Arsenal caretaker manager Ljungberg: Team has made strides under me

Arsenal caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg feels he hands the team to Mikel Arteta in good shape.

The Swede was speaking after their 0-0 draw at Everton.

Ljungberg said, "For me personally I want to win. I feel we have taken strides in how we want to play football. West Ham away was the first time we won away from the first day of the season. We now had our second away game here. I want to keep possession, I want to wear opponents down and I feel like we did that well in the first half, but that make a difference in the second half. I felt like we played through the middle quite well sometimes.

"We had some clear chances - especially Auba's from the corner - that we need to score. Then hopefully we'd have won the game. I liked that we dominated the game. I put a very, very young side out as well and they fought so hard. I wanted them to win but at the end of the day it's a difficult place to come and they beat Chelsea here, they did well against Manchester United. Well done to the boys, it's a point."
