Robin Van Persie, the former Arsenal and Manchester United forward has said that Arsenal have not improved under new boss Unai Emery after the departure of his former coach Arsene Wenger.
Asked whether Arsenal are better now than when Wenger was in charge, van Persie said: “I don’t think so.
“I don’t think that Emery really connects with his players. I think they’re still weak on set pieces, that was back in my time still a problem to be honest.
“Everyone should feel responsible. Do you play zone or do you play man on man?
“I think when you’re struggling you should play man on man, because then you just pick your man then you are responsible for your man. It’s a one on one fight.
“Last weekend they again conceded from a corner kick. I said it a couple of weeks ago as well, Arsenal lose 12-15 points per season by set pieces and that should stop.
“You have to sort it out, you have to find away.
“You can see some players, and it’s not honest to judge the coach based on tonight, it’s based on the last couple of months and even the year before.”
