Out of interest I watched Villarreal vs Kiev earlier.
Emery had them playing a very aggressive, hard and fast press around the Kiev box when the keeper had the ball. Kiev really struggled with it at times.
Made me wonder how our snowflakes would cope with that!
A hard and fast press that is the hallmark of all his teams and which was on the way to being implemented here, once the real snowflakes like Ozil who clearly couldn't do it, were moved on, and the players he brought through like Saka and Martinelli would have been able to cope with
Like Augie said though he couldn't say 'good evening' properly, and didn't use clever words like 'transitions' and explain 20 defeats away by 'small details', so we'll never know now!
If you can get Sevilla and Valencia finishing top 4 with your own players then you can certainly do it at Arsenal !
Like you say - it'll be interesting to see how we cope with it. What could possibly go wrong with Leno, Partey, Luiz and Xhaka having them pin us back around our own box
