4 burning questions for Emery after Rennes win
Following Thursday's spectacular win against Rennes, we ask the most burning questions for the manager.
1. How can Emery ensure the team doesn't lose their form?
Recently, Arsenal have been nothing short of phenomenal. We overturned deficits against BATE Borisov, defeated Manchester United and Southampton and demolished Bournemouth. The only time we didn't win this past month was against Spurs where the referees decided to help them.
However, our next game is scheduled for April, which means the team might lose their sharpness and match fitness. Arsenal are set to travel to Dubai next week for a short training camp but is it enough?
2. What will the team focus on in training?
Since our next competitive fixture is only on April 1, the squad have a lot of time to train. But what area should be focused on more? The defence, apart from Shkodran Mustafi, has looked really good recently, keeping several vital clean sheets. The offence has been in-form practically all season. Maybe we should work on our set piece routines?
3. Is this the end of the Guendouzi hype for this season?
With Xhaka-Ramsey evidently becoming the main central midfield pairing due to their stellar performances together, Torreira has been demoted to the bench. But as we've seen yesterday, Emery prefers to bring on the Uruguayan in the latter stages of the game. Thus, it might be the Frenchman's season over.
4. We're not signing Denis Suarez on a permanent deal, are we?
At first, the Spaniard featured in the side coming off the bench, but now he struggles to achieve even that. At this point, it's almost a foregone conclusion by every media outlet that the 25-year-old will not be offered a permanent deal to stay at the Emirates.
