Wenger: We will recover from RVP loss

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger maintains Arsenal will soon find the right formula for attacking life without Robin van Persie after being left frustrated by Saturday's goalless draw against Sunderland.

Holland forward Van Persie has joined Manchester United in a £24million deal following a public statement earlier in the summer that he would not be signing a new deal. The loss of their skipper - whose 30 Barclays Premier League goals last season dragged the Gunners into third place - is clearly a major blow both psychologically and tactically.

Although summer signing Lukas Podolski showed plenty of the needed workrate, Arsenal lacked a cutting edge in front of goal with fellow new recruit Oliver Giroud missing a glorious chance. Wenger said: "I feel that Podolski is not [physically] ready yet, but he has the quality, and Giroud you could see has a presence when he is on the pitch in this position."
