While we are not exactly in a crisis, we are just a couple of 0-0 draws away from being in one.

Despite playing easily the best football in the league, we have somehow found this inability to score goals. Frequently missing easy chances, should this problem not clear up soon, it could become a major problem.

Hleb agree’s.

‘I don’t know what is happening to us,’ said the Belarus international to the Daily Express.

‘Maybe the answer is from somewhere up above. I know that we play this beautiful football and there should be no stopping us from scoring.

‘I cannot answer why the goals are not going in. Maybe it is just fate. Of course it could be a problem for us if it keeps going,’ he continued, ‘but nothing is really wrong.

‘All we have to do is be more focused, more concentrated. We have to keep playing beautiful football – and once we are up there we have got to make the most of our chances.’

‘It’s not down to who scores them, whether it is the strikers, defenders or the midfielders, whoever. We create a lot of chances, who scores them – that’s not important, but we are not going to change.’
