Arshavin likes the look of Gunners new style



Arsenal blogs

ANDREY ARSHAVIN says Arsenal’s new attacking formation is perfect for his style of play.

Arsene Wenger has switched his side to a 4-3-3 formation to accommodate the creative talents of Arshavin, Robin van Persie and Eduardo.

And the Russian, 28, admits he is relishing his new role in the Gunners’ front line.

Arshavin said: “Arsenal have changed their system this season and moved my position.

“I used to play on the left-hand side of a four-man midfield but we’ve gone to three in the middle and that has helped me become more of an attacking player.

“But we can always switch back to the old system if we have to because we have players who can be fluid and adaptable.

“We can move anywhere depending on the situation in front of us.

“If I see an opportunity I can exploit on the right-hand side of the pitch I’ll go over and take advantage of it.”
