'We need to finish with more conviction’

By Lloyd Webb

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal lacked conviction in their 0-0 draw against Southampton.

The Gunners were frustrated by the Saints on Tuesday night, with Fraser Forster producing a number of fantastic saves to deny the likes of Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Alexis.

"I think we have to look at ourselves and start to finish with a bit more conviction. The way we have took our chances was not good enough and that’s why we dropped two points"

Arsenal have failed to score in their last three league games and Wenger says his side need to improve in front of goal, starting against Bournemouth on Sunday.

“You expect their keeper to have a good game but I believe as well we had very poor finishing,” he told Arsenal Player. “It’s difficult to find a player in our team basically who had no chances today.

“We came out with a 0-0, with the experience we have in our team, that’s disappointing. It’s frustrating because we put a lot of energy into a game like that. We created a lot of chances of top quality and couldn’t finish.

"I think we have to look at ourselves and start to finish with a bit more conviction. The way we have took our chances was not good enough and that’s why we dropped two points.

"What is terrible is that our performances are not bad. That is worrying because with the quality of the performances we had, we didn’t take the points and that’s very difficult for the players to take as well.

“We put the energy in, we create chances but at the end of the day we come away with no goals. It’s very disappointing.

"The team is strong. We have shown, I believe, a great performance tonight, especially in the second half, but we couldn’t finish the game off.

"We have to look at ourselves and not be satisfied with that.”
