Arsenal must win Premier League under Unai Emery - Jens Lehmann

Arsenal's director of high performance Darren Burgess says the players have embraced new manager Unai Emery's methods.

Arsene Wenger is one of the greatest football managers in history.

While optimism is growing at Anfield, the same can not be said at last season's runners-up Manchester United who kick off the new season on Friday at home to Leicester City with a squad that is under-cooked, according to manager Jose Mourinho.

The 21-year-old was restricted to just a handful of starts after being hampered by a serious hamstring injury for much of last season and his place in Ernesto Valverde's first team this season is under threat following the arrival of Malcom from AS Roma.

Aaron is an important player for us, and the contract is one thing for the club and the player. "His sessions are very intricate in that regard".

Arsenal are not widely expected to make any signings on deadline day, having already added five players to their squad this summer.

Understandably, Arsenal fans were excited by the prospect of signing such a talented attacker but our joy was short-lived as respected BBC journalist David Ornstein was quick to play down the reports.

Star strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are also both rested after the summer and looked sharp in pre-season. The team won its third Premier League title (and fifth English top-flight trophy overall), while setting more than 10 new Premier League records along the way, including for most points (100), most goals (106), most wins (32) and the biggest winning points margin (19).

If Emery is successful in transforming Arsenal's defence, they could well challenge for the Premier League again next season. He's never not analysing, even in the lead up to friendly games.

Ramsey is a key figure in the club's midfield but they could lose him for nothing next summer if they don't get him tied down long-term.
