"It's a relationship; Emery is trying to work out a system, and how he changes Arsenal to make them successful".
West Ham, who have now lost their first three matches under Manuel Pellegrini, took the lead through Marko Arnautovic only for Nacho Monreal to equalise soon after.
Southampton's hard start continued with Harry Maguire's stoppage-time victor seeing Leicester City earn a 2-1 comeback win, a victory that will have brought much pleasure to visiting manager Claude Puel on his return to his former club. The home game against West Ham is the one that Emery will look to as his first Premier League win, a much result much needed to instill some confidence and stave off the early criticism. These two teams can't afford to finish the day with zero points after three matches, because if you do, then you seriously start considering that come season's end, you might wind up being in the relegation battle.
In the second half of the previous campaign, the Gabon global plundered 10 goals and also mustered 4 assists in 13 Premier League outings. We have to see the reasons why we conceded so many.
Details of the illness were not disclosed by the club as the former German global sat out the Gunners third league game of the season. "If a player's ill, why would you be invited to the game?"
Accentuating the positives of Arsenal's spirited comeback, Emery added: "We improved in the second half and controlled more like we want".
Lacazette's introduction had revitalised Arsenal and he drew a good stop from Lukasz Fabianski with a stinging strike.
