‘When we are worse than the opposition, we feel that’ – Unai Emery
Arsenal manager Unai Emery has said his Arsenal players allow the opposition players being better get to them.
He was speaking after Arsenal’s 3-2 away loss to Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
“The mentality is the same,
“When players are better they feel that.
“Our players have the mentality. When we are worse than the opposition we feel that. There are good things with some players. We have players with good possibilities.”
He also said the champions showed their superiority today, especially in the first half.
“They showed their superiority today. Two different times in the first half we struggled but together, defensively, being strong in some moments and keeping the result like we can have an option.
“All the small details we need to work well and not concede [weren’t there]. The first half we can be with some optimism to do something different in the second half.
“It was different. We opened the match more than the first half. They showed today with the possession against us, getting our defence position very deep, they can win like in the first half. The result is the difference between us.”
The loss meant Arsenal drop to sixth on the log, after United and Chelsea both won their respective matches.
