Arsenal boss Unai Emery sets team two big targets

23 Septembre 2018

Alex Iwobi has hailed Arsenal's "great" start to their 2018-19 Uefa Europa League campaign after defeating Vorskla 4-2 in an Emirates atmosphere described by the midfielder as a "party".

Cazorla rejected the notion that Arsenal were in "a comfort zone" under former manager Wenger - who was replaced after 23 years in charge by Emery in May - but feels that they could have come closer to success in the Premier League.

And speaking to Sky Sports, when questioned about his push for a top four finish or Europa League glory, Emery stated: "One choice? For me it is a little bit unusual, but OK, mistakes are made, I make them as well, and the assistant and ref they can make them as well". The doctors will wait until tomorrow, but I hope it's not important.

"Scoring over 100 goals for Arsenal is a great achievement for me personally, and then just the last year-and-a-half was tough, I can't lie".

"I believe that they will do that and for sure they will keep on improving in the future".

"I came for the Premier League". I didn't think so. Their side had won their previous three Premier League matches, and didn't look like stopping.

Emery, pictured, has also inherited the former manager's weird approach to the transfer window too, with seemingly astute signings in goalkeeper Bernd Leno and defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira benched or unused in favour of the ageing and rather faulty Petr Cech and 19-year-old French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi. "But also I have a lot of confidence in [Alexandre] Lacazette", he said.

"It's our disappointment. Little by little, we are conceding a few chances to the opposition, the same like in Newcastle", Emery said. Second, working tactically to be more compact.

"We have fun together". "On Sunday I think we will have big options to choose the best first XI". "I think we need to improve this".

"Of course, (Petr) is a big personality". Walcott knocked a long ball forward expertly to Richarlison who took off towards goal again but his left-foot shot was palmed behind once more by the goalkeeper.

Everton looked the more likely to score the game's opener, but the hosts snatched a lead slightly against the run of play and built on their advantage to climb into sixth place in the standings.

"We obviously played Arsenal two weeks after I moved [losing 5-1], and it still felt like I was a little bit there, because it was too soon".
