While laughing at Arsenal for being 98th of 98 top flight European teams for shots conceded we are actually 96th. I’ve noticed this for ages, definitely all 2019. Hence the feeling we are never truly in control of game. Even Saturday although our win looked comfortable Palace actually had more shots on target. With better quality they could easily have grabbed a couple. The only logical reason I can conclude is the absence of a typical DM. I remember in 16/17 with Dier at his peak when we went 1-0 up the game felt as good as done we conceded so few goals. For however good Winks has been I still feel we are a better balanced team with a sturdy DM. We have so much quality going forward there’s enough there to not need a ball playing DM imo. Maybe I’m wrong that the issue is at DM, but hard to think of another explanation. Something that has to be addressed or we will really suffer against better quality finishing.
