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."
