climb the Table in the New Year.

Arsenal have had finally won a game against a Top-5 title contender – Tiny Totts.
We need to collect at least 3 wins and no more than 3 losses to stand a chance of Top-4 finish.
But that 5-1 whipping at Anfield indicated that we will not be Top-5 with ManU climbing up the Table.

Table A and Table B indicate that it is Chelski, Arsenal and ManU that will fight for the last spot in Top-4.
A rejuvenated ManU under Soljerk is a real threat to the dogfight for Top-4 status now.
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. And why Arsenal will not make it to Top-4 if they do not win remaining 13 games against Bottom-3.
An indicator that Liverpool can win the title by remaining perfect against Bottom-13 teams.

We will regain Top-4 status by remaining unbeaten for the rest of the season; or draw/loss less than 5 games for remaining 18 games.

My expectation is for Unai Emery to match or surpass 2013/14 season result of 79 points.
Uani Emery will need to win 13 out of 18 remaining games to match 2013/14 and 2007/08 results.


We have a good 1st quarter, attained Top-4.
We are struggling during 2nd quarter due to “Horrendous Injury List” during the wintry months – the bane of Arsene Wenger latter half regime. Let’s hope that we had turned the corner against Liverpool.
We now need to remain unbeaten during 3rd and 4th Quarter to stand a chance of being Top-4 in 2019.
Currently, Liverpool, Man City and Tiny Totts are the form team and look certain to clinch Top-3 by February 2019 if they have a scintillating 3rd Quarter as well.

ManU can only improve under Soljerk and traditionally, started to climb the Table in the New Year.

The expectation for 130-goal 2018/19 season will be:
The STRIKERS are Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck, Alex Iwobi and Eddie Nketiah.

STRIKERS contributed ..... 50.79% out of 65% expectation … 32 out of 84 goals expectation.
MIDFIELD contributed ...... 34.92% out of 25% expectation … 22 out of 33 goals expectation.
DEFENDER contributed ….. 7.94% out of 07% expectation …. 5 out of 9 goals expectation.
"Dubious goal"...................... 6.35% out of 03% expectation …. 4 out of 4 goals which met expectation.

STRIKERS are underperforming and must continue scoring at least every other game.
Nketiah, Iwobi, Lacazette, Ramsey, Ozil and Mkhitaryan are not pulling their weight to score goals.
Aubameyang needs too many clear-cut chances to score.
Lacazette is not hitting the target let alone scoring.


Maximum no. of games predicted = 38 + (6+8) Europa Cup + 3 Tin Cup + 5 FA Cup = 60 games.

….. 0 goals scored = 0.00 goals per game after playing FA Cup Round #3.
….. 5 goals scored = 1.67 goals per game after playing 3 League Cup games.
… 12 goals scored = 2.00 goals per game after playing 6 Europa Cup games.
… 46 goals scored = 2.19 goals per game after playing 21 League games.
… 63 goals scored = 2.10 goals per game after playing 30 total games; or 126 goals after playing 60 games.


Mkhitaryan scored the first league goal of the season.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is latest 18th goal scorer.

We have 18 different goal scorers for our first 29 games.

Arsenal have had finally won a game against a Top-5 title contender – Tiny Totts.
We need to collect at least 3 wins and no more than 3 losses to stand a chance of Top-4 finish.

Table A and Table B indicate that it is Chelski, Arsenal and ManU that will fight for the last spot in Top-4.
A rejuvenated ManU under Soljerk is a real threat to the dogfight for Top-4 status now.
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. And why Arsenal will not make it to Top-4 if they do not win remaining 13 games against Bottom-3.
An indicator that Liverpool can win the title by remaining perfect against Bottom-13 teams.

We will regain Top-4 status by remaining unbeaten for the rest of the season; or draw/loss less than 5 games for remaining 18 games.

My expectation is for Unai Emery to match or surpass 2013/14 season result of 79 points.
Uani Emery will need to win 13 out of 18 remaining games to match 2013/14 and 2007/08 results.

[]

The expectation for 130-goal 2018/19 season will be:
The STRIKERS are Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck, Alex Iwobi and Eddie Nketiah.

STRIKERS contributed ..... 50.00% out of 65% expectation … 33 out of 84 goals expectation.
MIDFIELD contributed ...... 36.36% out of 25% expectation … 24 out of 33 goals expectation.
DEFENDER contributed ….. 7.58% out of 07% expectation …. 5 out of 9 goals expectation.
"Dubious goal"...................... 6.06% out of 03% expectation …. 4 out of 4 goals which met expectation.

