Fergie: I expect Arsenal to improve

He said: “They had really lost Henry in December, so I do not think they will suffer too much, his time had gone. I think Arsene knew that, there is no doubt about that.

“I expect Arsenal to improve. They have signed a right-back, midfielder and striker.

“They will be more consistent. The signing of a striker tells you where their problems were, they needed more goals. They will also have Adebayor and Van Persie back so they are not too bad, are they?”
