Unai Emery urges Arsenal to improve away form amid criticism

"There's a big difference between the top three [Liverpool, Manchester City, and Tottenham] and us but we are a lot closer to Chelsea and Manchester United".

Now, Unai Emery's men must regroup from that and look to win games.

It is up to Emery whether to play his highest paid player or not but when you drop a player like Ozil you have to perform, otherwise what is the point?

Asked what the problem is behind Arsenal's away form on MailOnline, former club captain Keown retorted: "Is it any wonder Arsenal have lost four of their last five away games when Unai Emery has gone with a different formation in each match?"

Emery's Arsenal are sixth in the standings ahead of their trip to bottom side Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Emery's team sit sixth - a point behind Manchester United and three behind Chelsea - but the Spaniard concedes it will be hard to guarantee Champions League football next season.

Fireworks, Dancing and Prayers Ring in the Year of the Pig
Another part of the festivities is "hongbao" or red envelopes containing money, which are given to family and friends. Dragon dancing, a tradition of the Han people, is performed at many Chinese festivals to scare away evil spirits.

Arsenal have won their opening three games against Huddersfield in the Premier League. "I work over the criticism of me because I know that work in the present can change our way".

Hence, a chance to finish in the top four is not out of sight for the North London side. We are strong at home but we need to do better away.

"One month ago we were in the same situation but it's not easy. For us as well, away games have been a challenge and each match is a new challenge". The Gunners, like last season, have endured a hard time away from home, winning their last game outside of the Emirates on November 25th.

"It's not to think we're playing under pressure, it's to be demanding and also with ambition to be in the top four".

Emery also added that loan signing Denis Suarez, who joined from Barcelona in the transfer window, has been improving in training as the Spanish midfielder continues to adapt to his new club. "But already from the first day with us, he was already with good performance, but this week he worked Monday with our coaches and also yesterday".
