- Mikel Arteta's stats at Arsenal has shown that Unai Emery had a higher win rate than his successor during the period under review
- The ex-PSG manager was nonetheless shown the door in November 2019 with Arteta taking over
- The only department Arteta beats Emery is the trophy haul, having already led Arsenal to two title wins
Mikel Arteta may have got Arsenal off a flying start after his return to the club as manager.
However, stats show he has a relatively worse record than Unai Emery who he replaced at the helm of the north London club.
Whereas Arsenal seem to have sat back and afford Arteta more time as he continues his rebuilding, there appears to be no signs of improvement.
When comparing the Spaniard tacticians after 26 Premier League games, it is Emery who come out on top in nearly every aspect.
In his first 26 matches, Emery bagging 15 wins, five draws and six losses - picking a 58% win rate.
The ex-Paris Saint-Germain's team further proved to be incisive upfront, registering 317 shots and scoring an impressive 53 goals during the period under review.
However, defensively, the team appeared to be leaky at the back as they shipped in 37 goals.
On his part, Arteta has led the Gunners to just 12 wins, six draws and eight defeats to register a 48% win rate.
The ex-midfielder's team has scored just 40 goals but has proved to be solid at the back with only 28 goals conceded.
Overall, Emery had a 55.1% win rate before he was axed in November 2019, with Arteta, who boasts of a 55.2% win rate taking over.
But optimistic fans will be glad with Arteta's tutelage after the manager led the club to FA Cup and Community Shield triumphs while Emery won nothing during his tenure.
The Emirates outfit currently sit 11th on the standings with 9 points from six matches after their Sunday night, October 26, defeat to Leicester.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Shkodran Mustafi who plays as a defender for Premier League side Arsenal and the German national team has reportedly told the Gunners' chiefs that he wants to leave next summer.
Since joining the Gunners from Valencia in 2016, the 28-year-old has been impressive for the Premier League giants making 99 appearances so far.
Arsenal chiefs have been trying to convince him to sign a new deal, but no announcement has been made so far on the development.
