Arsenal are preparing a comeback in the race of the English title and Unai Emery is doing his best to fuel up the squad. Arsenal came from behind to beat the foxes Leicester City by a margin of 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night to make it 10 wins in a row in all competitions. The statistics show that the Gunners are riding their luck though Unai Emery is well ahead of schedule.

Don’t know whether Dead Men tell tales or not but “ten wins” in a row definitely tells a tale. Arsenal are supposed to be back and you just can’t blame these supporters for being excited. The Premier League’s perennial crisis club had been in stasis for years, some were calling it a civil war. Though the time is changing and now they are rejuvenated by a renewed sense of purpose. Something is definitely stirring at Arsenal after their best start in half a decade.

The transition to life from death under Unai Emery was never going to be flawless but it has been pretty much. Arsenal looked very much vulnerable for most of the time against Leicester, particularly in the first half in which they were fortunate to leave the field level. But the beauty was there for all to see after the break as Mesut Ozil and the rest played to their inch perfect points and kicked off their opponents off the park.

If there is happening a title race this season then the consensus is that Liverpool are the right choice to provide Manchester City with a worthy opponent. Chelsea are unbeaten too and Sarri will definitely force their name into the equation. And now, the Gunners are right there too. They are level on points with their London rivals and above Tottenham on goal difference. They are thriving sound and perfect. Though to be the title winners, Arsenal needs to work in all the fields. They have faced most shots from the opponents than the sides who are ahead of them. The defensive issues are still a crisis issue for the men of Emirates. On the other hand, Bernd Leno is still in progress.

 

Though in the meantime, the Gunners’ newly-appointed head of football Raul Sanllehi has given the signals that Arsenal may dip into the transfer market in January to improve Unai Emery’s squad. Sanllehi was confirmed in his new role at the Emirates last month when the news came into the media that Gunner’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis will leave the north London club for AC Milan at the end of October.

The Spaniard left Barcelona to join the Gunners in February this year. He has been joined in a new role by Vinai Venkatesham, who has taken on the position of managing director. In a recent interview, he has said that the Gunners will have a whole team of professionals constantly analysing what is in the market and they will analyse the date ahead of any potential move that Unai Emery wants to make. He added that he is not a strong believer of the winter window and normally it’s used for emergency cases when things are not going the way one has planned in the summer window. Though that doesn’t mean that they are not going to use it as he said. He doesn’t know yet and it’s still early in the process. Sanllehi also said that they need to know what the side need at first and what it could be and then what opportunities are in the market. The technical group is always watching the market and they have a whole team of professionals constantly analysing what’s in the market, though the need of the head coach will be regarded as the final signal.
