The north London side have bounced back from a tough start to the Premier League season to remain unbeaten in their last nine outings in the top flight under the Spanish boss.
Arsenal lost their opening games to Chelsea FC and Manchester City but then strung together a run of seven successive victories in the Premier League, before draws against Crystal Palace and Liverpool FC in their last two outings.
The Gunners showed grit and determination as they came from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw against title-challenging Liverpool FC at The Emirates on Saturday night thanks to Alexandre Lacazette’s equaliser in the second half.
And former England star Lineker has admitted that he has been impressed by the impact Emery has made at The Emirates since being appointed as Arsene Wenger’s successor back in May of this year.
After Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool FC on Saturday night, Lineker wrote on Twitter: “Have to say, @Arsenal’s progress under Emery is significant. Well I didn’t have to, but sod it.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal legend Lee Dixon felt that the Gunners were the better team against Jurgen Klopp’s side on Saturday.
Dixon wrote on Twitter after the game: “Top performance yesterday [Saturday]. Two fullbacks played great. One hardly played. One passed a late fitness test. Rob Holding was epic. Forwards hurt Liverpool. Better team. Well done The Arsenal.”
Arsenal – who are fifth in the Premier League – will return to Europa League action on Thursday night when they host Sporting Lisbon at The Emirates.
