UNAI EMERY has brought the nastiness back to Arsenal — and their supporters are loving it.
For too long the Gunners have been a soft touch, with diminutive midfielders who can be trampled all over.

But “we’ve got our Arsenal back” is the song being sung at the Emirates — and Emery is delighted.
The Arsenal boss said: “I feel proud when the fans sing that they have their Arsenal back but we have to continue with calmness and humility.”
Emery knows it is controlled aggression that will be the key to extending his team’s unbeaten run to 20 matches when they visit Manchester United tomorrow.
But the Spanish manager certainly did not appear to be unduly concerned by the club yesterday being charged with failing to control their players during the 4-2 North London derby victory on Sunday.
