Arshavin tells Arsenal to improve confidence levels

Andrei Arshavin believes Arsenal need to gain confidence and improve their character if they are to compete with the best.

The Russian, who joined Arsenal from Zenit St Petersburg in January, is enjoying life with the north London side. But he feels they must believe in themselves to improve their chances of ending a trophy drought which stretches back to 2005 - citing August's defeat by champions Manchester United at Old Trafford as an example.

He explained: ''We must improve our character. When we played Manchester United this season, they just showed character and it was enough to beat us. We must have confidence in each other.

''We are very friendly off the pitch but we must be stronger and trust in ourselves a little bit more. We must believe more. The confidence is coming but sometimes it seems to me we don't have enough.''

Arshavin insists he is happier playing football which is pleasing to the eye.

The 28-year-old continued in the Daily Telegraph: ''Arsenal play beautiful football. If I was in a team that kicked the ball long and I had to run, I would never smile. When you play against Birmingham or Blackburn, they play very simple. Long ball, fight.

''If you have strong defence, no problem. They intercept the ball and we start to play good football.''

However, he added: ''Chelsea play very defensively - but if I know after a season I have a trophy, okay - I am ready to play football like Chelsea. In modern football you must get results.''
