Arsenal manager Unai Emery

Arsenal boss Emery ‘looking forward’ to Man City clash

Unai Emery says that he is looking forward to Arsenal’s trip to play Manchester City in the Premier League this Sunday.

The Gunners lost 2-0 at home to Pep Guardiola’s City team on the opening weekend of the season, but Emery claims that he is looking forward to the challenge at the Etihad Stadium.

‘It will be a tough match,’ Emery told his pre-match press conference.

‘Our challenge is [big] against every team, but on Sunday we are playing against the best – Sunday is against the best. I think with Liverpool, they are having a very big Premier League season. They are very hard [to beat]. They have lost some matches but I think that was an accident.’

‘In another moment, in another match, they could have won against Newcastle. They are playing at home and for us, it will be very difficult. But we are looking forward to playing, to showing that we can [win] and want [to win]. I think in Sunday’s match every player will be with a very big ambition to show their best performance and quality against them.’

Arsenal are currently 4th in the Premier League, ahead of Chelsea on goal difference and seven points behind their north London rivals Spurs, who sit in third.
