Do Arsenal really have the attacking balance to win major trophies?

Arsenal’s attacking threat has been steadily increasing this season, with the north Londoners having netted more goals in the Premier League than anyone but Manchester City and Liverpool. They’ve scored nine goals in their last three top-flight outings, with four more added against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup and two against Basel in the Champions League this midweek.

Arsenal probably should have scored more on Wednesday, but the offensive patterns they conjured were a continuation of those which caused Hull, Chelsea and Forest so much trouble in recent weeks. If the finishing had been a little more precise, Arsene Wenger’s team could easily have come away from their group stage fixture with six or seven goals to their name.
