Former Arsenal star Charlie Nicholas has claimed that manager Unai Emery is to be praised for bringing the joy back to the Emirates Stadium.

Emery lost the opening two Premier League games to champions Manchester City and London rivals Chelsea.

But the former Paris Saint-Germain boss has well responded as his side went 12 games unbeaten in all competitions.

The North London side had stagnated somewhat under Wenger. But Nicholas claims the goals are flowing in the historic Arsenal way under Emery.

Nicholas told Sky Sports: “After the first two games of the season I thought it was going to be another tough watch this season, but since then they’ve played really well and gone on a great run – Emery really seems to be getting his ideas across and the players are buying into it.”

“They’re still some way off the title challengers. But I think the best thing I can say about them is they’ve brought the joy and excitement back to the Emirates.

“I watch Arsenal now and I’m expecting goals and entertainment and that fun factor is well and truly back – for an Arsenal man like me that’s great to see and a very pleasant surprise.”

The Gunners are back in the Premier League action on Wednesday evening as they will take on Liverpool at the Emirates.
