Unai Emery warns Arsenal fans finishing in top four will be hard

"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".

Emery's men have also lost their last three Premier League away games and have not recorded a win on the road since beating Bournemouth in November a year ago.

Emery could not have asked for a better opponent to end their away rot against, with the Terriers picking up the fewest amount of points at home this season.

Unai Emery's side sit sixth on the back of Sunday's 3-1 loss away to last season's champs, Manchester City, a point below Manchester United and three behind fourth-placed Chelsea.


Paul Merson is tipping Arsenal to keep their top-four hopes alive with a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

"The squad is focused on qualifying for the Champions League because a big club like Arsenal deserves to be playing in that competition".

With defeats at Southampton and West Ham among the other low-lights of Arsenal's travel-sick season, the thought of losing to bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium is too much for Emery to stomach.

"My first criticism is myself", Emery said. "How we are doing at home and away, we are with the possibility and the opportunity of (finishing in) the top four".


They have taken only two points in six away fixtures since then.

The Gunners only signed Denis Suarez during the transfer window, and they got his signature on loan from reigning Spanish champions Barcelona. Today he is working with different adaptation and better than last week.

"We have to continue in our way with passion and also stay calm, but above all we must work hard and take a good feeling in training and then show it in the match". We are going to play Tottenham in one month but now we need to think first about the next games, the next teams'. "But already from the first day with us, he was already with good performance, but this week he worked Monday with our coaches and also yesterday".
