Unai Emery needs four windows to transform Gunners, says Ian Wright

However, Emery has backed Cech to keep his starting role against Chelsea on Saturday, and said being part of the passing game is something modern goalkeepers must get used to. Leno, who joined the Gunners in the summer started as a substitute on Sunday. I expected a little more on Saturday, they had a big change, and after 22 years it's different if something is new, of course.

"I believe he should get that and we should judge him then". "But also, we are building our style because we think it's the best way, to have the control on each match, to find the best way to win". "He has experience, he has quality, he has the capacity", he added.

In my opinion Arsenal player should believe in their new coach and should strictly follow his system and French worldwide Alexandre lacazette and Granit Xhaka must improve to make a case for a place in the starting eleven under Emery.

Last season, Arsenal had one of the worst away records in the Premier League so they definitely head into the clash at Stamford Bridge as the underdogs.

"I want us to show more personality in each match to improve, so the performances arrive quickly".

One problem area for Emery may be solved by the return of Nacho Monreal at left-back.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles filled in but suffered a small fracture to his leg early on and now faces up to two months out. But a string of bad performances, ones that put Arsenal behind the eight ball in terms of getting back to the top four, could see Leno take Cech's spot permanently. Luckily for the Gunners, Nacho Monreal has returned to full training and could deputize against Chelsea, or Stephan Lichtsteiner could move over from right back to play left back.

There were tactical changes, such as the team clearly trying to pass out from the back more - even if it did almost result in an embarrassing own goal for Petr Cech as he narrowly avoided his own far post with a pass.
