Arsenal failed to open their journey in the English Premier League this 2018/19 season, as the inaugural match against Manchester City last weekend ended in a 0-2 defeat. Team’s new coach Unai Emery received criticism from the club legend, Tony Adams, even the Spanish coach was judged incompetent in working.
As is known, Arsenal have indeed opened their journey in the 2018/19 Premier League season, Sunday night local time yesterday (12/8). They faced Manchester City on their homeland, the Gunners have missed when the game just entered the 14th minute, then the match ended with a landslide score of 0-2 victory over Pep Guardiola’s landing team.
Of course, the defeat was very disappointing for Arsenal’s fans. Not to mention, the fact that the club is handled by a new manager, Unai Emery. No wonder the criticism was directed at the former Sevilla manager. In fact, one of the legendary clubs, Tony Adams, said that Emery had worked incompetently since he was appointed Arsene Wenger’s successor six weeks ago.
“During this time Arsenal always played attack and open. For the past ten years, we have easily conceded. I want the new manager to fix that. But it’s the same. I am disappointed, I don’t know what he has done in these past six weeks. They got good results, but it was only pre-season. “Arsenal’s fans have been hoping to be a contender for the [Premier League] title, but this time the target is still very far,” told the former Arsenal captain to Talksport.
As for, in the next match in the Premier League, Arsenal themselves will face one of their city rivals, Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge on August 18.
