Unai Emery dumped Paris St-German for Arsenal in May to witness how things are being done in the Premier League when he replaced Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium, however, things have not been easy for the Spaniard as he recorded two straight defeats in first two matches.
The former Sevilla manager has faced huge criticism from fans and pundits as result of his ‘play-from-the-back’ style of play which has made Petr Cech and most of the players uncomfortable.
His tactical approach is also having a negative effect on Mesut Ozil’s performance so far this season.
The German wants his players to play a high pressing game but that didn’t work out well for the team against Manchester City and Chelsea respectively.

Though the change in the system of play is affecting the team’s overall performance, some players were individually far from impressive since the start of the campaign.
These list of players must get used to Emery’s style of play so as to improve their display during matches in order to maintain their place in the manager’s starting lineup as the season progresses.
The German is finding Emery’s tactics too hard to adapt to as he is made to track back to regain possession, which is not his style of play.
Emery has told the German star to work harder during matches but that hasn’t been seen in his play since the start of the season.
Ozil needs to reach Emery’s criteria as soon as possible else he lost his place to either Torreira or Iwobi at the middle of the pitch.
