Harsh words from Arshavin for Arsenal team-mates

Andrey Arshavin is critical of his Arsenal side for their lacklustre display against Chelsea at the weekend which saw the Gunners crash 4-1 at home. The Russian, who missed the game through illness, told the Daily Mail, "Arsenal played properly only in the starting 15 or 20 minutes.

"After that, there was a feeling that it wasn't an important match but some ordinary training session.

"We woke up only after getting a goal back but that wasn't enough. Chelsea managed to convert their chances and we didn't - they were more skilful."
