Arsenal boss Unai Emery must solve ‘same problems’ from Arsene Wenger era

That is the opinion of Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson.

Emery has begun his spell in north London steadily, guiding Arsenal to just under two points per game in the league, placing them fifth in the table.

Three points off fourth spot, there is a sense of newfound optimism around the club following Arsene Wenger’s divisive last few years – but old habits die hard.

Against the league’s ‘Big Six’, the Gunners have been unable to step up to the plate, taking five points from a possible 18 this term.
