Eddie Howe Believes Arsenal Are A Different Entity Under Unai Emery

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe says Arsenal pose a different threat since Unai Emery took charge.

The Cherries are just four points adrift of fifth placed Arsenal and will be trying to reduce the gap when they host the Gunners this weekend. Bournemouth has been pretty impressive with their fluent movements and it won’t be easy for the Gunners who are currently on a 10 match unbeaten run in the top flight.

Emery seems to have a solution for every problem so far and it remains to be seen how he deals with the threat of the Cherries attack. Despite having a sluggish start the Spanish manager has managed to recover a lot of ground and the North London giants are currently a major contender for a place in the top four.

Howe said, “I think it will be a very good game, fifth vs sixth, Arsenal are on this very good unbeaten run, they’ve adapted very well to the new manager and played well.

“They have outstanding attacking players and a real good look about their team at the moment, we know it’s going to be tough.

“I don’t think you can make too many comparisons, it’s a new era for Arsenal.

“We just approach the game in the same way we do any team, we watch them and analyse them and we make our game plans around what we have seen.

“The key thing for us and what we have found is that if one to 11 we are very good then we have a chance – if we have two or three off the pace then these games are very difficult to get anything out of.”
