Arsenal

Emery upbeat over Gunners top-four chances

8th April 2019, 09:39 by Michael Holland

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says their top-four destiny remains in their own hands despite a 1-0 defeat away at Everton on Sunday.

A 10th-minute goal from Phil Jagielka, who was not in the team 30 minutes before kick-off but received a late call-up after illness ruled out Michael Keane, was enough to inflict a sixth away defeat of the season on the Gunners.

Arsenal have conceded in 15 consecutive top-flight away matches for the first time since February 1985 and, with four of their remaining six Premier League matches on the road, they face a tough task.

They could be knocked out of the top four by Chelsea on Monday, although they will have a match in hand and that is what is foremost in Emery's thoughts.

"I am in my mind in the same as before the match," he said. "We know it is going to be difficult and today was a very good opportunity to take the three points and go third, but after the result we are fourth and we need to be consistent.

"We are going to have chances also in the next matches and it depends on us and on other teams. After the result we can be negative because (we have) three points less (than we could have had), but it is in our hands to continue taking chances to be in the top four.

"It is a bad result, not a good performance, but we are fourth."
