Emery demands first-half improvement despite 11th straight Arsenal win

Emery demands first-half improvement despite 11th straight Arsenal win

 

Danny Welbeck’s late goal handed the Gunners yet another win, but according to their manager there is still better to come
Unai Emery demanded Arsenal improve their first-half performances despite the Gunners recording their 11th straight win in all competitions by beating Sporting CP. But, as in Monday’s Premier League defeat of Leicester City, Arsenal did not impress in a flat first-half performance.

Although Arsenal are closing in on Europa League qualification, Emery feels there is an obvious area where his team can get better in the weeks to come.

“Each match there is a big opportunity to improve and one is this,” Emery told a news conference. “We spoke about it before the match.

“When we were in the dressing room at half-time we spoke and said, ‘okay today also, we cannot impose our game in first 45 minutes, but the second half we have the opportunity to change the result and continue in our way, thinking only of winning this match and improving things in the second half’.

“And I think the team did that in the second 45 minutes. But we need to continue finding the solution for the first half to be better.

“The match, for the 90 minutes, there were different things happening tactically and individually.

“The first half is not clear for us, there was not a lot of chances. The second half step by step we imposed our job, our play to win this match.” Emery has regularly spoken of his desire for Arsenal to thrive in the Europa League, a competition he won three years in a row with Sevilla.

Paul Pogba’s brother, Mathias, has claimed Manchester United “have only one great player” in their squad.

Pogba publicly stated his intention to leave Old Trafford for a new challenge, but failed to secure a move away, despite interest from Real Madrid and Juventus.

But he has remained at the Theatre of Dreams and brother Mathias says he is focused on the job in hand, because United have only one ‘great player’ in David De Gea.

“Paul knows that he cannot leave Manchester United so he’s going to focus on this season.

“It’s not easy right now, because he has a lot of responsibility in the team. A lot of big players have left.

“The only great player is De Gea, the goalkeeper, which means he’s going to have to put a lot of effort in every game,” Mathias told El Chiringuito.

Pogba has started each of United’s four Premier League games so far this season, but is yet to find the net.

We reported that Ronaldo beat Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix and Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, to win the award on Tuesday.

Ferguson was among the first to congratulate Ronaldo.

In a touching video message, Ferguson was quoted by Talksport as saying: “Congratulations on a great achievement and a wonderful night you’re going to have in Portugal.

“I’m really sorry I can’t be with you, but I look back and see you as a young lad at 17 years of age who came to Manchester United, how you have progressed as a human being and a fantastic sportsman.

“I want to say to you, and your mother, and all your family, and all of your kids; well done.

“You have been an absolute pleasure for me to have known, to have worked with, and to have seen you progress into the footballer you were.

“So, good luck, have a great night, and well done.”

Ferguson signed Ronaldo from Sporting Lisbon in 2003.

Ronaldo spent six years at Manchester United before he joined Real Madrid.

His relationship with Ferguson is well known with the forward claiming he ‘taught me everything’ and that ‘he was like a father to me’.

Ronaldo was recently included in FIFA’s final three-man shortlist for the Men’s Player of the Year award.
