Emery hits out at Arsenal critics

Arsenal's Pierre Emerick Aubameyang celebrates after the match against Bournemouth

Arsenal's ambition during Unai Emery's first season as boss sees them chasing down "top four with some trophies", says Rob Holding.

According to Emery, the Gunners will tackle the hosts at a very high level in order to get the three points.

The north Londoners haven't qualified for Europe's premier club competition for the last two seasons.

"Today I was speaking in the dressing room with the players for half an hour, different things, tactically and other things", Emery said. Arsenal have somewhat slipped in the standings and now sit 5th courtesy some disappointing results which have seen the Gunners drop six points in the last three games.

The Gunners will take on Bournemouth on Sunday lunchtime as they look to bounce back from three straight draws in the Premier League.

"In the cup competitions we want to maintain our place in the Europa League and we're on a good run in the Carabao Cup and have a good game against Spurs coming up". Sixteen matches, we've not lost, it's good.

'Our adaptation to them is only 30 per cent and 70 per cent is for us, how we can improve, how we can use positions on the pitch better and our capacity to be positive.

"(Hector) Bellerin I think has had a decent season but where's he been decent?

"But we need time, we need work".

He is making some strides toward solidifying the team, but Arsenal have still only kept two clean sheets in the Premier League and conceded 15 goals in 12 matches - compared to just five goals for leaders Manchester City and Liverpool.

Emery also singled out Alex Iwobi as one player who can still become more of a scoring threat for the club.

"We want to create that kind of atmosphere so it's about both how we finish in the table and also in terms of creating a team both individually and collectively that has motivation".

"Koscielny started to train with us, every day, one month ago".
