Emery: Arsenal’s unbeaten run is not the result of a friendly fixture list

Unai Emery insists there are no easy matches in the Premier League as he dismisses idea Arsenal’s 16-match unbeaten run was the result of a friendly fixture list

  • Arsenal are looking to go 17 games without defeat when they face Bournemouth
  • They have faced likes of Wolves, Crystal Palace and Leicester in recent weeks
  • But Unai Emery does not accept the notion that it’s been plain sailing for his side

‘Every match in the Premier League, we have to play for three points,’ Emery said. ‘It was the same three points against Liverpool, like another team.

‘I said at the start of this press conference, we are well. Yes, we are well. Sixteen matches, we’ve not lost, it’s good. But also we have ambition and we want more and we need more. In the three last matches, we draw. It is not enough. We need more.’

Arsenal have been criticised for their slow starts, with them yet to head in with a half-time lead.

‘We can speak about statistics for a long time,; Emery added. ‘We are scoring a lot. It’s good? Yeah, it’s perfect, 26 is a very big statistic in front of goal. But also we are conceding 15.

‘We need more. I am knowing every day, the players better. I am knowing every day, the competition better.’ 

Arsenal, who sit fifth, are looking for No 17 without defeat when they travel to Bournemouth
