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 fluid movement
  • the role of Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson
  • Gervinho's deployment as a 'false 9'
  • the closing down of Rickie Lambert
  • Lukas Podolski's superb distribution
  • the 'positive energy' in the team

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