Video: Arteta appears under pressure about his side’s finishing

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side put in over 30 crosses into the box against Tottenham yesterday, but failed to get on the scoresheet.

The manager admits that his side seems to need ‘a lot of chances’ before they can score a goal, but claims that if we ‘generate’ as many chances every week that we will ‘win football matches’.

Who is the weakest link at present in the line-up? Are the strikers low confidence proving to be the issue at present?

    Granit Xhaka is the weakest link at the moment.

      Xhaka,Bellerin, Willian, Laca and Auba, not necessarily in that order.I know I am not qualified to give our Manager advice, but I want Arteta to succeed and I would encourage him to simplify his tactics which may have worked at Man City, where he was dealing with skilful, creative players, but not at Arsenal, who are lacking in that area.We need to get back to basics, and as a start our RB needs to be told that his primary role is to defend.There have been dozens of occasions this season when Holding has been left in a two against one situation as a result of Ballerina forrays upfield.As far as Xhaka is concerned, he is the other common denominator in our sad decline and should not figure in what is a vital match against Burnley.My plea to MA is to play a simple 4-3-3 system and to exclude Xhaka, Bellerin and Willian.

    Arteta, Xhaka, and Willian are the weakest link in this team. They must go

    Why on earth is Arteta acting this way, I’ve always admired Arteta but why does he find it hard to use this youngsters, he used only Willock, who was making runs where there was no one to pass to,

    He would have used Maitland-Niles to help cover for Partey and reduce he’s stress, instead it was Xhaka, finally causing a reoccurring injury for Partey,

    This youngsters need consistency to perform,

    At this junction, I think Arteta has no clue, if Lampard trusted his teenagers to play, why is Arteta’s difficult to allow,
    We have Willock, Smith, Balogun, Saliba, Nelson, Azeez and Niles, all this guys have strength and pace.

    What a shame. Xhaka couldn’t even move, Ceballos was dancing round, Aubameyang was lazing away, willian was a total shamble, Bellerin too cute to be stained.😰😪😭😭😭😭,

    If only zags was beside Lacazette.

    Arteta lacks the basic understanding of the game. He just have to do himself a favour by resigning. Its a total embarrassment for reputation. His integrity is dwindling like Mark Hughes and Tony Adams. Managing top clubs is not for them
