Arsenal attacker Lukas Podolski has assured fans there's life after Robin van Persie.

Just as the Gunners won at Liverpool, Vann Persie was also on target on Sunday, scoring a hat-trick as Manchester United beat Southampton.

Podolski, an £11million signing from Cologne, said: "I won't say we will forget Robin van Persie because he is an amazing player.

"But the fans want to win every week and if we are successful in doing that, they will be positive about us. I've loved the way it has gone with Santi in training. I like the style of his football.

"All the time we work on this, one and two touches - and you could see that for the goals. But we've only played three games, so we must keep improving."
