0:15 Ljungberg admits he was caught unaware by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s toilet break as Arsenal lost to Brighton
“[I decided not to] pick all the young players that are going to change the future of this club. I made a conscious choice to put down the older players to take the responsibility and change the games.”
Asked if he needs his big players to step up against West Ham, Ljungberg added: “We do. We need to change this downward spiral.
“It is going to be a great occasion but maybe that is good for our players.
“They can relax a little bit and concentrate on the game and hopefully do what they did when we came out for the second half [against Brighton].”
