ARSENAL are under new management — by order of Peaky Blinders fan Unai Emery.
The Spaniard revealed this week he had found the Gunners in decline when he arrived in the summer.

And there was an urgent need to stop the defensive rot that had set in during the final years of Arsene Wenger’s 22-year reign.
But Emery knows he must also improve his command of the English language. . . so he is watching programmes like the BBC’s period crime drama about the Shelby family starring Cillian Murphy.
The Emirates boss revealed: “I am watching to improve my English.
“Peaky Blinders is good but it is difficult, from Birmingham. And it’s very aggressive. But it’s good, it’s good.”

It may be a while before Emery develops a Brummie twang but he wants his new gang to take down top-six rivals Bournemouth, led by “Nice Guy” Eddie Howe, at the Vitality Stadium today.
Emery, 47, added: “Now I think Bournemouth are living in a good moment in history, personally for the players and coach, and also for their supporters.
“The atmosphere will be very good for them — and for us. And I want to push my team, to push my players.
“It is not easy to win and the preparation is very important, with the concentration at a very high level. And then impose our quality.”
