Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has sent a warning to his attacking duo, Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez to improve their fortunes in front of goal. 

Arsenal host Liverpool next Friday in their next Premier League fixture, and Wenger knows that his side's three goals in their last four Premier League games won't cut it against Liverpool.

Wenger spoke candidly about his players after Arsenal's slender 1-0 win over Newcastle, where he sent a warning to his forwards. He said (via Football.London): "As we spoke about Sanchez last year, he scored 24, he’s on four at the moment. But he is still committed and he works hard.

"I feel if you look at his [Lacazette] record, it’s quite good. Especially at home. At home his scoring record is really good. Away from home, a bit less.


"But we have the chances, the quality of our game is there. But it’s true that at the moment, we cannot show it up with points."

Wenger's observation comes off the back of Arsenal's goal-shy behaviour in their recent run of games. Arsenal escaped a third successive draw thanks to a Mesut Özil wonder-goal. 

Özil's goal is a great illustration of the German's current great form, though the same cannot be said for his two teammates, Lacazette and Sanchez who both failed to score again.

Lacazette currently has eight goals to his name, with his last goal came in Arsenal's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United. Whereas, Sanchez has only four goals this campaign - a stark contrast to his fruitful campaign last season.
