Unai Emery needs time to improve Gunners 1

Posted on August 13, 2018 by David Nugent

Obviously, Arsenal suffering a 2-0 defeat home on the opening day of the Premier League campaign is the ideal start to a campaign for the Gunners. However, the defeat must be put into perspective.

Arsenal were playing against arguably one of the best football teams that has ever graced the Premier League in Pep Guardiola’s City. It is no disgrace to suffer defeat, but it shows there is plenty of work for Emery to do to revive the Gunners.

Early days for Emery

The transition from 22 years of veteran boss Arsene Wenger to Emery was never going to be a simple one. The players have still only worked with the Spanish boss for a few months.

Arsenal fought valiantly at the weekend in more ways than one but in the end, they weren’t quite able to overcome the far superior Manchester City as they eased to victory in the first game of their Premier League title defence. The Gunners were never really able to create anything of substance against an efficient City side, and while they didn’t quite get blown out of the water, they never really felt like they were ‘in’ the game either.

Arsenal’s first Premier League game of the new season is officially in the books, and unfortunately, they weren’t able to overcome the rampant reigning champions Manchester City who ran away with a 2-0 victory. Whilst the Gunners had a few nice moments they never really threatened on the level that you’d expect in the opening game, but given that they were going up against one of the best EPL teams of all-time, that’s somewhat understandable.

Arsenal face a tough challenge today, as the Gunners host reigning Premier League champions Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners may have experienced a few difficult campaigns in the English top-flight. However, one facet of the north London side that has stayed stable is their form at home in the Premier League.

The Emirates Stadium a tough ground for opposition teams

The Gunners finished last season by winning seven of their eight games at the Emirates Stadium. The exception to that run was a 3-0 defeat by Sunday’s opponents Manchester City, who produced a sublime display in north London.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal begins a new era, as new boss Unai Emery takes charge of his first competitive game as Gunners boss. The Spaniard could not have asked for a tougher challenge for his first game, as Manchester City visit the Emirates Stadium.

There is a new positive atmosphere at the north London club. The signings of Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have improved the Gunners squad.

The Gunners finished sixth-place last season in the Premier League, having endured an inconsistent league campaign. Their final six games of the last season’s campaign summed-up their season, as they won three and lost three of their final six games.

Emery’s arrival could be bigger than any summer signing for Arsenal 0

The Premier League transfer window is now shut and Arsenal fans have cause for quiet content with the Gunners summer business. Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Stephan Lichtsteiner Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have all joined the Gunners during the transfer window.

However, the summer arrival of new boss Unai Emery cold a far big reaching impact than any of the clubs summer signings.

Arsenal spending small this summer

Arsenal has decided to take a cautious approach in the transfer market this summer. Some might argue that the Gunners have taken a cautious approach in the transfer market anyway in recent years.

The time for talk is almost over, as clubs up and down the country prepare themselves for the new season. Some are considered to be title contenders and others will be fearing relegation, but whatever the case may be, the unpredictability of English football is likely going to keep us all guessing until the very last day of the season. One club we’ve been keeping a particularly close eye on, shockingly enough, is Arsenal.

As the summer transfer window comes to an end and the twenty teams involved in the Premier League get ready to kickstart their season, it’s always fun to take a quick look back at what went down in the summer transfer window. Of course, some clubs were able to fare better than others but overall, most teams got what they wanted and the majority are heading into the season in a stronger position than they were back at the end of last season.

Deadline day exits more likely than signings 0

It seems that it is far more likely that there will exits from Arsenal rather than signings on transfer deadline day of the 2018 summer window. There has been talk of the Gunners signing Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, mainly on a loan deal. However, it seems that the deal is unlikely to happen, with just a few hours left until the deadline of 5 PM.

Players who could leave

Arsenal has plenty of players who are considered surplus to requirements. Spanish striker Lucas Perez has signed for West Ham for a fee of around £5million. The 29-year-old struggled for first-team football since his 2016 arrival from Deportivo La Coruna.

The Ian Wright query 0

Ian Wright, former Arsenal striker and general club legend, tends to find himself in the headlines more often than not. Whether it’s because of his overwhelmingly in-your-face shirts during the World Cup or his ‘out there’ opinions, Wright certainly knows how to draw the attention of a crowd – and that’s putting it mildly.

In recent weeks, he’s taken it upon himself to voice his opinions regarding several Arsenal Football Club matters. Two of the biggest are that the Stan Kroenke takeover is awful news for the club, and the other is that the Gunners’ days of challenging for the Premier League title are over. Those are both loaded subjects, to put it mildly, and it’s time for us to unpack them.
