Arsenal transfer news Paul Merson reveals doubts over ONE Unai Emery signing

"Yesterday the transfer window closed and our players will stay with us". Leno is starting with us, he's working very well and played well in pre-season but he can wait for his moment.

However, Emery said his players grew into the game and had chances after the break to equalise. And the team for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but I think we need to improve [everything], collectively and also individually.

"And also together to do a new way, a new process in Arsenal". Yes, it's only one game and it was against as formidable an opponent as possible, but there is a ton of room for improvement if Petr Cech and company are to rise above last year's sixth place finish.

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has named defender Laurent Koscielny as his main captain, with Mesut Ozil listed as one of four vice-captains.

"We wanted to start here with our supporters".

"We arrived after a hard season and I told him I want to help him and would like him to be happy".

Per Mertesacker previously held the position but barely in the final season before his retirement, with Koscielny regularly taking the armband in his absence.

"We have to continue working tactically and defensively, and also making shorter the difference between Manchester City and us".

Emery was unable to shed any light on an injury to Ainsley Maitland-Niles - who was replaced in the first half - and hopes Nacho Monreal can return to training to give him an option at left-back.

"I said to him when he arrived with us after the holidays, I want the best performance in his career from this player - and to work for that", Emery said of the former Manchester United man.

"Maybe there will be more leaders in the team to show this captaincy, not just in the captains' group". But these five players are in this possibility to be the captain'.
