Unai Emery refuses to get carried away by Arsenal's great run

Arsenal news Per Mertesacker

So far he's overseen 11 matches in all competitions winning all but two (defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea in the Premier League).

"I want his performance to be like another player", the Gunners manager said.

"If they decide we are going to play Monday, we don't stop to think if it is better or not to play Monday".

Wenger said this week Ozil's retirement from Germany's national team could demotivate the midfielder, but Emery reiterated his demands are the same for his entire squad. The supporters can enjoy it with us but also we're speaking with our reality every day.

He could work in tandem with Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Silva would have two of the league's best goalscoring midfielders at his disposal.

"He played 45 minutes against the under-23s for us today [Thursday]".

And Emery believes City, Chelsea and Liverpool, who share the Premier League lead on 20 points from eight matches, remain the benchmark.

Victory in the Europa League and a top-four finish in the Premier League would constitute an excellent first season for Unai Emery at Arsenal.

"If we are remembering the last match at the Emirates (against Watford), we won but not playing like we want, with the control against the opposition".

The game against Leicester is very big and very hard.

"Leicester are a very good team and play with a clear identity under Claude Puel".

"After, we are going to play Thursday, we are going to play Sunday also, two matches very quickly after Leicester".

Aaron Ramsey is Arsenal's longest-serving player - but not for much longer.

Ramsey's future is still be resolved and the Wales worldwide is set to leave the Gunners on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign unless the situation changes.

"I'm thinking about Monday's match first".

"It's hard for me to comment on because I'm not there but I do know he's a great player - if it was me I know I would want to keep him around".

"It's the same, my answer".

Ramsey said during the global break that he has no intention of pushing for a move in January, and Emery urged the midfielder to stay focused on the next match. The future is tomorrow. "Individual things are not for me to speak about now".
