Editor's thoughts: Unai Emery must be doing something really different from Arsene Wenger because I can hardly recognise this new Arsenal team this season. It's not so much the personnel but rather the mentality of the players. In previous editions, they would probably have rolled over and played dead after going down 1-2 at home after a good start which saw them lead 1-0 via an Aubameyang penalty. Under Emery, they seem to have a new found confidence and system that allowed them to get back into the game and eventually winning it 4-2. They may not be title contenders as yet but this could be a great platform for them to build on and challenge for the EPL title in the near future.
