Arsenal take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium later today in a mouth-watering Premier League clash. Emery makes bold promise ahead of Leicester clash
The Foxes are currently in third place in the league table, whilst Arsenal sit six points behind them.
The Gunners have had some poor performances in recent weeks due to shaky defensive displays, but manager Unai Emery has promised an improvement in the coming weeks, starting with today. When speaking in his press conference, Emery said:
“I was speaking with the players this week about how is our next step to improve. And it’s clear, there are two ways: play better with the ball, play with more confidence with our style, and take more responsibility on the pitch.Unai Emery
“My responsibility is the first but also I give them because they are on the pitch to take that responsibility to play better. And then is for our defensive structure to be strong and get better defensively is our first challenge tomorrow.Unai Emery
“Last year, we were looking for that improvement during the season and we achieved it in a lot of moments – and I know now we can do better and we will do better.Unai Emery
READ ARSENAL VERDICT
The Gunners are coming up against one of the league’s most exciting attacking teams.
The Foxes put nine goals past Southampton a few matches ago and then backed that up with a convincing 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
They’ve found the net 27 times in the league, whilst Arsenal have conceded 15 times, so Arsenal will need to be at their absolute best defensively to keep the Foxes out.
