Emery urges Arsenal to ‘write a new history’ as Liverpool loom

Emery urges Arsenal to ‘write a new history’ as Liverpool loom

The start of the post-Wenger era at Arsenal wasn't great as the Gunners lost to holders Manchester City and Chelsea. "But I need also to smile in other moments", he said.

A win for the Jurgen Klopp's men will help them keep the pressure on league leaders Manchester City while Arsenal will get to further prove their title credentials if they salvage a victory at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Whether you put Arsenal in such a bracket is, I suppose, key to how you will bet in this one, but I suggest their attack is more than good enough to find the target. They are a very good team, an intense team and they require a lot of work for us to battle them. Unai Emery's side lies at fourth sport just two points adrift of the third-placed Chelsea.

The rebuild required since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement remains a steady, ongoing process, but if their rediscovery of the resilience that gave them so many points late on in games under Ferguson becomes a regular feature it will ensure they maintain their present momentum.

"We need also to do a big match in individual duels against them and also tactically, I think we need to be together and play with our capacity, identity and style and we need to impose on them".

"It's hard for 90 minutes but in moments we need to impose our ideas in a duel of 90 minutes".

That was ended last weekend when they drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace but the Gunners can be very encouraged with the start they've made under Emery. "The characteristic each player has is important, and Iwobi can impact on the match", Emery said. Emery hasn't had the best start to London life in terms of playing in the big games. Because he scored against Chelsea, and I want him to be more in the box, to have more chances to score.

"But he can improve, he can do better".

He has also pulled off a number of important saves, including a strong left-hand to stop Harry Maguire's powerful header from finding the corner of his goal in Arsenal's 3-1 win over Leicester.

"I just think the defence is awful, all over the place, and no different to what it was before".

"Not for all the people in football, though".
