Amidst all the talk of new blood arriving at Arsenal, Joel Campbell has become a forgotten man whilst on-loan at Betis for the past two years – here though, is a quick statistical look at his season in La Liga:

– Started 21 games, and made 7 further appearance from the substitutes bench.

– Scored 2 goals.

– Provided 3 assists.

– Had 42 shots during the season, at an average of 1.5 per game.

– Won 32 of the 83 aerial duels he contested.

– Was Man Of The Match once.

– Created 20 scoring opportunities for his side, at an average of 0.7 per game.

– Was fouled 65 times this season, at average of 2.3 times per game (more than any other Betis player).

– Was dispossessed on average 1.8 times per game, again more than any other Betis player.

– Completed 27 successful dribbles during the season (2nd most at Betis).

– Completed 387 of 574 attempted passes (67.4%).

Campbell played the vast majority of his games as a wide-forward this season, with Betis favouring him on the right-hand side – he’s not a natural forward, so as and when he does see the light of day at The Emirates, expect him to occupy a similar role.
