The Gunners manager just can’t get it right when facing his opposite number, stretching back to their time in Spain
West Ham beat Arsenal 1-0 in the Premier League’s early kick-off, which saw Manuel Pellegrini extend his unbeaten record against Unai Emery on home turf.
The manager’s paths have crossed repeatedly in their careers and against Pellegrini Emery just can’t catch a break. On away soil anyway.
The Spaniard has NEVER WON away from home against his opposite number during a managerial career that has included stints at Almeria, Valencia and Sevilla when Pellegrini was in charge of Villarreal, Real Madrid, Malaga and Manchester City.
Emery’s woes v Pellegrini
In their seventh meeting, a Declan Rice goal saw the Hammers claim all three points and it was deserved.
And the young defensive midfielder took a lot plaudits for his display in the win.
Ahead of the game, Pellegrini left nobody in any doubt about how he his team would approach the game,” he said. “I insist on the big team mentality because we are in a big club with 60,000 people behind us and we want to improve.”
