Emery happy with Gunners spirit

6th April 2019, 10:55 by Nick Harris

Unai Emery says his Arsenal players are showing the right spirit as they push for a top-four spot in the Premier League.

The Gunners travel to Everton on Sunday and all the players are pulling together in the same direction, according to Emery.

Mesut Ozil, who is pushing to retain his place in the starting line-up, earned particular praise from the boss.

"Mesut is working well and helping us. I am very happy with him," said Emery. "The team has good effort and good spirit and each player is helping us with his quality.

"This is the spirit I want.

"They are doing that and Mesut is another."

Arsenal are currently level on points with fifth-placed Chelsea, who face West Ham on Monday, but the Gunners have a game in hand on them and Manchester United a further place behind.
