Unai Emery tactics exposed: Arsenal rank 1st in the PL for three shocking stats, 4th in another

Arsenal manager Unai Emery’s poor work at the Emirates Stadium looks like being exposed as some truly damning stats emerge about his side’s stats since he took over.

The Gunners were known for being a bit of a soft touch and dodgy defensively under Arsene Wenger, but they at least played some stylish attacking football to make up for it.

Some shocking Arsenal stats under Unai Emery

Remarkably, the north London giants rank first in the Premier League for errors leading to goals, errors leading to shots and penalties conceded since Emery took over.

The Spanish tactician also has Arsenal fourth in the league for shots on target faced in that same time period.

This is far from good enough for a manager with a reputation for being extremely meticulous in his preparation and with supposedly so much eye for detail.

Some would argue Emery has inherited some poor players, with Granit Xhaka often shown to be a major liability with errors and rash tackles like the one that led to a penalty for Tottenham in the recent North London Derby.

Still, the Arsenal manager surely has to improve things fast or complains like these from fans are only going to get louder.
