Arsenal: 100 goals and counting

Published 1 Comments

Theo Walcott's strike at the weekend against Queens Park Rangers was Arsenal's 100th goal of the campaign in all competitions.

In the summer a lot of people were saying that the Gunners will struggle to score goals after losing star-man Robin van Persie to rivals Manchester United, but the players left at the Emirates Stadium have stepped up and shared out the goals a hell of a lot more.

Van Persie was the main goalscorer for Arsenal last year and once he left, fans were worried that their goalscoring threat would vanish and the club would find it hard to find goals, but the doubts have vanished as the side reached their 100th goal at the weekend.

Arsenal have been involved in some massive score-lines this season. They beat Tottenham 5-2, Newcastle United 7-3, Reading 7-5 and 5-2, Southampton 6-1 and Coventry City 6-1. 

So where have the goals come from for Arsenal?

Well Theo Walcott has scored the most with 20 goals in all competitions and it is summer signing Olivier Giroud who is second to him with 17 goals. Two other summer signings Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla then follow with 14 and 12 goals respectively.
