See, MLS labels all shots as attempts on goal, which isn't exactly true. Shots on goal are actually termed as shots on target. So FCD finished Sunday's tie with the denizens of the Emerald City with seven shots on goal compared to just four by the visitors.

There's nothing quite like the chemistry of two strikers making music together by playing off of each other's strengths or setting each other up. Sometimes, one guy is the emotional header and the other is the acrobatic juggler or one guy is the stronger dribbler while the other has a quick boot.

In Soccer, a strong scoring duo makes all the difference for fans and for a winning record.

Liverpool 0 Arsenal 2

1) If we insist - rightly - on giving new signings a chance, then it's pretty inconsistent to jump to extensive conclusions too quickly. Have Arsenal looked better defensively in the first three games of the season? Yeah, absolutely.

But to argue that this mean we now have the best defence in the League is not so much over-egging the point as scrambling it (if you'll forgive the terrible metaphor).
