Tony Cascarino On Andrey Arshavin

Tony Cascarino On Andrey Arshavin

Tony Cascarino, pundit for the New Football Pools on Andrey Arshavin.

'Andrey Arshavin`s 4-goal haul at Anfield has brought him to public attention after a relatively low-key start to his Arsenal career. The Russian has fitted in pretty well and scored a few goals which is not overly surprising as his style links perfectly with the Gunners style of play. In fact, both the player and the club look made for each other.

Arshavin is a player who likes to pass and move but can also dribble. We also learnt from his performance on Tuesday night at Anfield that he can shoot too. I wasn`t sure where he`d play for Arsenal, whether he`d be on the left or more central but he looks comfortable playing a similar role to the one Robert Pires held at the club.

The little Russian has a bit of everything to his game apart from the fact he doesn`t do much defensively. Then again, I am not sure that`s something Arsene Wenger looks for in his wide men as I don`t remember Pires or Marc Overmars tracking back too often. Wenger prefers to concentrate on what they offer offensively and as we`ve seen, Arshavin offers a lot.

Some players suit clubs like Tim Cahill at Everton whose game fits perfectly with the team`s style. The same can be said of the Russian at Arsenal. I can certainly see Arshavin staying for 4 or 5 years and like Pires enjoying a very successful Gunners career.'

"relatively low-key start to his Arsenal career". 2 goals, 5 assists, our player of the month for March previous to that game. I hope all our signings can have such low-key starts
