Arsenal boss Unai Emery has insisted he remains ‘confident’ in his players despite the Gunners’ poor form.
The North-Londoners sit fifth in the Premier League table and missed out on a huge opportunity to go third but put in a severely lacklustre performance at Sheffield United, losing 1-0.
That extended Arsenal’s horrendous away form under the Spaniard to five losses in their last ten games away from the Emirates Stadium but he maintains that his team will improve.
Talking after the loss to the Blades, he said: “In my career it’s normal to have difficult moments and criticism for our work and my job. We are in one point of view. The supporters’ point of view and their opinion, we need to accept that.
“We lost a very big opportunity in the Premier League to go third in the table. We are fifth and have chances on Sunday. We have to get better but it’s one process.
“The most important is the club and team. Our objective is clear on where we want to get. I am very confident in the players, in our job, in our work, in the club strategy and in our way.”
The Gunners can currently be backed at a price of 10/11 with William Hill to finish in the Premier League top four come the end of the season.
