Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has demanded speed from his players especially the forwards inside the 18-year box to help them create more chances and score copious goals this season.
Wenger is unhappy with his side’s return of only one goal in their opening three Barclays Premier League fixtures and he has charged his wards to ‘play quicker’ in the final third of the pitch, be more incisive in order to find more of a cutting edge against opponents.
“We have to play quicker, be more incisive, combine quicker in the final third and we work hard on that,” Wenger said ahead of the Gunners’ trip to St James’ Park tomorrow.
“We create chances, but at the moment, we analyse well after the game the number of chances and the number of expected goals we should score with the chances we create.
“At the moment we have a little deficit between the chances we create and the number of chances we score.”
