A month after his sacking at Arsenal, Unai Emery has finally revealed that the 1-0 loss to Sheffield United was the source of their problems.
Arsenal had a poor start to the season and failed to win any of Emery's last seven games in all competitions and by the time he was fired, they were on their worst run since 1992.
Freddie Ljungberg was appointed on an interim basis with Mikel Arteta handed the job permanently but Arsenal's woes have failed to cease.
In an interview with Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, Emery revealed what went wrong at Arsenal, "The game against Sheffield United [a 1-0 defeat] was a bit of a turning point.
"In one month, everything got broken and we were incapable of winning a game in seven. And the tension based on the question we were asking 'what is happening to us?' was like a rolling ball that was getting bigger and bigger.
"We were trying to find a way to tactically synergize Aubameyang, Ozil, and Lacazette...and the results still didn't come.
"The team had to play with energy, needed to be capable of being solid in defense and in attack, aggressive. I think we could have turned things around but I also understand that those at the top have to take decisions and take responsibility."
