Two defeat from two games; it has not been a good start for Unai Emery at Arsenal. However, taking on Manchester City and Chelsea, it was never going to be easy.
West Ham United are their opponents on Saturday (15:00), with the Hammers themselves losing both their opening games. At least someone, if not both, can pick up their first points this weekend.
There are no new injury worries for the Spanish boss ahead of the fixture, Sead Kolašinac (knee) is hoping to return to training in October, while Ashley Maitland-Niles (leg), Carl Jenkinson (ankle) and Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) will all be out until November.
