Formation under Unai

He seems to prefer 4-3-3.

What do you think will be his probable foward line? If the budget is low, i dont see us signing anyone in the attacking third.
So imo, he might go with


Ozil - lacazette - Aubemeyang.

I've not included the rest of the team as thsts in for a complete over haul.

Also high pressing systems require more time for team to gel, as we are not going to just rely on numbers to defend.

Expect that there will be lack of coordination while pressing for a few months, so we will leak a few goals

The simple fact that our back 4 shouldn't be by the opposition penalty area should automatically mean we improve significantly at the back.

I think there will be addition in front 3 n few should be sold. Also there will be addition n departure in the MF and at least 2 addition in back 4. But that’s not enough, still need a very good goalkeeper that’s the minimum.

I understood it’s a definite 4-3-2-1 with Emery, so more defensive than we are used to, which means that Auby will be the main striker.

- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

It’s a bit of lazy presentation mostly using PSG vs Madrid games, his Seville or Valencia days could be better benchmark how he wants to rebuild Arsenal but overall correct explanation of his philosophy thumbs down
