Arsenal

Emery looks to end away-day blues

25th February 2019, 03:49 by Michael Holland

Arsenal will have to start performing away from home if they are to keep their place in the top four, Unai Emery says.

Arsenal's 2-0 victory at home to Southampton coupled with Manchester United dropping points in their 0-0 draw with Liverpool has put them back on course to qualify for the Champions League.

Further fixtures with Bournemouth, on Wednesday, and next Saturday against rivals Tottenham could yet determine whether that remains a realistic ambition, but following an improved performance Emery has demanded they seize on their rediscovered momentum.

First-half finishes from Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan should have been added to, and manager Emery said: "We cannot control the results of Manchester United, Chelsea or Tottenham. Only when we play them. That is the only moment we can decide their results.

"Most important is to go game by game. Same; three points versus Tottenham but it's one game when we can control their results and ours. Our first thought is to win on Wednesday. Be organised.

"We have a lot of matches and it's important to have big performances like (this).

"Our first competition for us is the Premier League. It gives us the possibility to be consistent. At home we are feeling strong but away, although the last match we won at Huddersfield, we need to take more positive steps away."
