Emery explains Iwobi’s regularity in Arsenal lineup

Emery explains Iwobi’s regularity in Arsenal lineup

"We just have to keep working and trying to our best to win three points in every game".

"First of all I'll say that Mesut Ozil, if you are privy to some of the videos and the training ground stuff that I see, the way that he is with the lads and the way that he conducts himself - it's like none of this is happening to him".

If sloppy defending to go 2-0 down after less than half an hour was bad enough, it got worse when they switched off again after finding a foothold in the game.

Mkhitaryan added two assists of his own in the second half but Ozil made perhaps an even bigger statement after being repeatedly dropped by Emery in recent months over concerns about his defensive work rate.

"It's a very important time for us but as players, we all know that".

'Whether we are not courageous enough to play I don't know, but it wasn't good enough at all'. Here at the Emirates we were speaking about the fact we have a lot of matches to show [the fans] a complete match with one good result with the three points but with some difference between them with the goals, like today. I don't think there's an issue with Mesut's game.

"I'm very happy because the players worked a lot, and we decided to make some changes to bring in new players, to keep up the energy".

Bournemouth's goal was the 1,000th Arsenal have conceded in Premier League history, becoming the eighth team to have conceded that many in the competition.

"We need the players in the first 11 and on the bench, and a big commitment between every player to help us". "I hope he'll be okay for Wednesday".

On being one point away from Tottenham if we win on Saturday. That's the way we've got to look at things and it's the way the manager looks at things'. But that mindset takes away ownership of what we delivered with our own team. Kolasinac has been having a problem in his muscle and sometimes he is telling us to rest some matches and some minutes.

"He's really happy and all the players are happy with him and the staff and the managers are all happy with him".
