Emery on the defensive after no Arsenal players make England squad

Thompson drools over Benitez

Thompson drools over Benitez

The Arsenal boss knows Benitez from their time managing in Spain and says he has huge respect for the former Real Madrid and Valencia coach.

But Emery admits he would love to follow in the successful footsteps of his fellow Spaniard, who has won 11 major honours in his career, including the Champions League.

Arsenal take on Newcastle United in the Premier League on Monday and the Gunners now have to most certainly win this game in order to keep their top-four spot.

"Why? Because the players know each other much better, they know exactly what we are trying to do - and maybe also Almiron is giving us a little bit of something different in attack and helping Rondon and helping Ayoze". It is a big reference for us, for me'.

Arsenal are now still in the fight for a top-four finish this season as they aim to secure Champions League qualification in Emery's first campaign in charge.

"First is in the table, second is improving as a team, in our system, tactically and individually".

He said he would make the budget late, if lawmakers did not come to final agreement on public campaign finance reform. It also contains a provision that would allow (but not force) localities to impose a 5-cent tax on paper bags.

"At the moment, we are fine and I have read some players talking about that, so we will see if we are safe enough, where we can go".

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Cazorla said: "Arsenal have adapted to the big change and are doing very well with Emery".

"It's hard for him to play matches this season but he is progressing very well and maybe the doctor will tell us he can come train with us in the last weeks of this season". But we know this is hard and each possibility, like Monday, is good.

Arsenal have proved convincing while playing with both three and four-strong defences, options that could prove crucial given Lucas Torreira's absence through suspension. Every year is different, every manager is different, the players are different.

"In the last two matches, we started with 3-4-1-2 but we finished playing 3-4-3". In 90 minutes we have different systems and different players.

"We need a sporting director, it's coming. The best possibility for us is for all the players to be ready to help us with a good mentality".
