Arsenal thrash RC Lens by 6-0, remains undefeated in UCL

Arsenal has a capable composition on the front line in the 2023/2024 season. One can simply say that Arsenal's attack line has quite good flexibility and collectivity. EPL side achieved positive results in the last four matches in all competitions. The Gunners have comfortably and can score 10 goals in a match with the current team. In that period, Arsenal also only conceded once. Most recently, Arsenal won 6-0 when facing RC Lens on the fifth matchday of Group B of the UCL on Wednesday Which took place at Emirates Stadium, London.

Of the six goals scored, all came from different players. The goals were scored by Kai Havertz, Gabriel Jesus, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard and Jorginho respectively for the Hosts. Arsenal does not have a central striker who is very dominant in scoring goals like Erling Haaland or Harry Kane. However, Mikel Arteta's troops goal record in the Champions League is very good. They scored 15 goals in five matches. Arsenal is the team with the most goals in the group phase so far, level with Man City and Atletico as the side scored collectively. All players on the front line can score goals. Gabriel Jesus is so far the team's top scorer with a record of four goals. Then, there is Bukayo Saka with three goals.

Furthermore, five other players also contributed goals for Arsenal. All Arsenal strikers have scored goals in the 2023/2024 Champions League so far, except for Eddie Nketiah. Apart from being able to work collectively, Arsenal's front line can also work flexibly. The Head coach Arteta has many options if he wants to rotate or change tactics because he is a versatile player. Leandro Trossard and Kai Havretz can play all roles on the front line, they are very flexible types of players. Havertz can play as a midfielder, and Gabriel Jesus can play a wider role if needed. Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli are also not the type of players who stick to one role, even though they tend to operate in certain areas of the pitch.

Armed with a capable attack line, Arsenal is certain to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League for the 2023/2024 season. Even though there is still one match left in the group phase, it is impossible for the Gunners who have won 12 points to be caught by RC Lens who are in third place. Because PSV Eindhoven only has eight points, Arsenal will finish as winners of Group B, and has qualified convincingly.
