Fabregas fears Gunners goal drought

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has admitted he is worried that a goal drought could dent the Gunners' title hopes, despite their free-scoring start to the season.

Fabregas’ ninth goal of the campaign helped Arsene Wenger's side seal a convincing 4-1 success at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, as the Londoners moved into second position behind leaders Chelsea.

The Emirates Stadium side have now hit the back of the net 36 times in their opening 11 league outings - an average of three goals a game - but Fabregas insisted he is is refusing to get carried away and is determined to ensure the side maintain their impressive form.

“We do worry about the goals coming to an end. We talk about what will happen if they stop,” he said.

“It is great when we are scoring so many goals and we have a threat all over the team, but we know that we have to keep that right the way through.

“There is no point scoring goals like we are until December and then it ends. That will not win the title.

“So the fear that the run will come to an end is keeping us focused because we want to win the title and we know we have to carry on.”
