Despite falling just short of the Premier League title in the 2023/24 season, Arsenal achieved remarkable success in a particular area of their game: aerial dominance. The Gunners scored a league-leading 17 headed goals, equaling the highest seasonal tally in the Premier League since 2016-17.

This aerial prowess was a testament to their tactical approach and the quality of their attacking players. Manager Mikel Arteta clearly emphasized the importance of set-pieces and exploiting crosses into the box. This strategy paid dividends throughout the season, with players like William Saliba, Gabriel Jesus, and Bukayo Saka proving adept at converting headers.

Arsenal’s dominance in the air was a key factor in their ability to score goals from various avenues. While their lack of a consistent long-range threat was a noticeable weakness, their aerial prowess provided a reliable alternative route to goal.

This success in aerial play serves as a valuable reminder that even in a season where the ultimate prize eluded them, Arsenal achieved significant progress in key areas. Their ability to score goals from set-pieces and dominate in the air will undoubtedly remain a valuable weapon in their arsenal as they aim for Premier League glory in the coming seasons.

I enjoy football so much and I am in love with Arsenal Football Club. I always watch the matches and will always give you my opinions about the game here.
