Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal record compared to Unai Emery’s after 50 games in charge

Mikel Arteta bought up his half century of games as Arsenal manager during the disappointing 3-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.

The landmark occasion is certainly not one the Spaniard will be looking to celebrate anytime soon.

The reverse and their performance serves to underline the amount of work that still needs to be done at the Emirates.

Despite that the consensus seems to be that Arteta is doing a good job in north London, even if the numbers say differently.

The former Manchester City No 2 took charge in December 2019 and has already lifted the FA Cup.

This term though, following summer investment, Arsenal look to have gone backwards, at least on paper.

Unai Emery’s time in charge was short, but certainly not sweet, yet his record makes for better reading than Arteta’s.

The current Arsenal boss has won 21 of his 50 games in charge – five fewer than Emery won in the same time period.

The difficult reading does not end there with Arteta losing 17 of his 50 games while Emery tasted defeat in 12.

Arteta’s Arsenal have also been far less prolific in front of goal, scoring 72 in his half century of games.

Emery’s Gunners in the same period scored 91 times.

The current Arsenal manager has managed to sure up the team’s defence however, conceding fewer and keeping more clean sheets.

Despite the changes in the Emirates dugout Arsene Wenger’s record stands above those of both Emery and Arteta.

The Frenchman’s final years were a turbulent time with fan anger at an all-time high.

Nevertheless, Wenger won 27 of his final 50 matches in charge and saw his side score 92 times.

He also kept more clean sheets – 18 – than the two men who proceeded him.
