#2 Arsenal’s slow start will only lead to more questions

Alexis Sanchez
Arsenal were unimaginative in the final third

Much was made about Arsenal’s defeat to Liverpool at the Emirates last weekend. So coming into the game against the champions, which had yielded a tally of 10 goals over two fixtures, one would have expected at least a couple of goals. The clean sheet that the game may have overshadowed the defensive fragilities that still exist but the display on the attacking front was again indecisive, to say the least.

The absence of an out and out striker again left the midfield making wide passes and Arsene would do well to address this problem at the earliest. Late on in the game, when Walcott had a flurry of chances which were all squandered, it only seemed to enhance the feeling.

It is more the lack of mental strength that currently ails the squad, rather than the technicalities. Arsene Wenger, who has the most control as a manager may realise that patience can only last a limited amount of time.
