Arsenal fans have been waiting for the Unai Emery effect to come into play after our two losses to Man City and Chelsea, and against west Ham at the Emirates today the pressure is going to even greater to finally get three points on the board.
Jack Wilshere’s new side are also pointless after two defeats to Liverpool and Bournemouth and will also be desperate to get their first point, but there is no room for error for the Gunners. Emery admitted it wouldn’t be easy but agrees the fans need to see some improvement as well as the points. He told Arsenal.com: “In our process, we are going 38 matches [in total] against all the teams.
“Whether you are playing against Manchester City, it’s the same as if you’re playing against West Ham on Saturday. There are three points on this game. It’s clear that every game demands different things tactically. After the first two matches, we have two defeats and we need to win this match against West Ham. The difficulty is in this game because West Ham are a good team with good players and a good coach. They know the Premier League very well and they have a lot of new players. We are thinking in our way and about our work to create our ideas and our system on Saturday with our supporters at the Emirates. I think it’s very important to show them a better performance than in the two first matches.
“We are preparing well, I am feeling well when I look at the players in training every day.”
Emery seems confident that we are improving. The players keep saying that the training is paying off, well today is the time to prove it. Nothing less than three points is acceptable.
Let’s get behind the team and make sure it happens!
