Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has said that there are a lot of differences in terms of the managerial styles of Unai Emery and former boss Arsene Wenger. The Spanish tactician was appointed to succeed Wenger at the helm last summer and he has since managed to groom the team to his style of play with relative comfort.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Lacazette indicated that there are many differences in the managerial styles of Emery and Wenger. He added that the former has done more on a tactical scale with the club and this has included more video demonstrations of the opposition, he told the publication: “There’s a lot of difference. We work tactically more, we do more video as well, how the coach speaks is different than Wenger. It’s different. It’s hard to always compare the coaches because they have their own technique to manage the team.”
The north London club have squandered their chance to make the top four with three defeats from the past four matches but they are nonetheless within one point off fourth-placed Chelsea. The west London giants have a tough away trip at Manchester United to contend with for the weekend and the failure to secure maximum points, could put the Gunners back into the fourth spot, if they manage to overcome Leicester City on the road.
The same remains far from assured with their dreaded away league form this year and it remains to be seen whether the players can produce a strong response at the King Power Stadium. Meanwhile, the Gunners can also qualify for next season’s Champions League by winning the Europa League title altogether, but they need to first overcome Valencia in a double-legged semi-final. Thereafter, they could face one of Eintracht Frankfurt or Chelsea for the European title in Baku.
