The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told Arsenal FC News that he expects improvements within the strikers at the club in the next few matches. Arsene Wenger decided to sell the star striker Robin van Persie for £ 24 million and brought in two players in the form of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud for the same amount of money. However, the new look strike force has not been able to make the necessary impact in the opening two matches of the season for Arsenal. Arsenal have opened the new season with two 0-0 draws against Sunderland and Stoke city. This has put them in a disadvantage for the Premier league title race even before it has begun.
However, the manager has expressed his confidence that his strikeforce will start finding the back of the net sooner rather than later. He has said that it is a matter of finding the right formation and personnel to go with the formation in order to get the best out of the two strikers. Wenger has praised the attitude of the midfielder Santi Cazorla, who arrived for around £ 15 million. The Spaniard has been the only bright star for Arsenal in these two matches, as he has created a lot of opportunities for the strikers.
“Offensively we still have some work to do because we missed a bit of accuracy in the final third in our movement and in our passing. We are used to finding each other in the final third and there’s something missing but I still think we should have won the game 1-0. You have to give credit to Stoke. They defended well and have experience at the back and are a very strong team defensively,” said after the 0-0 draw with Stoke city during the weekend, which was the second consecutive goalless draw for Arsenal.
