Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor admits he is unhappy with his Gunners strike ratio this season and is keen to score more goals.

"I know I have missed some chances and need to do a bit more, but that is football - there is no player who scores 10 times out of 10, not even Pele."

Quotes of the week

The Togo international has found the back of the net 12 times this term with eight of those coming in league action.

Adebayor helped himself to a hat-trick at Blackburn earlier this season, meaning he has scored just once in his last seven appearances for Arsene Wenger's side.

The 24-year-old now admits he wants to convert more chances, but concedes there is no player in the world who is perfect in front of goal.

Not happy

"To be honest, no [I am not happy], because I am a striker and I have only scored 12 goals up to now," said Adebayor on his form.

"I know I have missed some chances and need to do a bit more, but that is football - there is no player who scores 10 times out of 10, not even Pele.

"For me the most important thing is to keep believing that I can do it and keep helping my team-mates to win games.

"That is what we are here for and I think at the moment I am doing that quite well."

Van Persie

While Adebayor has struggled somewhat, his strike partner Robin van Persie has been on fire, form that has not gone unnoticed.

"At the moment, he is playing really well, scoring and setting goals up which is great for us," he continued.

"The number of assists shows that we are functioning quite well - we have quite a few and that can only help us reach our target."
