Ozil prominent there... One goal. One assist. One defence splitting pass.
Maybe Arteta winning the cup last season has papered over some large cracks.

Arteta's first 27 league games as manager:

W: 12
D: 7
L: 8
Win percentage: 44%
Points per game: 1.59

Emery's first 27 league games as manager:

W: 16
D: 5
L: 6
Win percentage: 59%
Points per game: 1.97


Just for good measure, Emery's LAST 27 games...

W: 11
D: 8
L: 8
Win percentage: 41%
Points per game: 1.52

Read this morning (not sure at its accuracy) that Partey was dribbled past 13 times. Not a great first (start) league game?
That said he's come from a better system, with a far better coach, with a worldie GK.
I miss Unai in the prem. :(

That was Emery with Wenger's attacking training. It went to sh*t after Emery coached that out of the players.

Brighton appear to be back to their customary 17-16th.

Early days, but they are probably regretting not taking the money for White at this point.

Burnley park the bus and Brighton after well on top in first half, go defensive second half and watch as Brom play all over them and score inevitable equaliser.
Burnley games are sh*t to watch unless they have conceded a goal.

Brighton game was a strange one. Completely switched off in the second half and allowed the Baggies to control the play.

First clean sheet of the season more important than the 5-2 wins we've always been known for. First away 1-0 win under Mourinho and long may it continue! Harry Kane happier not scoring in a 1-0 win and clearing a goal off the line than when he scores 2 in a 3-3 draw.

That may or may not be true, but largely a side issue.
Arteta is hardly excelling and the next 5 league games could be pivotal in his tenure. utd, Villa, Leeds, Wolves and Spurs.
