Arsenal

Suarez form encourages boss

30th March 2019, 08:36 by Nick Harris

Denis Suarez's form over the international break has demonstrated he is ready to excel for Arsenal, according to Unai Emery.

The 25-year-old has been largely peripheral since his arrival in January on loan from Barcelona and he is yet to make a competitive start for the Gunners.

But an impressive outing at the club's recent warm-weather training camp in Dubai could lead to him finally featuring in their starting XI.

Suarez played the full 90 minutes and created a goal for Carl Jenkinson in their 3-2 friendly victory over Al Nasr and Emery was encouraged by what he saw.

The Gunners boss said: "He is okay for starting in the first XI, to give us this impact.

"We are going to need everybody, every player for the next matches.

"We decided to go away to train for four days and play a match in Dubai. But it's the same idea, the same spirit."

Asked about the time it had taken Suarez to settle, Emery added:"It's normal. Now we have a lot of players ready, with a big mentality and with a big performance to play and help us."
