Arteta: Arsenal not thinking about signing a striker

Mikel Arteta has admitted Arsenal have been underperforming in front of goal - but insists they are not thinking of signing a striker in January.

Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah started in the 2-2 draw at home to Tottenham on Sunday but both came in for criticism after failing to find the scoresheet.

Arsenal have scored 11 Premier League goals compared to an expected goals total of 11.38 this season, but Arteta said: "There's various ways to score goals and we are scoring goals.

"But we should have scored many more with the chances we have created."

However, despite reports suggesting Arteta is keen to sign Ivan Toney when he returns from his suspension in January, the Arsenal boss said when asked about signing a striker: "We're not thinking at all about that.

"We have really good players up front. It's true that right now we have some injuries. We will continue with the players we have."
