If there’s one aspect in which Arsenal has truly excelled this season, it’s their proficiency in front of goal. Currently leading the Premier League in goals scored with 82, they’ve edged past Manchester City by two goals.

What’s particularly impressive about this tally is that it’s been achieved with just 98 big chances created, and a mere 52 missed opportunities. In fact, seven other teams have squandered more big chances than Arsenal throughout the season.

Furthermore, their goal distribution has been remarkably even. Across all competitions, Arsenal boasts four players with double-digit goal tallies: Bukayo Saka with 18, Leandro Trossard with 15, Kai Havertz with 12, and Martin Odegaard with 11.

The acquisition of Havertz has proven to be a masterstroke. Initially met with skepticism regarding Arsenal’s Β£65 million investment in the German, Havertz has silenced doubters with a stellar campaign, particularly in his recent adaptation to a forward role. With 11 goal involvements in his last ten Premier League outings, Havertz has firmly established himself as Arsenal’s primary center-forward.

However, this raises questions about how Mikel Arteta’s alternative striking option could factor in against Tottenham Hotspur this Sunday, especially considering his impressive performance against them in their last encounter.

In the previous North London Derby, which ended in a 2-2 draw, Gabriel Jesus stood out as one of Arsenal’s standout performers. Deployed tirelessly on the pitch, the former Manchester City striker earned plaudits for his relentless pressing and overall contribution. Football.London’s Chief Arsenal writer, Kaya Kaynak, awarded Jesus an 8/10 rating, emphasizing his role as Arsenal’s main threat in the second half.

Indeed, Jesus’ statistics reflect the acclaim he received for his performance against Spurs. According to SofaScore, the 27-year-old won an impressive eight ground duels, trailing only Saka and Destiny Udogie, and successfully completed all three of his attempted tackles. In possession, Jesus completed three out of four dribbles and registered two shots, including one on target, although he did miss one significant chance.

Looking ahead to the upcoming match against Spurs, there’s a possibility that Jesus could be deployed in a similar role as in the previous encounter, starting on the left wing rather than as a central striker. Given Gabriel Martinelli’s lackluster form this season, Jesus might find himself out wide once again.

Arteta has expressed admiration for Jesus’s disruptive style of play, recognizing its ability to create space for teammates. This chaotic energy could prove invaluable against Spurs, a side known for their energetic approach under Ange Postecoglou.

Jesus’s intense pressing could pose a significant threat to Spurs’ buildup play, potentially tipping the scales in Arsenal’s favor in what promises to be a crucial encounter. While Arteta’s lineup decisions remain uncertain, the inclusion of Jesus could offer Arsenal the edge needed to secure victory in this high-stakes match.
