Henrikh Mkhitaryan reveals difference since Emery replaced Wenger | Football | Sport
Emery joined Arsenal in the wake of Arsene Wenger’s bitter departure after managing the club for 22 years.
The Spaniard’s reign began awkwardly as he lost his first two matches in charge, albeit to Manchester City and Chelsea.
Emery was subjected to a lot of criticism for those two games, in which his players showed a fragile understanding for his philosophies.
However, after those two games, the Gunners went on a seven-game win streak in the league.
The atmosphere around The Emirates Stadium is now hunky-dory ahead of the game against Wolves on Sunday.
Speaking before that tough clash against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, Mkhitaryan said: “The culture has changed inside and outside the club.”
That is indeed true – Emery has built the gym adjacent to the training ground so that players can interchange between weights and technical drills with ease.
But it is not that nor the food and a bans which Arsenal’s Armenian is talking about.
“Now the people are believing in us more because we’re playing differently,” the attacking midfielder said.
“We’re playing the way they want us to.
“We’re scoring goals, we’re winning games and that’s the best feeling for supporters.”
With a win on Sunday, Arsenal could leapfrog their north London rivals Tottenham into fourth spot. That’s one culture of the club that needn’t changing.
