Nicolas Pepe has revealed Freddie Ljungberg has made changes to training and tactics since the exit of Unai Emery.

Arsenal parted ways with Emery last month amid rumours the head coach had lost the trust of his players, who were confused by his tactical demands.

Ljungberg’s appointment is yet to yield any significant upturn in results, but Arsenal’s record signing insisted changes have been made.

‘There have been some changes schedule-wise in terms of the training, Ljungberg has his own way of dictating training,’ he said.

‘Obviously he has already shared his vision.

‘There have been a few tactical changes, but it takes time for everything to settle.’

A 2-1 defeat to Brighton last week piled more misery on Arsenal, with the Gunners just four points above the relegation zone in the Premier League.

Arsenal’s top four hopes appear to be dead following a dismal spell of results and Pepe addressed his side’s recent woes on the pitch.

‘Obviously it is a frustrating situation for us, but it is nothing new [for me],’ said Pepe.

‘When I was at Lille we had a bit of the same, we went ten, eleven games without a win and obviously this adds to the pressure.

‘We know that our fans have a lot of expectations from us.’
