Andrey Arshavin remains unhappy with his form at Arsenal. Robin van Persie has scored 33 goals in 38 games in all competitions for the club in 2011, with the more eye-catching statistic being his 28 in 27 Premier League matches.

"Speaking honestly, I think my performances for Arsenal have been average," Arshavin said. "I've done some good things but I don't assess my game on goals or assists - I look at the whole picture.

"Normally when I'm on the pitch, I take control of a game but I haven't really done that here. I'm an extra tool in the team rather than the main one, so it's been different."
