Unai Emery has demanded more from Arsenal players as they prepare to take on Leicester City in the English Premier League at the Emirates Stadium, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Emery who has led his side to nine straight win in all competitions warns Gunners fans it is too early to sing they have got their old Arsenal back as they prepare for the clash.
“I am not agreeing totally with the response of the supporters. I think we need to improve a lot,” Emery said during his press conference on Thursday.
“I think we have to continue doing a lot of the things to get better. Our demands need to be very high. The supporters can enjoy it with us, but also we’re speaking with our reality every day.
“I am not agreeing totally with the response of the supporters. I think we need to improve a lot.
“I think we have to continue doing a lot of the things to get better. Our demands need to be very careful.
“We need to improve because, for example, the match against Fulham was a very good result and a very good game for 90 minutes. But in the first 45 minutes I thought we needed to do better.
“If we are remembering the last match at the Emirates [against Watford ], we won but not playing like we want, with the control against the opposition.
“For me now, the most important thing is not to rush. The next game against Leicester is very big, very difficult.”
“Leicester are a very good team and play with a clear identity under Claude Puel. They are very competitive, have very good players and we need every single player, and our mentality together to be stronger than in the last match.”
Emery also reveals that Petr Cech is “very close” to returning from injury.
The Gunners captain has been out for two weeks due to injury.
