• ‘Let’s go for it, let’s express ourselves,’ says Arteta
  • Arsenal without a goal in the top flight for 476 minutes

Mikel Arteta accepts Arsenal must work out how to channel the freedom of their Europa League performances into a Premier League campaign that has seen them turn out largely uninspiring fare.

Arsenal have not scored a top-flight goal in open play for 476 minutes, a run that stretches back to 4 October. They have endured no such problems in Europe, scoring 12 times in their four Group B games including three in a fine second-half performance at Molde on Thursday. While the standard of opposition has been markedly different, Arteta believes the challenge is to release the shackles against sides such as Wolves, who visit the Emirates on Sunday.
