Arsenal’s spell under did not get off to the best of starts on Sunday, as the fell to a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.

That result was not too surprising given the dominance Pep Guardiola’s side enjoyed in the Premier League last season, which has led to the Citizens being tipped as favourites to retain their crown this term.

However, it was the chance for and pundits to see Arsenal in a competitive match for the first time under Emery and, despite some positives, legend identified some concerns after the match.

In a lengthy Twitter thread, Wright praised new signings and Lucas Torreira but admits he struggled to identify Arsenal’s gameplan.

“At this level against this Man City team you need to 100 per cent execute the game plan.¬†For large parts of that game I didn’t know what that was and you get punished for that tactical uncertainty.

“Two positives (Guendouzi not hiding & Torreira debut), gutted for Ainsley [Maitland-Niles)].

“There are some big positional and personnel decisions to be made ahead of the game on Saturday.¬†Patience required but Unai will be under no illusions after watching that game today.”
