The stats behind our Home vs Away predictions:

  • Arsenal have faced just 1.88 Expected Goals Against in the Premier League in 2024.
  • Arsenal have won eight of their 13 away Premier League games this season.
  • Bukayo Saka (seven) has scored more Premier League goals than any other player in 2024.

Gunners on the charge

At the moment it feels like many are just looking at Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title race. Even Opta’s AI-powered season predictions have it as an 85.64% chance that one of those two sides will win the title. But Arsenal are very much title contenders.

The Gunners have the best defence in 2024, facing just 1.88 Expected Goals Against in the Premier League — with Man City the second-best with an xGA of 6.83. They have also scored at least two goals in each of their past seven halves of Premier League football, the first club to ever achieve that feat in the competition’s history.

A run of six straight Premier League wins in 2024 has put Arsenal’s poor end to 2023 behind them, having lost their final two games of the year. It leaves the Gunners two points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, who they took four points off this season.

At the other end of the table, it feels as though time is running out for Sheffield United. The Blades are bottom of the Premier League and, thanks to Everton having their points deduction reduced, are now 11 points from safety.

The appointment of Chris Wilder hasn’t brought the relegation-battling miracle they would have hoped, though he has brought in eight of their 13 points this season. Sheffield United recently beat Luton to keep their relegation battle going, but they followed that up with defeats to Brighton and Wolves.
