Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher questions Arsenal’s progress under Unai Emery.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher claims Arsenal haven’t made any progress under Unai Emery since the Spaniard took charge.
Emery’s side has won just four away league games in their last 18 games on the road.
Their last league game ended in a 1-0 loss away at Sheffield United and Carragher is now claiming that the side isn’t doing better under the former Sevilla manager.
Arsene Wenger’s reign as Arsenal boss was brought to an end after fans unrest with many demanding a new manager.
Emery was brought in but fans have been far from impressed with what he has done at the club.
Caragher also doubts if the club has made any significant progress despite reaching the Europa League final last season.
“Wenger’s determination to build a team of technically sound footballers was undermined in his later years by his inability to create a side as adept without the ball.
That is where I most expected improvement under Emery. To be most damning, the bad habits have not been eradicated, they have spread.
When a top-four finish was in the club’s grasp at the end of last season, a 3-2 defeat by this weekend’s opponents Crystal Palace finished that ambition.” the former Liverpool defender told the Daily Telegraph.
Emery’s team are just nine games into the new season. The fans will be hoping to see some improvement sooner rather than later.
