Arsenal have faced a huge number of shots in the Premier League so far this season

Unai Emery

Arsenal's run without a win in all competitions stretched to six games on Saturday as they drew 2-2 at home to relegation-threatened Southampton.

The under-pressure Unai Emery lined up his side with three central defenders, however Danny Ings gave the visitors an eighth-minute lead.

James Ward-Prowse put Southampton 2-1 up, but Alexandre Lacazette got Arsenal back on terms on both occasions they were trailing, including a 96th-minute leveller.

The full-time whistle was met with audible boos from fans inside the Emirates stadium, and plenty of them chanted for Emery to be sacked during the match.

The result leaves Arsenal eight points off the top four and their season so far can be summed up by the remarkable amount of shots opposition teams are having against them in each game.

Arsenal's 'shots faced' statistics

Since becoming Arsenal manager, Emery has signed centre-backs Sokratis, David Luiz and defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira in an attempt to make the Gunners more solid at the back.

However, the north London club have conceded a seriously worrying number of shots on their goal in the current league campaign - check out the full breakdown in the tweet below:

So, in 13 matches, Arsenal have faced 225 shots, which is an average of over 17 per game, and the stats from their last three Premier League outings in particular are atrocious.

In the draws with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton and the loss at Leicester City, Arsenal gave up a whopping 71 shots at their goal (23.7 per game on average).

This isn't a recent problem, because as early as September, the Gunners had faced more shots than any other team in all of Europe's top five leagues.

Emery's men rather embarrassingly boast a negative goal difference in the league and have conceded more goals than sides like Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Bournemouth.

The writing seems to be on the wall regarding Emery's future in charge, but for now, Arsenal must focus on a potentially tricky clash with Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League.
