Arsenal

Gunners boss expecting tough clash

12th January 2019, 08:49 by Nick Harris

Arsenal boss Unai Emery expects a difficult afternoon when he takes his side to face West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday.

After a tricky start to life under Manuel Pellegrini, the Hammers have been making strides forward in recent months and have won three of their last five matches on home soil.

Emery knows his side can not afford any slip-ups in the race for a top four spot as they seek to move level on points with fourth-placed Chelsea, but has warned it will not be easy against a side packed with good players.

He said: "It will not be easy, I think West Ham are improving and they also have good individual players with quality, like Anderson, like Arnautovic, who are very good players.

"Usually [Manuel Pellegrini has] very offensive teams. They usually play matches with a balance tactically but above all with technical, offensive players."
