Pires, who was part of Arsenal's Invincibles side that went 49 games without defeat and clinched the title in 2004, believes Emery is fully vindicating the Gunners' decision to appoint him as Arsene Wenger's successor.

"Nowadays it's very hard for a coach to stay 22 years", Emery said in an interview with Spanish sports daily Marca on Thursday. "I analyse matches and then I transfer it to video and I teach the players". We are improving things. But also we have ambition and we want more and we need more. Arsenal was in decline.

The Washington Wizards have been an absolute mess this season, and on Monday night, the world finally saw it spill over. Since Wall joined the team, it has finished no higher than fourth in the Eastern Conference.


"Before Wenger arrived, Arsenal celebrated winning 1-0 and were based on defensive solidity", Emery said. "I talked with a lot of people who had interacted with him in his time and it was very reassuring".

The 33-year-old has been training with the Gunners for the last month, however, and Emery has said that the club captain could feature for Arsenal Under-23s at the start of next week. We had to stop this, and begin climbing.

Emery has been charged with the task of forcing Arsenal back into that pack, while challenges for domestic silverware are always expected in north London - with the club having enjoyed considerable success in the FA Cup over recent years.

"We'll see if we can finish with some trophies".

Well, that depends on how you define 'secure.' Arsenal's defensive frailties have proven prominent, particularly in their last match against Wolves, but Leno has been between the sticks to pick up the pieces. But how many have we conceded? 15. He encouraged me to play out from the back, showed me how to and gave me confidence. I know Bournemouth and they are a very prepared team with tactically good movement on the pitch and with a big intensity with each player and when they are playing there, we know it is very hard. "So we have that robustness built into our business model that we can have some seasons in the Europa League and still make the investments we need". "Our aim is to be in the top four but it isn´t easy".
