Arsenal extend Premier League-leading benchmark vs Everton

A head-turning statistic surrounding the set-piece prowess of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal has come to the fore on Sunday evening.

Arsenal, of course, are currently locked in Premier League action.

In their return to play on the back of the international break, the Gunners have made the trip to Goodison Park, eyeing a fourth win from five up against Everton.

And, as things stand late in proceedings on Merseyside, all three points is precisely what the day’s visitors are headed towards.

This comes owing to a solitary goal, netted by Leandro Trossard.

With 68 minutes on the clock, and pressure mounting, a wonderful exchange down the right hand side culminated in Bukayo Saka’s pull-back being slotted home in style by Belgian international Trossard.

And, as alluded to above, such endeavours on the part of Arteta’s men have since given rise to an altogether noteworthy statistic.

As revealed by statisticians Opta:

‘Since the start of last season, Arsenal have scored more goals from corners than any other team in the Premier League.’

This comes with the north Londoners having notched an impressive 16 set-piece goals across this stretch.
