Arsenal FC striker Alexandre Lacazette gives an insight into how the team is progressing under new manager Unai Emery.

Arsenal FC have had a mixed start to the new Premier League season, suffering back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea before picking up wins against West Ham United and Cardiff City.

Emery’s team have conceded eight goals and only scored seven, which is a damning indictment of the work that still needs to be done defensively for the club if they are to emerge as genuine contenders for a place in the top four.

According to Lacazette, who fired home his first goal of the 2018-19 campaign against Cardiff FC on Sunday, life under their new coach is ‘good’ and he expects the team to keep improving gradually.

As per The Express, he told reporters: “I know with the new manager it can only be better. We will be better week after week. You can see we had the mentality. Last season we lost this kind of game.

“But if you see the faces after the second goal we had confidence and that was why we came back. I think we won just two games in 2018 away from home. This season we want to be better away and it was the first game we won and I hope that it will be the first of many until the last day of the season.

“Overall it has been good even if we had two losses. They were against the two champions of the past two seasons. The quality of the games is good. Everyone can take pleasure to watch us play – even on the pitch.”

After the international break, Arsenal FC will be travelling up north to face Newcastle United and supporters will be expecting the team to win their third consecutive game against Rafa Benitez’ struggling outfit.
