Arsenal boss Unai Emery sets team two big targets

Arsenal lacked belief under Arsene Wenger but will have "a great season" under new manager Unai Emery, says former midfielder Santi Cazorla.

The Greece worldwide limped off the pitch after a knock to his knee and was replaced by Rob Holding before goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed a 2-0 win for the Gunners.

Substitute Cenk Tosun forced a late save out of Cech as Everton looked to set up an enthralling finish, but Arsenal held on to continue their winning ways and pick up a first clean sheet under Emery in the process.

A combination of poor finishing and inspired form from Cech meant, however, that the match was goalless as the game approached the hour mark and Unai Emery's superior attack proved to be the difference as Alexandre Lacazette broke the deadlock.

Emery made eight changes for the Europa League clash as he rested his key players for Everton's visit to the Emirates Stadium. Henrikh Mkhitaryan seems the best suited to that position, although he drifts into his preferred inside-right role, and while Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey have both played there, they are traditional "No.10s" and more successful playing through the middle.

"Petr Cech was the best player on the pitch, clearly. We need to improve this".

The Greek global had played in every minute of every game in all competitions this campaign heading in to the Everton match and he was once again selected to start alongside Shkodran Mustafi in the middle of defence by Emery today. The doctors will wait until tomorrow, but I hope it's not important. I train very hard and maybe it needs a little bit of time.

"I believe that they will do that and for sure they will keep on improving in the future". I am then going to choose the best first 11.

Walcott has since revealed that he grew disenchanted with the game as his time at Arsenal came to an end, and for someone who has already contributed two goals and an assist to Marco Silva's side this season, the England man will this weekend be looking to exact some revenge on his old club for letting him go.

'I gave him all the information I could to try and help him out during his period of settling in and I think he's very happy and I think he's a great manager for Arsenal.

Everton will be boosted by the return of Brazil forward Richarlison after he completed a three-game ban.
