FA Cup: Van Persie criticizes Arsenal after 2-1 win against Sheffield

Former Arsenal player, Robin Van Persie has reacted to the 2-1 win the club had over Sheffield in the FA Cup.

Two goals from Nicolas Pepe and Dani Ceballos booked a spot for Arsenal in the Semi-final of the competition.

Describing Arsenal's performance in the game, Van Persie said that the club failed to create enough chances.

“I was expecting more [from Arsenal] to be honest,” Van Persie told BT Sport.

“They did not create a lot of chances – only two in the first half and not enough.

“A great goal from Ceballos got them the win, but it was not outstanding, no.”

Van Persie added: “You can see that this team is not fully connected yet.

“If you look at the connection from the defence, to midfield, to strikers, it is not moving as one.

“But I do believe that if you give them time, and he [Mikel Arteta] should get all the time he needs, I do believe that he can get it right".
