Almost across the board, Arsenal’s squad has improved this season. The arrival of Unai Emery has reinvigorated a side that had been stagnating for a few years, and with 9 wins in a row now being enjoyed by the Gunners, it’s fair to say that things are on the up.
Emery’s influence cannot be understated, and the players deserve credit for responding to his methods and improving so much.
However, it’s fair to say that some have enjoyed more success than others this term.
Emery’s impact can only go so far, and sometimes it’s up to the players themselves to be the difference makers in their own careers. Whilst many have improved, some could yet go further to attaining their best game as Arsenal look to reaelly make a splash this term.
With that said, if these 2 Arsenal players improve, Emery’s team could be unstoppable – agreed?
Mesut Ozil, on his day, is one of Europe’s best ever midfielders. Back at Real Madrid, he was consistently amongst the best in the world when it came to assists, and he continues that at Arsenal.
However, over the last few years, he has fallen off the track a little bit. Particularly last season, the German suffered from poor form for long periods of time, and he’s yet to really prove his worth to Unai Emery.
That’s a shame, because his technical ability and passing range are clear for all to see.
If he’s able to beat his career-best 19 assists in one league season, he’ll give Arsenal a real advantage in the race this season.
Hector Bellerin deserves credit for improving his game this season; but is there still room for improvement?
Going forward, Bellerin has always been a fantastic asset. He’s electric, he’s got a fantastic whipped cross, and he’s able to make a real menace of himself with his great running.
However, there is certainly room for improvement defensively.
He’s often been caught out of position over the years, whilst his overall defensive work does leave much to be desired at points.
When he first emerged at Arsenal, he was the complete right-back. He’s developed significantly going forward since then, but his defensive work needs to match that rate.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
