MIKEL ARTETA

Unai Emery looked immaculate in his fitted Arsenal suit bearing an embroidered club badge with red thread. He wore an expensive but not ostentatious watch and his jet black hair was slicked back. The only hint of a rushed few days on the red-eye to the US was the fact his cufflinks on a stylish cream shirt were white pins rather than more classic silver a man of his stature might sport – a nod to the fact he perhaps hadn’t had time to shop for himself recently.

Unai Emery romped home in a three-horse race among prime candidates Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has revealed after unveiling the club’s new head coach.

The day after Arsene Wenger’s last game as Arsenal manager has seen a significant shift in the market in who will replace him at The Emirates – with former player Mikel Arteta emerging as the clear 6/4 favourite to become the next Gunners’ boss.

Arsene Wenger was in playful mood at London Colney, the heart of the kingdom he has ruled for 22 years, on Wednesday.

Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has been well backed by punters with bookies now making him second favourite to become the club’s next manager according to the latest prices from Betway.

After seven league games, it’s pretty safe to say the Premier League table is now taking shape. There is a long way to go before the jigsaw is completed, but the pieces are being arranged into neat enough piles.
