Tony Adams is not impressed by Unai Emery and believes the Spaniard is destined to fail at Arsenal.

Despite just two games in charge of the Gunners, Adams has dismissed the style of play the former Paris Saint-Germain boss is trying to implement.

Arsenal will look to get their first points on the board against West Ham today after losses to Manchester City and Chelsea, but the Gunners legend is pessimistic about the future under Emery.

"After Arsene, I was so excited with the prospect of a real change. It was a great chance to do things differently but against City it was an Arsene Wenger performance — only more so," Adams told the Sun.

"It’s the same goalkeeper, the same style of play — it just feels the same, there’s no one rocking the boat. Chief executive Ivan Gazidis has gone for a ‘head coach’ because they don’t want someone with the power Arsene had.

"But they still want to appease the fans with a style of play like Arsene had. They don’t want to lose the ideology of the ‘beautiful game’ . . . whatever that is.
