Arsenal – 410 crosses
Arsenal performances this season draw lots of question, upon all signing. The head coach , arteta based his playing style on crossing which doesn't favour like abamuyang while playing this reduces it level of goals compare to his time at Germany league with borrusia dotmund.
Arsenal’s prolific number of crosses has not always correlated to attacking success, however, managing just three successful crosses from a huge 35 attempted during the defeat to Wolves in December.

Chelsea – 443 crosses
Thomas Tuchel was full of praise for his Chelsea charges after Saturday’s midday win against resurgent Burnley, who had come in the back of three consecutive wins to go along with their usual burley bur(n)ley-ness.But Chelsea controlled proceedings once again, certainly in the second half, and while some pundits were less than impressed, Tuchel certainly had no shortage of praise for the men in Blue.
Ranking second for crosses this season are Chelsea who have made 443 for the campaign so far, the west London side having often chosen an imposing centre-forward target in Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham.
Liverpool – 461 crosses
Liverpool delivered a crafty, sedated, comprehensive performance to beat West Ham on Sunday. In many ways, there were echos of last season's title triumph: long passages of controlled, rhythmic play interspersed with sudden explosions of brilliance.Sunday represented a classic 'through the gears' performance. Klopp's side was not perfect from the off. But they did control the flow of the game and rip any sense of West Ham urgency out of the first 10-15 minutes, something that has been an issue during the recent slump.
From that platform, they built, methodically ironing out any systematic issues (more on that later) and waiting for the moments of inspiration to strike. Somewhat unsurprisingly, it is that pairing who lead the crossing statistics for all Premier League players, Alexander-Arnold having registered 136 this season with Robertson leading the way having attempted a staggering 174 crosses. Liverpool operate through the two flank side in which make the player to deliver crosses in their match using the set pieces.
