Emery praises quality Blackpool after narrow win

It is worth noting that Bournemouth have had things relatively easy up to this point; both of their matches against one of last season's top seven have resulted in their two defeats of the campaign, and more hard tests are to come with Saturday's match marking the beginning of a six-game streak during which time they will face United, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool.

The Spaniard has guided Arsenal to 12 wins from their last 13 games in all competitions but did start his tenure with losses against City and Chelsea.

'We want to write a new history, ' Emery said.

"We have spoken. It is very important to control, but I don't think he lost control".

"It is a very big test because it is against Liverpool".

"This red card to Matteo affected the balance more for them and their goal also, we can and we need to continue our work to the last minute with our performance and our players to win today".

"I could not believe it when he pulled out the red because we had got back in the game and we were in the ascendancy". I think this is the moment also to play the first derby against Tottenham.

"We saw Leicester rip Arsenal to shreds for 30 minutes..."

"We are in a good place but we go to Arsenal and if everything depends on winning at Arsenal or not, if that means we are in a good place or not, then something is wrong".

Emery turns 47 on Saturday and will be hoping to toast his birthday with victory over Liverpool - the side he beat in the 2016 Europa League final in his last match in charge of Sevilla.

The Gunners have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season after Unai Emery took over the reins from Arsene Wenger in the summer. What's worse, it's been almost as long (more than five full games) since they last scored a goal. "If the next game would be next Friday then probably both would be fit, but the next game is on Saturday and the other one on Tuesday, so that could be a bit tight".

"If Hector Bellerin is injured, you're talking about Granit Xhaka at left-back, a central midfield player, and Stephan Lichtsteiner at right-back, who has been a good player but is almost 35 now".

"These two matches are so far and also they are so near, so close", he added.
