Arsenal took their unbeaten streak to 17 consecutive games in all competitions with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over in-form Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday. Whilst the win keeps Unai Emery’s impressive start to life at the Emirates Stadium going, the performance once again left plenty to be desired from his side.
Defensively, the Gunners often looked vulnerable against the Cherries’ attackers. Emery’s side were also repeatedly guilty of squandering possession in dangerous areas, and on another day the north London outfit would have been punished for their carelessness.
The Playmaker FC squad decided to wind-up some unsuspecting Brazil fans at the Emirates on Saturday night. Watch the hilarious results in the video below…
After the game, Emery made it clear that he feels his side “need to improve and we need to do more”, as reported by the Gunners’ official website.
Some improvements could perhaps be made via the upcoming January transfer window. The current fitness concerns surrounding Danny Welbeck, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal certainly means the squad is light in a few key areas.
Arsenal fans seem particularly concerned with the lack of quality depth currently available in the wide areas, with 40% of those who voted in our poll urging Emery to prioritise signing a winger in January. See the full results below.
