It was a bit of a rocky start for Unai Emery at Arsenal.

The Spaniard was handed an awfully tough introduction to life in north London after the fixture computer coughed up an opening day visit from Manchester City before a London derby against a resurgent Chelsea.

Emery’s new side were no match for City but put up a decent fight against Chelsea, losing out to a late Marcos Alonso goal.

However, despite the encouraging signs, the Gunners were without a point from their opening two games, and the somber mood that had engulfed the Emirates towards the back end of last season began to descend once again.

Things have picked up since though, with Arsenal securing two hard-fought wins over West Ham and Cardiff City as they look to kickstart an assault on the coveted top four.

There is no questioning that there is still a lot of work to be done, but Emery has shown signs that he is the right man to take the club forward.

In fact, the Spaniard has shown his determination to speed the progress of the club once again by insisting that only English is spoken in the Arsenal dressing room.

According to John Cross at The Mirror, Emery is desperate to be fluent in English by Christmas and, even though he is said to be struggling with the language, expects his players to communicate in the language too.

Emery will speak to players in their own languages during one-on-one chats but believes that the group as a whole should all speak the same language.

The former PSG and Sevilla manager is known for his attention to detail and this new rule shows just how eager he is to get Arsenal firing again.

This really is a very interesting move but could be a brilliant way to improve the team chemistry and make them a stronger unit as a whole.

Arsenal head up north to face Newcastle today and will be hoping for another valuable three points to keep in touch with the leading pack.
