Fixtures for the 2018/19 Premier league season was released by the media earlier but Arsenal made the headlines as their first game of the season would be against capital rivals and league champions Manchester City.
While the fans of the Gunners continue to react to the fixtures, Arsenal new boss Unai Emery reckons that he is excited about the tough start, according to report.
Arsene Wenger shockingly called time on his spell with Arsenal after his 22-year reigns and the club struggled to find a man to fill in his big boots. After several interviews and consultations, the Gunners deemed it fit to appoint former Sevilla and Paris Saint Germain boss Unai Emery as Wenger’s successor.
The Coach has been charged with revamping the Gunners squad so as to bring back the glory days and he has already began that. Arsenal saw a leader in Stephan Lichtsteiner and he has been brought on board as our first signing. Several names have emerged as our targets including Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira and Caglar Soyuncu and it is only a matter of days before the aforementioned players join the Gunners.
Arsenal were fixed to play with Manchester City in their league opener but Emery has never won in his last 10-meetings against Pep Guardiola. The Gunners will also face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their match day two and Arsenal are yet to win a game there since 2011.
Nonetheless, this is the Premier league and Emery have to up his game. He took to twitter to claim that the daunting fixture for Arsenal is one to be excited about.
