It's a brand-new season, and on Arsenal Player we have a brand-new feature for you: The Breakdown.

After every weekend fixture, former Gunner Adrian Clarke dissects Arsenal's performance - home or away.

In this week's Breakdown, Adrian discusses:

  • Arsenal's rigid formation
  • the discipline of our wide men
  • Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla's link-up play
  • an improving showing in front of goal
  • the game's key flashpoint
  • Abou Diaby's performance

Log on to Arsenal Player every week to get your latest fix of The Breakdown.
