New boss is looking to complete significant changes to the squad’s style in his first campaign at the club, following his move from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Spaniard arrived at the Stadium over the summer as a successor to long-serving boss Arsene and made changes to his playing squad in the summer, signing five new faces and approving a number of departures.

Things did not get off to the best of starts though as the were defeated 2-0 by defending Premier League champions on Sunday and face another stern test this weekend up against Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea.

It is clear that Emery still has work to do with his squad and The Express states that he has demanded the lose weight and run more during matches, as he attempts to install his high-tempo philosophy upon the Gunners.

Arsenal’s squad is not overweight but Emery wants 1.23kg more of ‘lean’ muscle mass in his players, as well as wanting the squad to run an average of 760m more individually per match.
