Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal's lack of goals recently is worrying

Arsene Wenger has acknowledged that he is worried about Arsenal’s lack of goals in their recent matches and admitted he was trying to find a solution to the problem.

The Gunners sit third in the Premier League table behind Leicester City and north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, but they’ve been prevented from scoring in five of their last eight games across all competitions.

Arsenal form

What’s more, Arsenal have scored 41 goals in the league this term compared to Leicester’s 48 and Spurs’ 47. Manchester City, who currently occupy fourth place, have notched 48 as well.

With an awkward trip to Manchester United tomorrow, Wenger will be tasked with ironing out any deficiencies in his squad.

The lack of goals

Scoring an abundance of goals isn’t always necessary, but finding the back of the net at least once at Old Trafford will be a minimum requirement if Arsenal want to ensure they remain in the thick of the title race.

Wenger knows this all too well and, as per ESPN, he’s explained that it’s troubling him to a degree.

"It's going through my head at the moment, because I agree with you that our goals have dried up seriously. I am conscious of that," Wenger said.

"There are many aspects that I analyse at the moment. And we have to find a quick answer."

Arsenal credentials

In any case, a positive run-in to the end of the campaign will be needed if Arsenal are to break their title drought.

High-flying Leicester may have been stalled by their loss at the Emirates Stadium two weeks ago, but the time for doubting their credentials has long since passed.

Goals win games, as they say (*sorry).
