Emery: Arsenal fans with short memories must be patient

Arsenal were 2-1 down at home to Portuguese outfit Vitoria in the Europa League when the Ivorian winger was sent on by Unai Emery in what proved to be an inspired substitution.

"We lost a very big opportunity in the Premier League to (move up to) third in the table".

His form picked up in the second half of last season and he played a key role in Liverpool's Champions League success.

After Monday night's very bad defeat at the hands of Sheffield United, we face Portuguese side Vitoria in the Europa League at home on Thursday evening.

"We need to see whether Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney will be back and I would hope that Emile Smith-Rowe could come in, as well as Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson".

"If we are competitive we can use different players at different times, some with more skills, others with more ability to put pressure and transition. Following our investigation into the alleged incidence of racist abuse on Sunday, we have issued an indefinite ban to the individual involved", Manchester United said in a statement on Tuesday.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery admitted that Nicholas Pepe's first-half miss proved to be critical in his side's 1-0 loss to Sheffield United on Monday.

Emery was Paris Saint-Germain boss when Fabinho helped Monaco beat his side to the league title in 2017, and the Spaniard admits that he wanted to sign the midfielder when he was appointed Arsenal manager previous year. I was watching the game.

The first six months he didn't play, it was an adaptation.

"We are getting there but we can do better. And this year - (we need to) be there and take it". I don't want that.

"I understand you always have to support your player because this is your team". I know he needs to do further progress in its improvement. And Liverpool responded the following day at their Premier League game with Wigan by warming up in specially-made "Suarez 7" t-shirts in a declaration of solidarity with their accused teammate.

As they improve in an increasingly familiar environment, the Arsenal also. But now he is unbelievable and I want the same with (Dani) Ceballos, with Pepe. "We are in one point of view".
