Some clear patterns have developed so far this Premier League campaign...
Indeed, both Newcastle and Sunderland are struggling massively in the creativity department.
While Arsenal have created no less than 65 chances so far this term - even if they have far from converted them all - the local rivals have only just managed more than half that between them...
What's interesting is the fact Everton and West Ham United are also in the bottom six, despite registering impressive away wins so far this Premier League season.
That suggests West Ham and Everton have so far been better at actually taking their chances - but Newcastle have still created far less. Granted, the Magpies have endured tough games against Manchester United and Arsenal, where they will have been on the defensive.
The fact they have only fashioned 17 opportunities, though, suggests Newcastle's strikers aren't yet a problem - but the service to them is. That should improve with time, while Sunderland fans will no doubt hope the same applies to them, although their back four remains their biggest concern.
