Mikel Arteta's Record Compared To Unai Emery's After 38 Games

Mikel Arteta's Record Compared To Unai Emery's After 38 Games

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal record is actually worse than Unai Emery's at this stage.

Arteta replaced his fellow Spaniard in December 2019 and his led the Gunners to FA Cup and Community Shield wins at Wembley Stadium.

However, the stats show that after 38 games in all competitions, Emery has the superior ratio in a lot of different departments.

Emery, now in charge of Villarreal, had won 23 games of his first 38 games - two more than Arteta has managed in his time in the Emirates Stadium dug-out.

It's Arteta's predecessor who has the better win ratio with 61% to 55% - with Emery's side drawing two games few and losing the identical amount of matches overall (9).

In the Premier League alone, Emery tasted victory in 15 of his first 26 games - compared to Arteta's 12 victories.

Arteta has introduced a structure and sured up an Arsenal backline that was leaking goals, having conceded 35 goals to the 47 shipped by the North London outfit when they were at the helm.

But when it comes to goals scored, Arsenal were much more potent under their former manager. Emery's team notched an impressive 74 and Arteta has seen his side score 58 - winning the vast majority of their games this term by one goal.

Arsenal succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City last time out, with Jamie Vardy scoring the winner in the second half.

And ahead of the trip to Manchester United next Sunday, former Arsenal defender Martin Keown believes Arteta needs to stop making mistakes similar to what cost Emery his job just over a year ago.

"They keep changing from one system to another and they did this with Emery," Keown said, as per Daily Express.

"That's what I would like to see now, the same pictures, the same triangles, the same movements, the same partnerships, the same relationships.

"If you keep changing it, you don't find a rhythm, and that's something that I found in a very successful team.

"It was like putting an old pair of slippers on for a game. Everything was there."
