Arsenal’s remarkable 2023/24 season, where they narrowly missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City, is often discussed in terms of their potent attack, relentless energy, and youthful exuberance. However, there’s an often overlooked statistic that sheds light on a key element of their success: defensive solidity.

Arsenal’s defensive prowess is not simply a result of individual brilliance, but a collective effort that starts from the front. The Gunners conceded a remarkably low 87 shots on target throughout the season. This figure is particularly noteworthy when considering the historical context.

In fact, Arsenal’s 2023/24 tally is the lowest they’ve achieved since the 2003/04 season, a period that saw them win the Premier League title under the management of Arsene Wenger. The 2003/04 team, famed for their “Invincibles” status, conceded only 109 shots on target, demonstrating the remarkable consistency of Arsenal’s defensive performance across two distinct eras.

This statistic highlights the importance of defensive discipline and organization in achieving sustained success. While the Gunners’ attacking firepower often steals the headlines, their ability to limit the number of clear-cut chances for their opponents is a testament to the collective spirit and tactical awareness within the squad. This defensive solidity, often overshadowed by their attacking brilliance, played a pivotal role in Arsenal’s title challenge, showcasing the importance of a well-balanced approach to achieve success at the highest level.
