We Need Control And Intensity At Every Point – Emery
Arsenal Boss Unai Emery has watched his new side lose their first two games of the season against Chelsea and Manchester City but believes his team could flip the switch to the winning side against West HamHUnited this weekend.
He also admitted his team lacked concentration in their first two games, which has left them languishing in 16th position on the PL table.
“My idea is control,” said the Spaniard. “Control in the game – but the opposition want the same thing.
“I know we need intensity in every moment in the games. This control is to not let the opposition do their work, their play.
“For me, we didn’t have the control in our first two matches. Saturday is another match, tactically it is different. I want to have more control to find the win in this match.”
The Spaniard has been criticised for his style of play and decision to play out from the back but he insists, he is happy with the way the team is adapting.
“We want to go forward and score. Maybe we can do it with one long pass directly or progress with the passes, control with possession to win games,” he said.
“We can find [well-worked] goals like we did against Chelsea and we can find them with less passes on the pitch.
“For me the important thing is all the players know in each match the best way to attack.”
