Emery reveals Arsenal will approach Napoli clash with ‘mentality to win.’

Unai Emery says Arsenal will approach their Europa League quarter-final second leg with Napoli with a ‘mentality to win’.

Arsenal travel to Naples to face the Serie A side on Thursday night, with a 2-0 lead to protect following a fine performance at the Emirates a week ago.

Despite the advantage, Emery insists his side will try to win in Italy, rather than sit back and defend their lead.

”Our mentality is to think about preparing the match, starting the game by attacking when we have the ball and have the space to run,” Emery told his pre-match press conference.

”We want to defend as well. Our first target is to win. When you score when playing matches like tomorrow’s match, you can create a good advantage.

”We know it’s going to be very difficult because they can score two or more goals with their attacking players. Our mentality tomorrow is to play the match thinking to win.”
