Wenger - We showed we can share goals

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal have shown they can share the responsibility for scoring.

Robin van Persie netted the lion's share of the Gunners' goals last season with Theo Walcott (eight) the closest to the Dutchman's top-flight tally of 30.

The balance has shifted since Van Persie left last summer, so much so that Arsenal's class of 2012/13 are only the fourth squad in Premier League history to have four players reach double figures.

Walcott leads the way with 14 while new signings Santi Cazorla (12), Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud (both 11) have weighed in regularly to become the first Arsenal players to score 10 league goals in their debut season since Thierry Henry in 1999/2000.

"We lost Van Persie [last summer] and, after that, it's very difficult to find a player who will score 35 goals," Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"But when a team has quality, it always finds a different way. We have players like Walcott, Podolski, Giroud and Cazorla who can score goals and that's what happened."
