Under-fire Emery vows to silence Arsenal's critics

Denis Suarez may take more time before he gets ready to start games.

The seriousness of the English Premier League outfit Arsenal was well placed under doubt in the last few days after it was reported that they have only got about £40 million available for manager Unai Emery for the summer window.

The 25-year-old made his Arsenal debut from the bench against Manchester City - his former club - playing 24 minutes in the 3-1 loss at the Etihad Stadium. "But already from the first day with us, he was already [giving a] good performance".

"Above all we must work hard, take a good feeling in training and then show it in the match".

Emery, the most successful coach in Europa League history, can legitimately expect to wait until March before deciding whether that competition offers a more realistic opportunity of Champions League qualification than a league placing. One month ago, we were in the same situation. "The first is to think we need to win and after that it's how we can win - preparing tactically and individually".

"We know it's not going to be easy, that's for sure, because we are up against some great teams such as Chelsea and Manchester United but we need to try and stand firm as a team and battle in every game". The first is to think we need to win and after it's how we can win this match - (in terms of) preparing tactically and individually'.

"We can have better balance [in performances] when we prepare by thinking it's going to be very hard", Emery said. The next opportunity is Saturday against Huddersfield.

"Defensively, the Gunners are just not very good and I've been a bit puzzled by some of Unai Emery's decisions", Lawrenson wrote in his BBC Sport column. After that, we know we can win. I want to do the same on Saturday against Huddersfield.
