Former Arsenal centre-back Matthew Upson has claimed that the Gunners are currently more solid under Spanish manager Unai Emery compared to Arsene Wenger time at the Emirates.
Arsenal have gone a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday evening at the Emirates making it three consecutive draws in all competitions.
However, former Arsenal star Upson believes Unai Emery side are now doing great jog as they are improving week after week.
Speaking on BBC’s Football Focus, Upson said: “I’ve seen an identity and the speed in which he’s achieved that is very, very quick.”
“He’s come in and had a really big impact on the players, not so much in terms of them tactically or technically; but on their behaviour, the demands and discipline he expects from them.”
“They’re just a lot more solid, you don’t see them drop as much as you used to. But on the same side you don’t see the peaks that you saw with Arsene Wenger – the free–flowing football hasn’t quite been there, but the results have been good.”
