Unai Emery Reveals The One Thing Arsenal Lacked Under Arsene Wenger

  • There are questions over Mesut Ozil's future at Arsenal

Laurent Koscielny is close to start with the group and start, little by little, taking minutes.

In an interview with Spanish media outlet Marca, Arsenal head coach Emery said: "I met once with him, and little else". Arsenal was in decline. First, our idea is to start with the Under-23s, but also, these two weeks training with us, I am looking at him.

Similarly, Lucas Torreira came off the bench in the first five Premier League games this season but is now a guaranteed starter.

Bournemouth will have been grateful for the recent global break, a chance to regroup and watch the Uefa Nations League following two back-to-back defeats in the league before a crucial home fixture against Unai Emery's Arsenal.

The Gunners have slipped to fifth in the Premier League table after a run of three straight draws, putting them three points behind fourth-place Tottenham ahead of Sunday's trip to Bournemouth. We had to stop this, and begin climbing.

After Bouremouth, Arsenal will travel to Ukraine to face Vorskla on Thursday before the North London derby just three days later.

He then spoke to the press, some of whom were in the room with him - and that's when he started on his list of grievances. But on Thursday, as he has previously , Trump defended Riyadh and cast doubt on the US intelligence community's findings.

"But the Gabon forward has assured supporters he is doing everything he can to be available to Unai Emery for Sunday's game at Vitality Stadium".

Finally, though, Unai Emery has managed to revive the fate of the club and now it looks like the Gunners will finally be back to playing Champions League football next season.

"At the same time, every competition where there's a title up for grabs is important and that counts for the two domestic cup competitions as well".

"We want [to finish in the top four] but it's not easy". We want the team to transmit things.

"We came to an Arsenal that hadn't beaten any of the top six and, while we still haven't done so yet, they also struggled to win away from home at all and we have already improved in that area", Emery said.
