A look at Arsenal’s best goalscorers this season – Part 2

Posted on May 21, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – 6 goals

Statistics can be a little bit deceiving at times, and while we don’t want to be too harsh, we can’t get around the fact that Mkhi has had a pretty bad season. He came to the club in exchange for Alexis Sanchez who went to Manchester United, and in truth, it’s a deal that hasn’t really benefitted either club all too much. He has a great game every so often, but it’s much too few and far between. Consistency is the key at this level, after all.

Aaron Ramsey – 6 goals

Arsenal are going to miss this man more than most fans and neutrals can possibly fathom. He’s the kind of goalscoring midfielder that can also put in an incredible shift in the middle of the park, and he’s just starting to come into his own. We think he’s going to do some phenomenal things with Juventus, obviously, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still sad to see him leave. It’s been a turbulent journey at times, but he’s been one hell of a servant for this club along the way.

Mesut Ozil – 6 goals

The things that Mesut actually does to create space and bring others into the game is much more important than his goalscoring record, especially when you think about how inconsistent he’s been over the years. The guy just seems to trip and fall at the worst possible times, which is why so many Gunners fans get frustrated with him. Hopefully, next season, he can be a bit more consistent.

Alex Iwobi – 5 goals

Alex Iwobi should have twice as many goals as he does and the fact that he doesn’t should tell you all that you need to know regarding his future at the club. He just doesn’t belong at this level and whilst some will disagree with that, the proof is in the pudding.

Danny Welbeck – 5 goals

If it wasn’t for Danny Welbeck’s injury, we’re confident in saying that he would’ve easily reached double figures for the season. He was on a great run of form when he was struck down, and to be perfectly honest, we think it’s a damn shame that he isn’t going to be given the chance to prove himself once again next season.

Granit Xhaka – 4 goals

A midfield general who doesn’t really need to be scoring goals all too often, but when he hits the back of the net, the impact is certainly felt by the team.

Who has been the most underrated goalscorer for Arsenal this season?
