5 – Central Domination
Arsenal have spent 33% of their time in the middle of the pitch, that’s more than any other Premier League team. Second to the Gunners are Swansea (31%) whilst Tottenham and Manchester City are not far behind. We know Arsenal have quality players in the centre of the park, so this stat is not that surprising but it is certainly interesting, you may have thought Pep’s City side would have been ahead.
