Whilst Man City, Eden Hazard and Jose Mourinho continue to dominate the back pages in the early stages of the season, over at the Emirates, Unai Emery has been plotting his quiet Arsenal revolution.
Six Premier League wins in a row have seen the Spaniard’s Gunners go from 17th after a 3-2 defeat at Chelsea to 4th, two points off the top. Furthermore, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have formed one of the division’s most potent partnerships, scoring eight goals between them.
Such circumstances at any other major club would have invited premature title speculation so how have Arsenal managed to avoid any unnecessary pressure and sneak up the table quieter than the Emirates on a Europa League night?
In this video, we ask if the answer to Emery’s early success could lie with a man currently employed five miles away from him, Mauricio Pochettino.
