Unai Emery has spoken about Arsenal’s top-four chances in the Premier League (via Arsenal.com).
The international break is usually a bit of a pain for most football fans but it seems as if Arsenal have enjoyed themselves.
The players who didn’t travel with their countries headed for Dubai for a warm-weather training camp.
The Gunners picked up a 3-2 win over Al-Nasr Dubai but Unai Emery’s focus is on the Premier League, something he spoke about in his post-match press conference.
“It’s our objective but we know that we have to wait,” Emery said in Dubai.

“Now, in these next eight matches, we need to play with a lot of personality like we did against Manchester United.
“We know it’s going to be difficult because we are surrounded by other big teams but I think we are working very well and we are taking confidence to have chances in the last matches.
“The next game is at home with our supporters against Newcastle, so it’s up to us to enjoy each match with the possibility of finding the three points.
“Afterwards, the second way of [qualifying for the Champions League] is through the Europa League. We can play for one title and then also to take another way to reach the Champions League. We are in a good moment in good confidence, and also in a good moment physically.”
It’s going to be a tough couple of months as Arsenal look to secure a top-four place in the Premier League. The Gunners are in a good position in the table but have a pretty tough schedule which will become more difficult if Unai Emery’s side remains in Europe.
