Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says the Premier League goals spree is due to the standard of strikers currently in England.

Szczesny was in goal for the 8-2 ­hammering by ­Manchester United and last Sunday’s sensational 5-3 win at ­Chelsea. He also saw ­Manchester City’s ­astonishing 6-1 win at Old Trafford.

But while fingers are ­being pointed at the men at the back, ­Szczesny declared: “The ­reason is the quality of players at the top teams at the ­moment.

“We have Robin van ­Persie, Manchester City have Sergio Aguero and David Silva, and ­Manchester United have their front men as well.

“It is the quality of the ­attacking players that has been important. You look at the number of goals that are flying in and that shows how good the ­players are in the Premier League at the moment. It is as good as ever.”
