PEP GUARDIOLA CRUSHES UNAI EMERY’S BEGINNING – UNAI EMERY BEGINS ARSENAL COACHING IN TEARS (0 – 2)
It seemed as if Unai Emery is still looking for the team he will play with in this 2018/2019 Barclay’s Premier League season as the 4-2-3-1 formation comprising of Peter Cech in-between the goal line, Bellerin, Mustafi, Papsta and Mitlan in the defense, Guendouzi and Xhaka in deep midfield and Ozil, Ramsey and Mkhitaryan in the forward, leaving only Aubameyang to find the net at all cost did not only yield him a loss but a heart attack to remember.
Unai Emery placed a high anticipation on the cracker as it was really a test of his class as a world class coach though goals from R Sterling and newly impressing Bernado Silva saw that Guardiola was the smiling one after 90 minutes of play.
Unai Emery’s side was energetic though possession was not in his favour as Manchester City had 59% possession against the Gunners who had only but 41%. Before this match, the new Gunners’ boss has faced Pep Guardiola 10 times throughout his career but so far, he is yet to win once against the Manchester City gaffer. This makes it 11th loss against Guardiola in his professional career as a coach.
