Arsenal

Emery fearful of 'best' City

2nd February 2019, 12:41 by Aidan Perkins

Unai Emery has believes Manchester City are still "the best" team around before Sunday's big clash at the Etihad between the two sides.

The Gunners boss is expecting another difficult test when he takes his side to the Premier League champions.

City are five points behind Liverpool at the top but Emery believes Pep Guardiola's men are still the benchmark for the rest although he insists his players are keen to show their abilities against such a strong opponent.

"It will be a tough match - we are playing against the best," he said.

"Now, with Liverpool, they are doing a very big Premier League this season. Maybe they have lost some matches but that is an accident.

"When they are home for us it is difficult. But we want to show everybody we can play. Every player has a big ambition to show their best quality."
