Arsene Wenger: Arsenal must improve the quality of their build-up play.

Arsenal desperate to end goalless spell.

Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger says his side have to improve their all-round play if they are to return to scoring form in style.

The Gunners failed to score a goal in their last three Premier League games against Stoke City, Chelsea and Southampton, and Wenger is keen on his side ending the goal drought.

“Look, it’s not definite,” he said, quoted. “It is frustrating because we had some periods where we scored for fun and we have dried out recently so we have to correct that.

“Sometimes you have to go through spells like that. Sometimes when we win games we shoot three times at the goal and score three goals. [Against Southampton] we had all the chances - we must just continue to create them.

“Our style is offensive, to go forward and maybe we lost a little bit of our quality in the build-up over the longer period by losing people like Cazorla who are providers. We had to redress that.

“Goals are not only down to the strikers - it’s down to the quality of the way you create goal chances and the quality of the chances you create.”

Wenger added: “There are 14 games to go and that match will not decide it,” he said. “What is more important for us is to come back with a winning habit. We have lost only once [recently], and with 10 men - people forget that.

“So there are positives and negatives recently, but I think we were a bit unlucky in the last two home games.”
