Arsenal have now matched an incredible Premier League set-piece record after a phenomenal transformation led by set-piece coach Nicolas Jover.

The German coach has revolutionised how the Gunners both attack and defend set-pieces, and that work has proved fruitful all season, and has now seen the team match an incredible Premier League record.

Arsenal have now equalled the record for the most goals scored from corners in a single Premier League season, having amassed 16 so far this season already.

This means that Arsenal possess a great opportunity to break the current record of 16, set by West Bromwich Albion and Oldham Athletic in the 2016/17 and 1992/93 seasons respectively.

In all competitions, Arsenal have scored from 22 set-pieces so far this season (excluding penalties) – which is a staggering 16 more than they did in the season before Jover joined the club, showing just how important the Frenchman has been.


As well as Jover’s huge impact, Gabriel Magalhaes has also been a huge factor in the Gunners’ success from set-pieces this season, with the Brazilian having scored four headed goals in the current league campaign.

Currently, corner goals account for just shy of 20 per cent of Arsenal’s Premier League goals so far this season – which shows just how different their season could have been without such ruthlessness from set-pieces.
