Van Persie gunning for more goals

Robin Van Persie has warned that Arsenal need to be more clinical in front of goal.

After a prolific start to the season, netting 15 in four outings, Arsenal have taken their foot off the gas and suffered defeats to both the Premiership’s Manchester sides.

“While there were lots of good things that we did in winning four games, there were a few bad aspects after that and we need to find the right balance to win matches like these.

“When you see the matches against Manchester United and Man City, we had many chances and still lost. So we need to look in the mirror and try to do things better”.

However, Van Persie is sure Arsenal have got everything else just right and it is simply a case of finding their scoring boots.

“In terms of creating chances, it's all good - the 4-3-3 formation really works.

“We've seen shots hitting the bar or the post, or just going wide, and perhaps could have had a bit more luck with refereeing decisions as well.”