STRIKERS are underperforming and must continue scoring at least every other game.
Nketiah, Iwobi, Lacazette, Ramsey, Ozil and Mkhitaryan are not pulling their weight to score goals.
Aubameyang needs too many clear-cut chances to score.
Lacazette is not hitting the target let alone scoring.
At Blackpool, Nketiah is a good example why our strikers are not sharp enough to score regularly.
Midfield is playing to expectation and took over the scoring burden now.


Maximum no. of games predicted = 38 + (6+8) Europa Cup + 3 Tin Cup + 5 FA Cup = 60 games.

….. 3 goals scored = 3.00 goals per game after playing FA Cup Round #3.
….. 5 goals scored = 1.67 goals per game after playing 3 League Cup games.
… 12 goals scored = 2.00 goals per game after playing 6 Europa Cup games.
… 46 goals scored = 2.19 goals per game after playing 21 League games.
… 66 goals scored = 2.13 goals per game after playing 31 total games; or 127 goals after playing 60 games.


Mkhitaryan scored the first league goal of the season.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is latest 18th goal scorer.

We have 18 different goal scorers for our first 29 games.

The latest goal-scorer will be indicated at top of list:

Arsenal vs ManU
[]

The expectation for 130-goal 2018/19 season will be:
The STRIKERS are Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck, Alex Iwobi and Eddie Nketiah.

STRIKERS contributed ..... 50.00% out of 65% expectation … 34 out of 84 goals expectation.
MIDFIELD contributed ...... 35.29% out of 25% expectation … 24 out of 33 goals expectation.
DEFENDER contributed ….. 8.82% out of 07% expectation …. 6 out of 9 goals expectation.
"Dubious goal"...................... 6.06% out of 03% expectation …. 4 out of 4 goals which met expectation.

STRIKERS are definitely underperforming.
It is compounded by our attacking midfielders not scoring regularly.


Maximum no. of games predicted = 38 + (6+8) Europa Cup + 3 Tin Cup + 5 FA Cup = 60 games.

If Tiny Totts should knock us out of FA Cup, look more and more like this can be one of our shortest season with 53 to 57 games played if we do not reach Europa Cup final?

….. 3 goals scored = 3.00 goals per game after playing FA Cup Round #3.
….. 5 goals scored = 1.67 goals per game after playing 3 League Cup games.
… 12 goals scored = 2.00 goals per game after playing 6 Europa Cup games.
… 48 goals scored = 2.09 goals per game after playing 23 League games.
… 68 goals scored = 2.06 goals per game after playing 33 total games; or 123 goals after playing 60 games.


Mkhitaryan scored the first league goal of the season.
Koscielny is latest 19th goal scorer.

We have 19 different goal scorers for our first 33 games.

The latest goal-scorer will be indicated at top of list:

Arsenal have had finally won games against a Top-5 title contender – Tiny Totts and Chelski.
We need to collect at least 3 wins and no more than 3 losses to stand a chance of Top-4 finish.
And Emery had better 2017/18 result against Top-6.

Table A and Table B indicate that it is Chelski, Arsenal and ManU that will fight for the last spot in Top-4.
A rejuvenated ManU under Soljerk is a real threat to the dogfight for Top-4 status now.
And we need Tiny Totts to stumble and drag them into a dog fight for Top-4 status.
Arsenal will not make it to Top-4 if they do not win remaining 11 games against Bottom-3.

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.
An indicator that Liverpool can win the title by remaining perfect against Bottom-13 teams.

We are leaking goals and no difference from Arsene Wenger’s teams for the past decade.
Worse, Unai Emery team is scoring less goals than any of Arsene Wenger’s teams.
Can we score more than 68 league goals this season with new Diamond formation?
But if we can collect 36 out of remaining 45 points available, it will be our best result in last 10 seasons.


We have a good 1st quarter, attained Top-4.
We are struggling during 2nd quarter due to “Horrendous Injury List” during the wintry months – the bane of Arsene Wenger latter half regime.
Let’s hope that we had turned the corner against Chelski.
We are having a horrible 3rd Quarter in 2019.
We do not start a chance to be Top-4 unless we can string together at least a 6 consecutive wins run and remain unbeaten during 2019.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
We have a poor 2nd quarter and a worse 3rd Quarter.
