Arsene Wneger has acknowledged that goals have been in short supply in recent times for Arsenal, and the Frenchman is anxious to find a solution as the season enters its final months.
The Gunners travel to Old Trafford tomorrow having scored just 6 goals in their last 8 games in all competitions.
“I agree that our goals have dried up seriously,” said Wenger, “and we have to find a solution. I’m conscious of that.”
Asked why the goals haven’t been coming with the frequency we’d like, he said, “It’s a good question – and it’s a bad answer. If I had an obvious answer… It’s going through my head at the moment.
“It’s not down to individuals because if you look at the goals that Sanchez has scored this season, you will see he hasn’t scored for a long time. It’s not especially down to him. In the last five, six or seven games we have struggled to score.
“There’s many aspects that I analyse at the moment and we have to find a quick answer.”
There could certainly be changes to the forward line tomorrow, with suggestions that Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott could both start. Whether that’s enough to get the goals flowing again remains to be seen.
Let’s hope so.
