Unai Emery reveals how Arsenal will approach against West Ham United

The Gunners have lost both of their opening Premier League fixtures

Arsenal had a very busy summer as Unai Emery was appointed as the new manager of the club after Arsene Wenger decided to leave the club after 22 years. The Spaniard signed a three-year deal worth £15 million.

He was given the charge with the task of rebuilding the squad and returning the club to the European elite while challenging for other major honours, after they finished sixt in the Premier League last season resulting in missing the Champions League this season.

The Gunners have made 5 new additions this summer: Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria, Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient, Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund and Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus.

However, the Premier League giants haven’t got off to a great start as they have begun life under the Spaniard with back-to-back defeats in the Premier League against their big rivals Chelsea and Manchester City.

The London Outfit will face West Ham United in their upcoming Premier League match on Saturday, who are also without a win till now. Emery has revealed that the approach of facing Hammers will be different than the previous two games.

“Manchester City are a different team and so the preparation is very different compared to other matches,” The 46 year old said as quoted by Goal. “Also, Chelsea are different to other teams. We have to work specifically to prepare for them.

“Saturday is also a difficult match, but we are thinking more we can control the match, with our personality. Against Chelsea and Manchester City we wanted to control with our personality, but there were more times in the 90 minutes that the opposition did not let us do that.”
