Unai Emery has been credited with ushering in an exciting new era for Arsenal, with Nigel Winterburn of the opinion that regression under Arsene Wenger is now being forgotten.
Towards the end of a 22-year reign for an iconic Frenchman, the Gunners found themselves slipping down the Premier League pecking order.
Former Gunners defender Winterburn told talkSPORT of the changes at Emirates Stadium: “We’re in a new era for Arsenal.
“Since Arsenal have moved to the new stadium, they’ve found it very difficult to compete.
“Yeah, they’ve won FA Cups, but in terms of Premier League titles, it’s just non-existent.
“As a club we’re looking to try and get back among the elite, and I think it’s going to be very diffucilt for Arsenal to do that.
“Arsenal supporters realise we’ve got a long, long way to go.
“We’re seeing different scenarios with Unai Emery: team selections, formations, substitutions at half-time.
“But the more important thing is it looks like the team are together and there’s a driving force there.
“There’s a good feeling around the stadium which was not there last season.”
