Gunners starlets hailed by Emery
Unai Emery has high hopes for his Arsenal starlets as they continue to impress in the United States.
Much has been made of Arsenal's pursuit of new players, and while Emery admits moves are being made to make signings, he is delighted with the way his young stars are stepping up to the plate.
Eddie Nketiah has been the standout with three goals in as many matches in the US, while Gabriel Martinelli, Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka and James Olayinka have also found the back net.
"Our mind is that we are starting the first match Newcastle and we are preparing every player," he said.
"Some players missed coming to join with the national team, but to the players that are here, the young players, it is the moment for them to show how we can use them to help us now and in the season and with other players to prepare with our structure and be competitive.
"We know with our last year, it is positive to continue in our way. We were one point only away from the top four, but we need to do more, one more step.
"I am positive we will achieve signing some good players to help us, but at the moment I think we are looking very well. I am very happy with the players and we are working behind with the club all we can to improve with some players from the transfer market."
