Arsenal Better Now But Too Tactical Than The Past - Patrick Vieira

Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira believes that Arsene Wenger has better players now than the time of his invincible team and should find a way of winning games.

Arsene Wenger which has been criticized and campaigned against in the last season saw his team totally dominated and beaten by Liverpool four Nil and will face more pressure if results are not achieved.

Patrick Vieira who had captained the London side in the past refused to compare Arsenal team in the past with the  present and see's much quality in the present team.

“The current Arsenal team, of course they want to win games. You don’t go onto the field not wanting to win. It’s just that the characteristic of the players is different now than it used to be before" He said
“I’m not one to say our generation was better than this generation. It doesn’t make sense to compare the two generations because we are in a different period. The quality of the players are completely different.

“The team in our generation were more physical but this generation are better football players - there’s no doubt about that. So the balance is what Arsenal need to find.

“If you look at Arsenal today I really enjoy watching them play, they play some really good football - but that is not enough to win football matches or to win competitions. But in our time we were winning and we had the strength to not play well but somehow manage to win the game 1-0.

“But you’re not going to tell me [Mesut] Ozil is not a leader? You’re not going to tell me [Alexis] Sanchez is not a leader? You’re not going to tell me Petr Cech is not a leader. There’s leaders in the team to challenge and they have the experience to win matches.

“But I think it’s just the balance between players are different. If you look at our time, we managed to win games but sometimes we didn’t play well. But we had this physicality to deal with certain situations.

“Now they are playing well, playing some really good football but they don’t win. So that means the balance between physicality and technical creativity maybe needs to be looked at.”

Arsenal will face Bournemouth after the international break at home and having faced back to back defeats, the Gunners will be striving to move upwards from their present 16th position on the Premier League table.
