Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been labelled as 'Philosophy changer' by club legend Ian Wright. 

Wright has heaped praise on Emery's impressive start to life in the Premier League this campaign. Despite struggling in the two League opener matches, he has had a positive impact at the north London club since taking over from Arsene Wenger in the summer. 

"Yes, I know he copped a bit when he lost his first two games as Arsenal manager, but against Manchester City and Chelsea, it was hardly the greatest surprise. Since then he has gone about his business meticulously and methodically — and chalked up a very impressive NINE wins on the bounce," said Ian.

“I know, as plenty will be quick to point out, they haven’t all been against the toughest of opponents, on paper at least. But there is also that old adage about only being able to beat what is in front of you. And whether you are expected to win or not, you still have to do so," he added. 

“Weren’t United expected to beat Brighton and West Ham? Weren’t Tottenham expected to put a hatful past Cardiff on Saturday? The Premier League doesn’t work like that. So don’t let anyone talk down what Spaniard Emery has achieved over the past couple of months at the Emirates," he explained. 

“What Unai is doing is trying to change the whole philosophy going forward, and he is doing it very, very well indeed.”

After eight games of the Premier League season, the Gunners find themselves only two points off the top. It's a remarkable record for a side still in transition under new boss.
