    Arsenal ‘working a lot harder’ under Emery, says Iwobi

    Alex Iwobi has revealed that Arsenal are ‘working a lot harder’ under new manager Unai Emery than Arsene Wenger. After a sloppy start under the new gaffer with back-to-back losses against Manchester City and Chelsea, the Gunners have started flourishing. On Thursday, the north Londoners clinch their fourth consecutive win with a 4-2 thumping of Ukrainian side Vorskla in a Uefa Europa League game at the Emirates Stadium. And the Nigeria international who played a significant role in the tie has disclosed that the team is gradually adjusting to the ‘new ideas’ from their boss. “He's a new manager, a new system," Iwobi told ESPN. "Like I said, we are buying in to new ideas so it will take a bit of time but we're slowly getting there. "Obviously we are winning games now, we just have to keep being consistent and keep on pushing. "He demands a lot, we are working a lot harder in training, running a bit more. "But as you can see, we are buying into his ideas and we are enjoying our time with him. "We are not going to dwell on the past, we are always looking forward to the next game. "We learn from out mistakes like we have done. "We have got four wins on the bounce now so we have just got to keep on going keep this momentum going and try to get as many wins as we can, like I'm saying." Arsenal will be looking to continue with the momentum when they lock horns with Everton in Sunday’s Premier League outing.  

  • Leno will get more chances, says Emery

    Bernd Leno has been promised more starting opportunities by Arsenal boss Unai Emery after the goalkeeper aired his frustrations over a lack of playing time. Following his reported €22 million (£19.8m/$25.8m) move from Bayer Leverkusen in July, Leno made his Gunners debut in Thur...

    Leno will get more chances, says Emery

    Bernd Leno has been promised more starting opportunities by Arsenal boss Unai Emery after the goalkeeper aired his frustrations over a lack of playing time. Following his reported €22 million (£19.8m/$25.8m) move from Bayer Leverkusen in July, Leno made his Gunners debut in Thursday's 4-2 Europa League win over Vorskla. Although many expected the German's arrival would see Petr Cech's position usurped, Emery has stuck with the 36-year-old in the Premier League. Cech has kept his place despite an indifferent start to the campaign, which has been blighted by suggestions he is not suited to Emery's approach of playing out from the back, something Leno was renowned for at Leverkusen. Leno gave an interview in the wake of the Vorskla win in which he claimed he had expected to be starting every week in the Premier League, and while Emery is unable to make such a promise at this time, he did insist further opportunities will be forthcoming. "When you start the pre-season, you have 25 players and you need passion with every player, and above all with the young players or the new players," Emery told reporters on Friday. "Their experience is very important, like other things, to play each match in the Premier League because the competition is stronger. "With Leno, we are very happy. He played his first match in the first XI and we need to continue to give him chances, and also confidence for when he plays to have the best performance." Leno's performance gave every indication that he is indeed more suited to Arsenal's new style of play, and it was put to Emery that the 26-year-old might keep his place for Everton's visit on Sunday. Emery, however, did little to offer Leno encouragement, insisting a decision over his starting line-up is yet to be made. "My idea for each match is to arrive in the last hours to decide and say to the players my decision," he said. "But now the [priority] for us is a good performance and we spoke with every player, and with this situation with the goalkeepers, [we spoke] to explain the situation at the moment and continue working for each match to give us the performance."

    Arsenal's Mkhitaryan set to miss Everton clash

    Henrikh Mkhitaryan may miss out on Arsenal's Premier League clash with Everton after the Armenia international sustained an ankle injury during the Gunners' Europa League win against Vorskla on Thursday. The 29-year-old will face an assessment ahead of Sunday's home game with the Toffees, according to a club statement. Arsenal also provide further updates on Sead Kolasinac (knee), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (broken leg) and Carl Jenkinson (ankle). with the trio expected to return to full training early next month.  Laurent Koscielny meanwhile has begun outside training as he continues to recover from an Achilles injury. Mkhitaryan arrived at the Emirates Stadium on a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez following a lukewarm spell with Manchester United, and has made 23 appearances for the club so far, scoring four goals. He originally started his career at Armenian side Pyunik in 2006 before stints with Metalurh Donetsk and Shakhtar Donetsk took him to the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund. At international level, Mkhitaryan has been capped 76 times since making his debut for his country in 2007, with 25 goals to his name. The Gunners lie seventh in the Premier League ahead of their meeting with Everton, and are on a four-game winning streak in all competitions.

    'I joined Arsenal to play every game' - Leno admits to 'frustrating' start with Gunners

    Bernd Leno admits to having endured a “frustrating” start to life at Arsenal, with a man who “came to the club to play every game” spending more time on the bench that he had intended to. The Gunners invested €22 million (£19.2m/$25m) in the German goalkeeper over the summer, with Unai Emery moving to bolster his options between the sticks. Leno was expected to slot straight into the team as the new man in charge at Emirates Stadium sought to implement a system which requires his side to play out from the back. Veteran performer Petr Cech has, however, retained starting duties in the Premier League, with Leno only making his debut during a Europa League opener against Vorskla Poltava . The 26-year-old told Standard Sport on his start at Arsenal: “I came to the club to play every game. “But I think to move to a bigger club, another country, it needs maybe a little bit of time. It is a bit frustrating but I keep calm and work very hard to improve. “The coach always makes the starting XI because of the performance. I think it could change, not every week, but he will change a lot. He didn’t say the League is Petr’s competition and the Europa League is mine. I will work every day hard to play more games. “I came for the Premier League. I think it is the best. The Bundesliga is good but the Premier League is better, so I will look forward to playing any time in the Premier League.” Leno believes he is suited to Arsenal’s ball-playing philosophy and claims all of those at the Emirates are starting to feel more comfortable meeting the demands of Emery. He added on the back of a 4-2 victory over Vorskla: “It is getting better and better [at the club]. “The game that the coach wants is my style. I think I did a good job with the ball, with the passing. Of course, the two goals were disappointing, but they scored great goals. Maybe I need a little bit of time. “It is a little bit more of a risk to play this way because we don’t want to kick the ball up front. We want to play because we have the players to play from the back to have more space in the opposite 18-yard box.  “In the first half, the opposition was very deep, so we had big problems getting chances. So, when they started to attack more, there were situations where we can create chances by playing from the back. But it needs a little bit of time for the whole team to improve and to get the confidence.” Leno is now waiting to discover who will get the nod from Emery for a Premier League clash with Everton on Sunday, with Arsenal heading that into fixture seeking to secure a fifth successive victory across all competitions.
