Arsenal

Gunners set to attack says Emery

18th April 2019, 05:06 by Michael Holland

Unai Emery has vowed to go on the attack against Napoli despite the fact Arsenal already hold a 2-0 lead.

The Gunners have struggled on the road this season and an unconvincing 1-0 victory against a Watford side which played for 79 minutes with 10 men was only their sixth Premier League win away from the Emirates Stadium.

While the challenge of facing Napoli, second only to Juventus in Serie A, poses a different challenge Arsenal do head to Naples defending a 2-0 lead from last week's Europa League quarter-final first leg.

There could be a temptation to sit in and defend but Emery insists he will set his team out to score - knowing one away goal would leave Napoli needing to net four times to get through.

"We know 90 minutes here can be long, but we want to play this match not thinking about the first leg," he said. "We want to play tomorrow thinking to win, thinking to score, thinking to push, thinking to stop them.

"Thinking also tactically to be together and thinking when we have the space to attack the space. And also respecting the tactical structure and individual work.

"They have a lot of players with a big quality to push against us and give us a lot of problems but we also have the players to fight against them with our quality."
