ARSENAL ARE STILL A STRIKER SHORT
Arsenal’s search for striker, still has not reaped any results. After a slow couple of games to start off the campaign, Arsene Wenger seemed to have found a solution to his problems up front as he has given the goal scoring responsibilities on Alexis Sanchez.
Arsenal have scored an impressive 16 goals in the opening 7 games and Alexis has scored 4 of those. But a somewhat dry exchange of play and overall a disappointing match has emphasised on the fact that Alexis is still more of a winger and that Arsenal are still actually short of a Henry-esque striker up front.
Arsenal had a total of 19 attempts and out of these only 3 were shots on target and one eventually went off the woodwork. Arsenal, in their typical fashion nearly made thrice as many passes as Burnley but their inability to kill the game off by creative penetrative chances and taking them nearly cost them 2 points.
With Olivier Giroud eagerly waiting in the sidelines, Wenger might well think about his options up front and should realize if the current set-up could with-stand the long and testing Premier league season.
