The Spaniard was initially thought to be a surprising choice as the new Gunners coach, but he is going down well among the squad
Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac has saluted the meticulous approach of head coach Unai Emery and is convinced the Spaniard has the Gunners improving “personally, tactically and technically”.
Emery was selected as the successor to the long-serving Arsene Wenger at the end of last season, with the Frenchman departing after 22 years at the helm.
However, Arsenal go into Saturday’s clash with Huddersfield Town unbeaten in 20 matches across all competitions, and Kolasinac has no doubt Emery’s coaching methods are having the desired impact.
“When you don’t lose a game for that long, the belief is there for everyone,” the defender told Sky Sports.
“Last season, we didn’t have a run like this, but when you’re 20 unbeaten you have lots of confidence and belief and sometimes things take care of themselves. We’re stronger in what we’re doing this year, probably.
“The manager always prepares us very well for games. We watch a lot of videos, and, speaking as a full-back, he and his staff will show us what we’re doing well and what we need to improve. That helps a lot when you’re shown things.
“It might be that you weren’t standing right in one game, make sure you stand in a better position in the next one. That means you learn from game to game and become better, and it’s a key to success.

“Game to game we’re getting stronger, better on the ball. I feel that we are developing personally, tactically and technically too.
“We’re taking strides forward and I hope we can keep this unbeaten run going on for as long as possible.”
