Rosicky - Arsenal's adjustments have paid off.

Czech Republic international Tomas Rosicky reckons the reason why Arsenal are doing better against the bigger teams is because they have changed their tactical approach.

In previous seasons, Arsene Wenger's side weren’t overly impressive against the elite clubs but it's been a different case this season with key wins over Manchester City at the Etihad, Manchester United at Old Trafford [in the quarter-final of the FA Cup] and Liverpool most recently at the Emirates.

They still have Chelsea to play in the league before heading to Manchester United and Rosicky is convinced their new approach will help see them through the difficult games.

“It’s nice to see that we won [against Liverpool] in a convincing manner,” the 34-year-old told Arsenal Player.

“We know we can beat the big teams so that was nothing new - we wanted to win and the performance was good as well.

“We changed some stuff slightly in our preparation for these games. We’re doing a little more tactical work and we changed some stuff against the big teams.

“I don’t want to go into the details but there were some adjustments and it’s paid off for us. Recently we’ve been successful against the big teams but we still have to play Chelsea and Manchester United, so we would like to carry on like that.

“You can see the confidence is coming out of the players after a good run like we are on at the moment. You can see it on the pitch when you watch us play.

"We are not finished with this run, we will continue it so we have to continue working and working hard every day in training.”
