sport news Arsenal's is ineffective on wing, Mikel Arteta needs ...

As Arsenal struggled to find the breakthrough early on against Leicester - despite dominating proceedings - their fans were taking to social media predicting what was about to come.

That prediction? A Jamie Vardy 1-0 winner late on after coming on as a substitute to terrorise Arsenal's defence once more.

Vardy loves a goal against Arsenal. He has now scored 11 times against the Gunners. Only compatriot Wayne Rooney has scored more against them, with 12 to his name.

Sunday's outcome was far too predictable for many Arsenal fans who have watched their side week in, week out recently. 

While Mikel Arteta has made the Gunners a lot tighter at the back shipping just seven goals from their first six matches - only Aston Villa have conceded less with five - he is struggling to find the right balance up the other end of the pitch.

And it has been a problem for a while now for a team that used to torment defences under legendary former manager Arsene Wenger thanks to their scintillating football.

Arsenal were far too laboured in attack once again on Sunday as Leicester executed their game-plan to perfection under Brendan Rodgers, who is making a habit of big scalps.

There was hope his pace and ruthlessness in front of goal would add another dimension to Arsenal's attack on the wing but if anything, the strikeforce's balance is now all over the place.

After scoring a to open his account to the new Premier League season, the Gabon star put pen to paper on a new lucrative deal that will see his initial wage rise to £250,000 per week, while further bonuses and loyalty payments could take it beyond £350,000.

But since he committed his future to Arsenal, has failed to find the net in the last five Premier League matches - the first time that has happened in his Gunners' career. After the same stage last term, he had six in six.

And on the assist front, he isn't faring any better. He is under-performing in that department, too. Other than creating the goal for Alexandre Lacazette against West Ham early on in the campaign, he hasn't shown much creativity for team-mates.  

And this should rightly alarm Arsenal supporters - if their talisman isn't scoring or creating goals,
