Emery has no time for negative vibes

Emery has no time for negative vibes

Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang register as Arsenal beat top-four rivals Manchester United 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners punished that miss three minutes later, when Xhaka's swerving strike from 25 yards out completely bamboozled David de Gea and nestled into the left-hand corner.

Arsenal, on the other hand, will leapfrog United and move into fourth should they defeat the Red Devils for the first time since May 2017.

With Chelsea drawing at home to Wolves earlier, Unai Emery's men now have the edge in a race for the Champions League spots that is getting seriously interesting.

"We started slow, maybe it was a backlash from Wednesday night", Solskjaer said.

"He should always get them simple tap-ins, finishes - like Rom's scored in the last few games".

"We played against a big team and at some moments showed we can fight and battle with them, but we lost and that is the reality", added Emery on the FA Cup tie between the pair.

Alexandre Lacazette was inches away from converting Sead Kolasinac's inviting centre as Arsenal looked to take the game to United.

"It's not scratching your head. Sometimes it happens, we hit the woodwork twice and had five very big chances ourselves".

"He needs £200m-£250m. They still need three defenders, they still need a midfielder, they still need a striker".

"In the hours after a match like that, it's not easy for me". Of course, the penalty - I think the referee will be disappointed when he sees this, I don't think it's a penalty. It was by no means a awful performance - particularly as they were able to create a number of decent opportunities in front of goal - but lapses of concentration at the back from De Gea and Fred ended up costing them. "The ball moves so odd, and when you see it on telly, it looks like it goes to David's left and it just changes direction". I think there is no problem with Micki, and for example, his 40 or 50 minutes playing like a right-back, he played well. We will play with confidence and everything will be good. With the scores level at 0-0, the home side began to press forward looking for the opening goal.

Manchester United seem to have found a new gear under Ole Gunnar Solskjkaer and the likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford seem to be flourishing under the caretaker boss.

"Not at all", he said.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno was then thankful that the frame of his goal kept out Fred's first-time shot 20 minutes in, with the ball spinning away from the target.
