Armenian and Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed the major difference between former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and Unai Emery.

Arsene Wenger called time on his 22-year spell with Arsenal in May and Emery was appointed to step into his big shoes.

Emery has had it tough in his first two game in the Premier league and while pundits have called for patience, fans are divided over his tactical prowess.

Nonetheless, Mkhitaryan who provided an assist and scored against Chelsea has revealed the Emery will come good at Arsenal, stating the difference between the Spanish tactician and Arsene Wenger.

‘It’s not too different but there are different things because there is not people playing in the same way or thinking in the same way, the philosophy is different,’ he told Sky Sports.

‘Emery kept the philosophy of Wenger but is building something new on it. He knows he can give something different to this club, like the balance between attack and defence. It’s not easy but I think he’s doing it in the right way.

‘We have to keep working because we have a new manager, a new philosophy and want to play in a different way than before under Wenger.

‘It’s not too easy but we are trying to achieve that and do what the coach is asking from us. He wants to play football and dominate the game and that’s what we’re doing, we’re not just kicking the ball up front.

‘We are trying to play football, our second goal against Chelsea we had 19 consecutive passes and then Alex [Iwobi] finished the attack and we scored. ‘It’s a new philosophy, we have to accept that and work hard to achieve our goals.’
