It pains me to try and help arsenal in any way but i'm all about the community so here goes:
What preferences do sterling and sanchez have? Are they trying to cut inside all the time and falling out of the equation as your tactics seem to be all forward momentum? Try playing wellbeck a little bit deeper, he has the pace to still get beyond their back four but without being offside ALL the time (a problem i had with him for England to be honest, too eager by half!).

Setting the team instructions to 'pass into the box' or something like that causes your team to take more considered action and less errant runs, could also be worth exploring 'clear to the wings' since clearing the ball forwards really isn't working out for you ;)

Sadly, some teams are just cursed... i'm a Leeds fan so just think how i feel in real life!
