Specifically, Shearer argued that Arsenal's centre backs don't suit Emery's preferred approach: "It's very hard to play a high line when you have got Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos in central defence, who aren't blessed with pace", he wrote. "If we are just going to kick the ball up front and wait for God to give us a chance to score, it's not necessary", Mkhitaryan told Sky Sports.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains confident Unai Emery's methods will work at Arsenal, despite the club enduring a sticky start to his reign.

We did our best, in one case we can say we were unlucky a bit, but that is football, it can happen. "The important thing is to stay positive, believe in ourselves and to keep working the same way and the result will come".

Arsenal will attempt to record their first win of the season when they host West Ham United this weekend.

The Gunners finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a Champions League spot.

The points leader already is locked into the playoffs, so finishing Saturday night was about pride and his love of Bristol. Kyle Larson finished second and fell one spot short of sweeping the Xfinity Series and Cup races at Bristol.

"We won't face Chelsea and Manchester City in the next games, so it doesn't make a difference who we're playing now". It's not too easy but we are trying to achieve that and do what the coach is asking from us. "Maybe we're not as good to score at the moment but I think it's just the first few games".

Mkhitaryan highlighted Arsenal's second goal against Chelsea as proof that Emery's style is starting to work.

Shearer wrote: "Emery also has a problem with playing the ball out from the back because Petr Cech is clearly uncomfortable with it".

The report says an angry Carcedo talked with Torreira for over a minute explaining where he went wrong during the goal while the rest of the players were making their way over to the away fans to thank them.
