Ex-Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman has revealed that he is not convinced Unai Emery’s methods will garner success for the team going forward.

Arsenal are currently mid-table in the Premier League after a disappointing start to the 2018-19 campaign.

Emery’s men were dealt an unfortunate hand when the fixtures were announced over the summer, as they were forced to face-off against champions Man City and Chelsea in their opening two games.

Arsenal lost both matches, but they have since bounced back with back-to-back wins against West Ham and Cardiff City respectively.

The worrying aspect of the team’s early season form is the fact that they have already shipped 8 goals and club legend Seaman is not sure that Emery’s tactics will pay dividends any time soon.

He told Goal: “It’s a big change, it’s a massive change for Arsenal. For the club firstly and for the team it’s different.

“We’ve got a sort of game plan that is trying to play it out from the back all the time, and it’s not quite working.”

After the conclusion of the international break, Arsenal FC will make the trip up north to face Newcastle at St James’ Park, which is a must-win game for the team as they try to climb back into contention for a top-four finish.
