Unai Emery delivers riot act to Arsenal players ahead of Chelsea clash



Unai Emery has informed Arsenal players to try and lean down and lose fat and has told the players to run more during matches. According to news reports, Emery wants to implement a high octane pressing style which he employed at Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain

However to achieve this style he has imposed string targets for his plays mandating each individual to lose and an average of 1.3kg of fat. Which means Arsenal players have to run more during matches unlike the languid style under Arsene Wenger.

Emery is also worried about Arsenal poor injury record over the years which has repeated itself this season with Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles and Monreal out for weeks. He wants the club doctors to ensure optimal fitness levels are reached this season. this is to ensure that he has maximum number of players to select from for match days,

Arsenal began their season with a defeat to Manchester City as goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva condemned Emery to a debut defeat. However there were traces of his work on the team with high pressing particularly in the opening stages of the game.

Arsenal next faces Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and would be keen to move on from the opening day defeat to champions Manchester City.
