Arsenal"s recent struggles continued with a 2-1 loss to Wolves which leaves them 14th in the Premier League table


A lack of creativity continues to hinder Mikel Arteta"s side and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is suffering as a result..

缺乏创造力继续阻碍着Mikel Arteta的阵营,因此Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang遭受了痛苦。

Arsenal devoid of creative sparkArsenal"s creative shortcomings grow more obvious by the week


Their best performances under Mikel Arteta have come in games against big-six rivals, games in which they have been able to sit back and play on the counter-attack, but when it comes to breaking down deep-lying opponents, the lack of imagination is alarming and so are the numbers

在Mikel Arteta的带领下,他们最好的表现是在与六大对手的新浪足球中进行的,他们能够坐下来反击,但要打败深层的对手,缺乏想象力令人震惊,数字也是如此

In the Premier League this season, only Fulham, West Brom, Burnley and Sheffield United - the bottom four sides in the table - have scored fewer goals than Arsenal (10)


The Gunners rank 16th for shots too (95), and only two places higher for expected goals (11.1)


It is striking how rarely they progress the ball through the centre of the pitch and the issue was plain to see against Wolves


Unable to find a way through the middle, Arsenal were left repeatedly funnelling the ball out to the flanks instead


From there, they attempted a remarkable total of 31 open-play crosses - the third-most by any Premier League side in any game this season


Damningly, only three of them even reached an Arsenal player


Those speculative deliveries had an air of hit-and-hope about them and the question for Arteta is where exactly in his squad he is going to find the creativity his side so sorely lacks


Thomas Partey has been brought in at great expense, but he is no playmaker

托马斯·帕特(Thomas Partey)被付出了巨大的代价,但他不是组织者

Mesut Ozil, meanwhile, is not even an option having been excluded from their Premier League squad

与此同时,厄齐尔(Mesut Ozil)甚至没有被排除在英超球队之外

The result is that Arsenal have only mustered eight shots on target across their last four Premier League games at an average of one every 45 minutes


It is not just the ability to pick killer passes that Arsenal seem to lack


In fact, there is an absence of spontaneity in general


Arteta is a hands-on coach known for the incessant instructions he barks at his players from the touchline, but might his side benefit from a little more freedom in the final third? Against Wolves, Arsenal only completed two dribbles over the course of the entire game


In total this season, only five Premier League sides have completed fewer


Dribbles are high-risk, of course, often a means of surrendering possession rather than creating danger, but playing it safe is getting Arsenal nowhere


They are in dire need of a spark


Aubameyang isolated and out of sorts A lack of creativity is not such a problem when you have a striker who only needs one chance to score, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks a long way short of the ruthless form that propelled Arsenal to FA Cup glory in August


Arsenal 1-2 Wolves - Match report and highlightsPremier League table | Fixtures | ResultsGet - All channels 15 a monthThe 31-year-old, scorer of 22 Premier League goals last season, has only netted once from open play in 10 appearances this time around, with that goal coming against Fulham way back in September on the opening day of the campaign


Since then, his only Premier League goal has come from the penalty spot against Manchester United


Arteta has attempted to remedy the problem by moving Aubameyang from his previous position on the left flank to the central striking role, demoting Alexandre Lacazette to the bench in the process, but his struggles continued against Leeds last weekend and it was a similar story against Wolves

阿特塔(Arteta)试图通过将奥巴梅扬(Aubameyang)从他先前在左翼位置上的位置转移到中锋位置,在此过程中将亚历山大·拉卡泽特(Alexandre Lacazette)降级为替补席,来解决这个问题,但上周末他与利兹(Leeds)的斗争仍在继续,这与狼队的情况相似

In total at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, and despite Arsenal having almost 70 per cent of the possession in the second half, Aubameyang only touched the ball 23 times


It was his fewest in any game all season and fewer, too, than any other player on the night


Aubameyang did not exactly receive an abundance of service last season, but the situation has worsened recently and the Wolves game showed his confidence has suffered


Twice in the second half, he spurned opportunities you would expect him to take, first when his uncharacteristically tame effort was cleared off the line, then when he sent a close-range header over from a rare accurate cross


A lack of service and a crisis of confidence


It"s a miserable combination


Defensive question marks too The Wolves game was a reminder that Arsenal"s issues are not limited to one end of the pitch


There was evidence of defensive improvement earlier this season - in fact they boasted the best defensive record in the Premier League after seven games - but standards have slipped rapidly in recent weeks and the shambolic defending for both Wolves goals underlined the problems


The defeat to Nuno Espirito Santo"s side comes just three weeks after they were torn apart by Aston Villa in their previous home game, and sandwiched between those two fixtures was the fortuitous goalless draw with Leeds in which Arteta"s men gave up 25 shots on their goal


Arsenal have not been helped by issues at centre-back, with David Luiz often unavailable, Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari also sidelined and William Saliba deemed unready for Premier League football, but it is a question of structure as well as personnel


Arsenal are simply too open, their defence exposed by gaps elsewhere in the side


It is down to Arteta to plug those gaps while simultaneously finding a way to make his side more potent in attack


It is a tall order, not least for a young coach still only at the start of his managerial career, but with a trip to north London rivals Tottenham, live on , next on the agenda, he has little time to waste
