Arshavin Struggles To Capture Form But Is Arsenal The Place To Recapture It?

Russian international Andrey Arshavin has been thrown into the spotlight after seemingly being unable to recapture the form that he had demonstrated during the previous Premier League season.

The knock on effect of that drop in form has seen the midfielder see himself suffer criticism from fans and pundits alike and it seems that even the player is struggling to be able to figure out the reasoning for the drop in performance.

Arshavin said “The reason (for the poor form)? I don’t know. Maybe I’m just getting old.”

Although it seems that manager Arsene Wenger is willing to stand by Arshavin as he looks to find his form once again, it seems that the battle is not just to be won on the playing field, the player admitting that his confidence has taken a huge knock.

Arshavin told The Sun newspaper “Now when I get the the ball, I begin to think ‘should I try and trick an opponent? Or if I do, will I lose the ball? And what if I make a pass? Won’t they think that I am trying to get rid of the ball?’”

The interview with the newspaper seems to show a player who is struggling to get to grips with his problems and that could continue to put pressure on the player as he looks to battle his way back to form, but is Arsenal the ideal place for that to happen?

Arsene Wenger seems to offer the player a lot of support in terms of selecting the out of form midfielder within the starting line up but with the Premier League title still up for grabs, just how long will that continue to happen? Especially after the recent form of the club top scorer Sami Nasri.

Will he remain at the club to fight for his place or would a fresh start be a better option?
