Unai Emery

As more Arsenal fans continue mounting pressure over the humiliating loss at Anfield last weekend on the Spanish Coach Unai Emery who is in his 2nd transformational season in north London, An Arsenal fan has told talkSPORT that the club should have appointed Rafael Benitez instead of ‘caretaker manager’ Unai Emery.


And Richard the Gooner believes Benitez would have been a better fit to succeed Arsene Wenger as he would have started by strengthening their defense, which remains a big problem for the north London side. Benitez’ defensive record speaks for itself, especially away from home where Arsenal have particularly struggled.

However, Tony Cascarino also believes Unai Emery ‘got his tactics all wrong’ against Liverpool and claims Arsenal are still a long way off challenging for the Premier League title. Last season, only champions Manchester City (11) and runners-up Liverpool (12) conceded fewer goals away from home than Newcastle United (23) in the Premier League.
