2. Be more clinical

Mikel Arteta's side has been statistically the most prolific team in the Premier League this season but has found it difficult to score at points. This has been evident over the last few games.

Arsenal underperformed in terms of xG in the game against Villa, having failed to score despite an xG of 1.87. This eventually cost the Gunners and led to defeat.

Despite the victory, the Gunners looked shaky in front of goal at times against Wolves. Mikel Arteta's side had 24 shots throughout the match and only scored twice. Their occasional sloppiness in attack almost cost them just before their opener when David Raya was forced to make a save to deny Wolves the lead.

Arsenal must look to be more clinical both against Chelsea and in future games in order to kill matches off sooner.
