ART’S INTO ARSE FILMS
I’m warning Lu – I can’t be stopped! New Gunner learns from videos
LUIS SUAREZ has warned Premier League defenders: You’ll never work me out. The Uruguay hitman
has been a massive hit since joining Liverpool in the January transfer window.
And he is not worried that opposition players will try to understand his trickery and prevent him from grabbing goals.
He said: “When a defender studies you, it almost makes it easier because you just don’t do what he expects you to.
“If he thinks you are going to go to your right, you go to your left and so on – you just keep switching it round so you are hard to read.
“It’s harder for the defender because he can’t know what you are going to do.” MIKEL ARTETA has been watching videos of Arsenal to prepare himself for his new life as a Gunner.
The Spaniard probably fastforwarded his way through the 8-2 defeat at Manchester United last month – just like the Red Devils did to the Gunners defence.
The deadline day signing from Everton said: “Hopefully I will not take long to adapt.
“You need to meet new characters, new personalities and new players with different abilities, so you need to pick that up as soon as possible to get an understanding on the pitch.
“I have been watching a few videos and have got some work done before training. Hopefully that will help me.”
The Spaniard was prised from the Toffees to replace Cesc Fabregas as the Gunners’ midfield playmaker.
And he is set for an instant debut on Saturday when Swansea come to the Emirates Stadium.
Arteta added: “I can’t wait to play there, I think it’s an unbelievable stadium. I’m so excited.
“I have always been a big admirer of the Arsenal philosophy, the way they play, the way they do the job.
“It’s always exciting watching Arsenal play. In England there is no better team to watch than Arsenal.”
Thomas Vermaelen has had surgery on his left ankle and will be sidelined for at least a month.
The Belgium defender, who missed eight months of last season with an Achilles injury on his right foot, suffered his latest setback in the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Udinese on August 24.
He will miss the north London derby at Tottenham on October 2 and the club’s first two Champions League group stage matches.
Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has annoyed England by deciding to switch allegiances and play for Ghana.
The 19-year-old was born in Africa but has played for the Three Lions at youth level.
