Xhaka: Emery has helped me improve tactically

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has revealed that he feels new Gunners boss Unai Emery has helped him improve his tactical understanding of the game.

Emery was handed a hugely difficult start to life in the Premier League by the fixture computer, with the Gunners opening two games of the season coming against Champions Manchester City and London rivals Chelsea.

Arsenal would lose both their opening games, but have since won all six top flight fixtures and currently sit fourth in the table – the first time in 2018 that the Emirates outfit have been in the top four.

Xhaka has admitted that it took him and is teammates some time to adapt to the demands of their new boss, although the Switzerland international now feels the Gunners are constantly improving.

“We needed some time to get to know the character and philosophy of the new manager. It is going well and I am improving,” Xhaka told the Daily Mail.

“On a tactical level, the manager has really helped me. But we can still improve.”
