Andrey Arshavin: I've Not Been Playing Well

Andrey Arshavin has conceded his recent performances in an Arsenal shirt have been substandard.

The diminutive Russian was a revelation after joining the Gunners last season, and despite a return of four league goals this term, Arshavin believes he has not been playing consistently well.

"Only sometimes have I shown my full skills and I'm not sure why that is," he told the Evening Standard.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has experimented with playing Arshavin in a variety of positions, but the playmaker insists this has not affected his form.

"It doesn't matter where I play, on the right side or the left, I don't think I've played that well," he added.
