Struggling Arsenal needed fresh start after Wenger - Emery

Struggling Arsenal needed fresh start after Wenger - Emery

Liverpool came runners up in the Europa League that season, and three-time victor Emery, whose Sevilla side beat Klopp's Reds in 2016, will hope Arsenal can go one better this term.

22 years of Arsene Wenger came to an end in June this year when the Frenchman left the Emirates, despite not really wanting to go, after more than two decades at the helm.

Emery has made changes defensively, deploying a higher and more aggressive pressing game that has been adopted surprisingly quickly by his players.

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

The last of Wenger's three Premier League titles came in 2003/04, claiming only FA Cup trophies and Community Shield titles in subsequent years. "I respect him a lot but, no matter how much information he gave me, I had to change things".

"Before Wenger arrived, Arsenal celebrated winning 1-0 and were based on defensive solidity", Emery said.

"Liverpool were without the Champions League, they had the Premier league and Europa League".

"But with time, you can only take care of technique and attacking freedom, losing your defensive structure".

"What I want is to unite both aspects and be more competitive". "The process with him in this global break is to finish training with us every day to start playing, little by little".

Arsenal lost to Manchester City and Chelsea in their opening two league games of the season and haven't lost since but face Spurs and Manchester United back-to-back at the beginning of December in their biggest tests since the opening games.

"He is looking well, with good performance, good feeling and I think he, today, is close to also playing with us".

And when asked what exactly needs to improve specifically, Emery said: "Everything".

"But we need time, we need work".

The Gunners have failed to win their last three Premier League outings, but Emery's side have managed to remain unbeaten following draws with Crystal Palace, Liverpool FC and Wolves.
