Emery reveals why this Arsenal star was removed on Sunday

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has provided an explanation over his decision to remove one of the players who started on Sunday from the game as the Gunners trailed to Wolves at half time.

Emery recently watched his side’s 11-game winning streak across all competitions come to an end in a 2-2 draw away to London neighbours Crystal Palace.

Arsenal’s form has gotten slightly worse ever since that result and the struggle continued on Sunday in a 1-1 draw with Wolves in the Premier League.

It was a game which saw Unai Emery make some bold substitutions with Alex Iwobi being withdrawn at half time.

During his post-match interview, the Arsenal boss was asked about the decision to replace Iwobi at such an early stage in the game and Emery went on to explain his move.

“It was a tactical change. We wanted to play our right and left backs deeper and win back more possession inside with Sead and Hector.” the Arsenal manager said.

“Sometimes we did this situation well and we created chances to score. Their work was good defensively because their block was very high.”
