Unai Emery names the only ideal Gunner during Arsenal’s loss to Everton

Unai Emery names the only ideal Gunner during Arsenal’s loss to Everton

Arsenal suffered a damaging blow in their pursuit of a top four finish when going down 1-0 to Everton today.

The Gunners knocked out CSKA Moscow at this stage of the Europa League last season (6-3 on aggregate) before falling to Atletico Madrid in the semi finals.

Emery will undoubtedly already be looking at certain players to bring in to the club this summer, but who should he consider targeting from the Spanish La Liga?

"We are still in a good position and still in a good atmosphere", he said.

"We're defending badly at the moment, even when it was 11 against 10, and that means we can not control the game", said Ancelotti.

"I have respect for every coach and I think Ancelotti is top", added Emery. In the first half, we were consistent, we didn't concede good chances for them but they scored from one throw in, unfortunately for us, and in the attacking third, we needed more.

Unai Emery admits Arsenal "need to win" their Europa League quarter-final first-leg meeting with Napoli at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday given their poor record away from home.

"That's the main reason he didn't start those two matches", he said. With Arsenal chasing the game, he looked flat and out of ideas.

So far in the Premier League this season they have won only five out 15 games, losing six.

"We need to recognise our frustration, and we are learning that", he told Sky Sports when asked whether Ozil's actions were borne out of frustration at the scoreline. They do not know how to defend.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is in line for a recall to the Arsenal starting line-up after being used off the bench in the past two games. I don't get the decision to play Elneny and Mkhitaryan.
