Freddie Ljungberg explains why Nicolas Pepe was axed for Arsenal’s draw against Norwich City. So of course, I have an opinion about how we can play and players. But I try to see it just like that, everybody has a fair chance.What I see in training and games, that’s what I’m going to judge it on.

[Freddie Ljungberg Says Arsenal Were ‘Scared’ During Defeat to Brighton] They [the players] look very short of confidence. In the first half they were scared to get the ball, scared to move. We didn’t show up in the first half. We had a chat at half-time, all of a sudden we look like the team we want to be. That’s how we have to play the whole game

[Freddie Ljungberg reveals why Martinelli, Pepe and Chambers start with Lacazette & David Luiz dropped] There’s a lot of games in December so there’s fatigue and stuff. I wanted to get some energy into the team so thought I’d shake things up a bit

[Martinelli will make his first start for Arsenal in the Premier League, having impressed in the Europa League, and Ljungberg expects him to take that form into domestic action] He’s done very well in Europa League games, scores goals, works hard so I think he will do really well

Pepe I thought did really well when I brought him on in the second half in the last game. I want him to be who he is. I want him to go one against one and be difficult to read. At the same time I want him to do his defensive work, that’s important, we’re playing away from home.

[On the decision to bring Chambers in for Luiz, he added] I think he’s been doing well, training really well, being competitive. When we were at Newcastle and had our away win he played

[Ljungberg wanted to make a change to try and brighten up a dull afternoon] We have a lot of talent but I wasn’t happy with the talent we put in. They are a top, top team. They are very good. But you still need to run. You need to put in an effort.

What I did here, I know they are young and some don’t have experience, some were making their Premier League debut, we had an 18-year-old winger playing at left-back. But, hey, they did really well away from home against Everton and dominated the game so we should be proud of that as a club
