Unai Emery has done an amazing job of taking Arsenal to 20 games in a row unbeaten (out of just 22 in total) and as Arsenal attempt to make it ’21 today!’ against Huddersfield, the boss is still insisting that his team needs to get even better.
Emery said in the Guardian: “Football happens very quickly, with positive things, negative things, but you need to learn. And you need to create a new victory, a new way every day. We want to create a stronger idea with good positioning on the pitch with the ball, good combinations between us so we can dominate the match.
“But we know the opposition want to do the same. And we want to be further away from our box when the opposition has the ball. Our challenge is improving this. We are conceding more goals than we want. Our balance is positive but we can improve that and every day we are working tactically. We want to confirm in every match our improvement.”
After our tough matches against Tottenham and Manchester United, a home game against Huddersfield should be a walk in the park, but Emery is making sure that the Gunners do not get complacent and drop their guard.
I am sure the boss will make sure they are fully concentrated this afternoon…
