#3 Arsenal’s confidence dealt a major blow

Arsenal have now lost two consecutive matches

Unai Emery was unveiled as Arsenal’s new manager in the summer after over two decades of being managed by Arsene Wenger and the 47-year-old was seen as the right man to lead the club into the new era having suffered a bit of stagnation in the latter years of Wenger’s reign.

The Spaniard tactician began his Arsenal tenure on a bad note, losing his first two matches, but embarked on a run of 11 consecutive wins in all competitions which were a personal best for Emery, as well as a club best for 11 years.

A draw against Crystal Palace in the EPL halted their momentum, but they still managed to remain unbeaten for 22 matches in all competitions until the 3-2 reverse at the St Mary’s stadium over the weekend.

The loss at Tottenham marked two straight defeats for Arsenal and represents a serious dent to their confidence in their chase for a top-four finish.
