Emery calls on Arsenal to be ‘consistent and competitive’ against Wolves

Unai Emery has called on Arsenal to be ‘consistent and competitive’ as they prepare to face Wolves.

Arsenal travel to Molineux on Wednesday night, knowing they will move back into the Premier League’s top four if they avoid defeat.

Emery’s side will be looking to bounce back from Sunday’s surprise 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace, and the Spaniard has called on his players to be ‘competitive’ as they look to continue their push to finish in the top four.

“We are speaking about being consistent and competitive,” Emery told his pre-match press conference.

”Sometimes we can be competitive but less brilliant than in our game plan and we won doing that. Sometimes you are competitive, play brilliantly and it also gives you the victory.

“The last two matches away, we won against Napoli and against Watford and we weren’t brilliant. But we played competitively and it was enough for us to win.

“But we need to improve because maybe in the next match, it’s not enough for us to win. We are continuing in our way of thinking to improve, with big competitiveness.

“Tomorrow we need more. We need to be competitive and we need some moments of quality. But above all, we need our capacity to keep moving ahead but being organised and being consistent.”
