Ranking every Arsenal player by their 2019-20 points per game: Nketiah first

Quick Reads

While 2019-20 hasn’t been a vintage year for Arsenal, the club appear to be going in the right direction under Mikel Arteta. 

After a poor start to the season, Arteta replaced Unai Emery in December 2019 and helped the Gunners qualify for the FA Cup final.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has continued to play a starring role for the club, scoring 22 goals in 36 Premier League appearances.

Arsenal fans will also be encouraged by the progress of their young players this season, with Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli all making an impact in the first team.
