Unai Emery Confirms Three Arsenal Players Likely To Leave

Unai Emery Confirms Three Arsenal Players Likely To Leave

Whenever Pep Guardiola has faced an Arsenal side, it's been Arsene Wenger in charge.

The Premier League's transfer deadline passed without Ramsey leaving and Emery now wants to ensure the midfielder stays long-term, although he confirmed David Ospina, Carl Jenkinson and Joel Campbell could yet leave for European clubs before August 31.

An impressive pre-season run leaves Arsenal fans hopeful but what exactly is Emery's strategy for the Gunners?

Emery is very hands-on, planning every training session himself and often literally walking his players through every phase of play in minute detail.

"Our style with the ball is to be protagonists, to do things with combinations, to control the match with the positioning of the ball", Emery told Sky Sports.

Wenger opted to step down at the end of last season after nearly 22 years in charge. But in these two moments in the match we need to work.

"It's more easy to speak here than to do it on the pitch". "Winning is best motivation for me. I repeat: organised, then play".

Already, Lucas Perez has sealed a cut-price £4million switch to West Ham today, but Arsenal still need to offload at least one player to stand any chance of affording Vida. This, more often than not, landed them in trouble when they faced fast attacking teams.

And the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach has stressed the importance of Arsenal being on the front foot. Together I think we can improve, to win in our way.

"Each player has this quality, this characteristic to help the team as a collective". City, I think, after two years of working with Guardiola they have more stability, more security and when you watch City's matches, they are playing with a very, very great confidence in themselves.

Premier League clubs can still sell players to European teams until the end of the month despite the domestic window closing on Thursday, and Welbeck had been linked with a move overseas in search of more regular first-team football.
