Match Preview Unai Emery Arsenal 2018-19Hector Bellerin may have warned supporters not to be “unrealistic” about Arsenal’s expectations following their recent upturn in fortunes, but it is easy to see why some might allow themselves the luxury.Even though they currently sit outside the top four, in their last five games in the Premier League the Gunners have posted the best run of form in the division, surpassing early pace-setters Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.They scored 14 goals in those games, with Aubameyang and Lacazette bagging eight between them, forcing the rest of the league to take notice of the burgeoning partnership.Arsenal’s only defeats this season came in the opening two weeks of the campaign, against City and Chelsea, but they have improved significantly since then, with the players adapting favourably to the new methods being implemented by Emery.Their last meeting with Leicester ended in a 3-1 defeat as the final days of Arsene Wenger’s reign lurched to a disappointing conclusion, while the reverse fixture at the Emirates was a narrow 1-0 win in the north London side’s favour.The Foxes are coming up against an altogether different beast on Monday, though.
