Happy Unai Emery insists Arsenal ‘must improve’

Unai Emery has said he is happy to finally pick up his first win as Arsenal manager, but has insisted that his side ‘must improve’.

Arsenal went into today’s London derby against West Ham having lost their opening two Premier League encounters of the season, although they had previously faced the unenviable task of playing Man City and Chelsea.

They finally picked up their first points of the season with a 3-1 win over West Ham, although Unai Emery has insisted that there is still plenty of improvements for his players to make.

“The three points were very important. Today I saw good things, but also things for improve,” Emery told Sky Sports

“It was very important for our supporters. After 1-0, the team was improving, the players, the substitute players made the difference. It was for that I am happy but there are things we must improve.

“More transition. For the second half we were speaking in the dressing room and to help more inside with two midfielders. We need the balance, in the first half we suffered more than we want.

“It is clear for us we need to improve. Also, the win gives the confidence for the players. The first half, we needed calm. The players, they show every supporter we want and can do the second half going forward with balance, and win the match.

“We need this control with possession with the ball and also going forward with balance, which is important.”
