Arsenal head coach Unai Emery issued a rallying cry to the fans following Sunday’s narrow win against Bournemouth as doubt remains about the Spaniard’s long-term credentials.

David Luiz scored the only goal of the game at the Emirates from a corner and it appeared that would’ve been the start of a routine win.

However, chances were few and far between following that moment and as Bournemouth grew in confidence, particularly after the interval, we retreated back to our 18-yard line.

The visitors had a few opportunities with the main chance falling to their marksman Callum Wilson as the England international went round Bernd Leno and failed to find an empty goal.

Emery responded to the pressure by making a few defensive substitutions, including the introduction of Lucas Torreira for the exciting Bukayo Saka.

We eventually got over the line and into third place, one point behind the reigning champions Manchester City.

Despite that, doubts still remain among the fanbase regarding Emery’s credentials and the dire style of football we’ve become accustomed to under the Spaniard.

Last season, a flawed 22-match unbeaten run seemed to lure us into a false sense of security, only for our shortcomings to be laid bare in the run-in as we somehow squandered our top-four status.

Now, potentially due to his sense of anxiety, Emery took to social media to launch a rallying cry to the supporters ahead of the international break and is adamant that the squad can still improve.

“It’s been a very busy and positive last month, and fortunately, we can still improve a lot and will keep working hard,” Emery posted on Twitter.

“Together we are stronger.”

Motivational speeches on Twitter are cool, but performances on the pitch are what’s going to enthuse the Gunner folklore.
