Through a mix of analytics from several data sources, fan player ratings, transfermarkt value and more, we calculate and report The Fresh Arsenal Power Rankings weekly, exclusively in this newsletter. Rankings will be altered based on recent performance (last 6 games) as well as being anchored by season-long data. Every week we will show you the updated rankings with some performance observations as to why these changes have happened.
After Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Oxford United on Monday night, there have been some significant shifts in the Power Rankings.
Risers – Eddie Nketiah stole the show in the second half against Oxford and with that he rocketed from 11th to 7th. He has now scored 4 goals in the 4 games since coming into the starting lineup for the injured Gabriel Jesus.
Gabriel Magalhaes also had a brilliant game at Oxford and has been very solid for Arsenal in recent weeks, he’s moved up two places from 6th to 4th in the latest update.
Fallers – It wasn’t a nice evening for Albert Sambi Lokonga who would’ve been looking to make a statement. His position of 17th in these rankings highlights his lack of influence in this team and his long term future may be in question as a result.
Thomas Partey has dropped a few positions, more due to the fact he didn’t feature tonight. As the scores show below, it’s very tight in those top 10 positions.
