After Arsenal host Man City, most of Emery’s early games are in the South

Unai Emery’s first 10 away games are mostly in the South of England.

They are Chelsea, Cardiff, Newcastle, Fulham, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Man United, Southampton, Brighton and West Ham.

I’m hoping that a newly-motivated Arsenal can win or draw seven of those 10 away games.

Emery will know all about the coaching style of Rafa Benitez and he might enjoy the atmosphere at St James Park.

Pep Guardiola will bring the champions to the Emirates Stadium on the opening day.

As a first home game, Citeh might be a very tough one.

Seven games in December, starting with Spurs and Man United, will seem a brutal schedule to a continental coach accustomed to a Christmas break.
