Gallas admits to below-par performances

Arsenal captain William Gallas has confessed to a lack of form so far for the Gunners this season.

Despite weighing in with some crucial European goals - including a last-gasp equaliser in the opening Champions League game in Kiev, the centre-half has often been found wanting in defensive duties, particularly from set-pieces.

Speaking in the third person about himself, he said: "I can say we have not seen the Gallas from 2006 this term so far.

"In a few matches, I have not been so good," he told L'Equipe.

"With the French team in Sweden and Austria, I was not very good at some moments.

"I would close my eyes if I would say I am strong. That would mean I don't recognise I did have a few bad performances - as recently with my club against Hull City. Maybe I feel a little tired."

Gallas added: "Do I experience the most difficult period since I joined Arsenal? We could say yes.

"Above all I miss consistency. One match is good, the other one is not so good. However, I am doing everything to get to my best again."
