The Gunners are scoring goals for fun in the Premier League.

David Seaman has waved off concerns that Arsenal still need a striker and has praised the Gunners for spreading goals throughout the team. 

Away from the midweek Champions League disappointment, Mikel Arteta's side have scored 21 goals in their last five Premier League outings, and last time out his five past relegation-threatened Burnley.

Their displays have seen concerns that they lack an out-and-our striker be dismissed, and talking on his podcast Seaman Says, proudly sponsored by Parimatch, the Gunners legend says the fact that goals are coming from throughout the team proves they don't need a new striker. 

“When you look at the scoreline for Arsenal at Burnley, it was another load of goals – 5-0 – and all without a striker!” Seaman said

“We were all talking previously about how Arsenal need a striker, they need a striker, they need a striker… And yet they're scoring so many goals at the moment without one. There's even a new Arsenal song about who scored all the goals, who put the goals into Burnley’s net – and it’s half the team doing it!
“It's great because there’s been a lot of different goalscorers for Arsenal in recent games. You're looking at Bukayo Saka, you're looking at Martin Odegaard, Leandro Trossard, Kai Havertz… a lot of them are now chipping in with goals. In games like the Burnley and West Ham matches, it’s not just one player that’s scoring, so it's looking really good for Arsenal at the moment – and that's without Gabriel Jesus being fit.
“And then Eddie Nketiah even comes on for the last 20 minutes or so at Burnley and he doesn't get in amongst the goals. It's all the other guys on the pitch that are scoring that aren’t strikers, so it is looking really good for Arsenal.”
