2. Scoring goals
Creating chances isn’t the only thing Draxler is good at- he has the habit of getting on the score sheet quite often. Even though he has scored only one goal so far in the league, he put the ball in the back of the net 10 times last season. He is able to score spectacular long range goals, as well as finish chances from inside the box. What makes him such a dangerous proposition is his incredible shot accuracy- 78% from 50 shots last season. While he has not been quite as accurate this season, he has had 8 shots on target.
Draxler has the ability to skip around his man and have a shot on goal, which will be particularly effective in Arsenal’s system. Giroud is particularly good with his back to goal, where he either lays the ball off for players around him or flicks the ball on for midfield runners to race on to. Combining that with Draxler’s shooting ability will add a different dimension to Arsenal’s attacking play, as defenses will not be sure whether to cover for the shot or go with the midfield runners.
