Suarez pushing for Arsenal start after impressing Emery

  • Iwobi's Pal Tips Arsenal For Champions League

But that result came directly after defeat to West Ham and the Gunners lost their most recent outing 3-1 to Manchester City.

Unai Emery believes the mentality of his Arsenal players needs to improve if they are to address their constant failings away from home in the Premier League.

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.

Arsenal now find themselves in sixth place in the Premier League table and one point behind Manchester United in fifth after they were beaten by Manchester City at The Etihad last weekend.

"Because we are sixth". I trust in our capacity to [finish fourth] but it is like that.

'There's a big difference between the top three (Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham) and us, but we are a lot closer to Chelsea and Manchester United.




On Mkhitaryan, Emery added: "We thought first, last week, after six weeks being injured, it was not enough [for him] to play against Manchester City".

Arsenal have been handed a triple injury boost ahead of Saturday's trip to Huddersfield with Shkodran Mustafi in full training while Sokratis and Granit Xhaka have also returned to light training.

Mustafi was forced off during the closing stages of the defeat to City last Sunday due to a minor back problem but Unai Emery said after the game he hoped the injury wouldn't be anything too serious. We need to continue thinking to be in the top four but knowing it's hard.

"I think we need to continue thinking in our capacity to be in the top four but knowing it's hard", he added. "He made the very big decision not to play with the national team in the summer because he wanted to work with us and show his capacity in pre-season".

"But after this week, playing first with the U23s and then working with us, it's the first time I can think with him being us".
