Laurent Koscielny has scored as many, or more, goals than these players:

The Arsenal defender's goal versus Newcastle put his league tally at three goals. Here is the list of players that have scored three or fewer goals in the league this season. It's quite shocking.

Laurent Koscielny's had a few matches where he hasn't looked the best - especially in moments faced with defending in the air - but by and large, he's had what many would consider to be a pretty decent season up to this point. And, just a touch past halfway through the league season, he's also managed to already score three goals, tied for most goals he's scored in a league campaign since his arrival from Lorient in 2010.

As a way to visually show you not only how effective Koscielny's been when faced with chances on goal this season, but also how completely nuts this season as a whole has been across the league, listed below are the players who've scored as many, or fewer, goals during this league season than Koscielny:

Wayne Rooney (3 goals)
Christian Eriksen (3)
Oscar (3)
Willian (3)
Fabio Borini (2)
Memphis Depay (2)
David Silva (2)
Jordan Henderson (1)
Kevin Mirallas (1)
Loïc Rémy (1)
Marouane Fellaini (1)
Radamel Falcao (1)
Roberto Firmino (1)
Eden Hazard (0!!!)

and finally...

Samir Nasri (1)
