Wenger concerned by lack of Arsenal goals

Arsene Wenger has admitted Arsenal’s struggle to score goals is a problem, the Metro has reported.

The Gunners drew 0-0 with Manchester United on Wednesday and while they did score against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, Mikel Arteta’s penalty was scant consolation in a 5-1 defeat.

Arsenal have scored 48 goals in their 26 Premier League games so far this season, the same tally as second-place Chelsea but substantially less than Manchester City and Liverpool, who have 68 and 66 respectively.

“We are a bit short of goals at the moment,” Wenger said. “Mathematically we have lost goal scorers with [Theo] Walcott and [Aaron] Ramsey.

“At the moment in games like [the Man Utd draw], you see that. We had two or three chances but we didn’t manage to score a goal in a game of very few chances.”

Olivier Giroud is Arsenal’s top scorer this season with 14 but has failed to find the back of the net in his last three appearances and spurned some presentable opportunities against United. Arsenal’s second top scorer is Ramsey, who has been sidelined with injury in recent weeks.

Wenger conceded that the failure to beat United side at the Emirates Stadium was a chance not taken in the title race, but preferred to take the positives from the performance.

“When you don’t win it’s always a missed opportunity when you want to chase for the title,” the manager said. “Let’s say it’s a disappointing result against a good team but the attitude of the players, the fighting spirit, was very reassuring.”
