Emery says Denis Suarez is ready to start for Arsenal after six substitute appearances.

The midfielder, who is on loan from Barcelona, has had to get used to the bench since arriving at the club in January.

Arsenal face Newcastle on Monday and Emery is considering whether to hand the Spaniard his first start in a Gunners shirt.

‘He is OK for starting in the first XI, to give us this impact,’ Emery said. 

‘I think now our focus is collectively a very strong focus to help, in 90 minutes, 30 minutes or one minute.

‘We are going to need everybody, every player for the next matches.’

Asked whether it had taken Suarez time to settle, Emery said: ‘I think it’s normal. Now we have a lot of players ready, with a big mentality with a big performance to play and help us.

‘For me like that, we can be stronger, more competitive for taking the big performance, with Denis or with another player.’

‘It’s strange for a big team’: West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini expects to face Arsenal side hungry to win as Freddie Ljungberg aims to end winless streak

  • West Ham will host Arsenal on Monday night in a Premier League clash 
  • Arsenal are on a miserable run, having gone nine games without a win 
  • West Ham’s form is no better, with Pellegrini’s job at risk in East London 
  • The former Man City boss called Arsenal’s situation ‘strange for a big team’ 

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini will not be taking Arsenal lightly despite their woeful form.

The Gunners head to east London on Monday night on the back of a nine-match winless streak, their worst run in 42 years.

Arsenal would appear to be there for the taking as the Hammers go in search of only their second win in 10 in the league.

But Pellegrini is anticipating a backlash and warned: ‘I expect to see a team that will try to reverse their results.

‘They have a lot of top players so we cannot be confident that, just because they are not in a good moment, we are going to win the game. We must try to win the game by having a good performance.

‘The advantage we will take is if we play a good game, if we are solid in defence and creative in attack. That’s what the result depends on.

‘It’s strange for a big team (that in) the last 20 years normally play in the Champions League, but football is like that. From one game to another the results change.

‘Is it a good time to play them? The time for our team depends more on our performance than what is happening with the other team.’

Freddie Ljungberg will be in the opposition dugout as Arsenal’s search for a permanent new manager goes on.

Pellegrini admits the Swede, a former Gunners and Hammers midfielder, has a tough task on his hands.

‘Of course for him it is a big challenge in a bad moment for Arsenal,’ added Pellegrini.

‘He is a young manager just starting his career and he will do it the best he can do it. It is not easy but he knows that club well.’

Pellegrini has problems of his own, with West Ham edging perilously close to the drop zone, but as usual he rejected any suggestions that he is battling to save his job.

‘As I always say, the pressure doesn’t link with the results,’ he said. ‘The pressure for me is in every game, to do it better, play well and win the game.

‘You do not need to be in a bad position, without a win in so many games, to start to feel the pressure. Pressure is there always.’

Arsenal stance on Massimiliano Allegri could change due to former Juventus boss' comments

Published

Arsenal may no longer consider Massimiliano Allegri to be their next manager because the former Juventus boss is not keen on returning to work before the summer. According to Goal, Allegri is high on the Gunners’ shortlist but his insistence of extending his sabbatical may not work for the north Londoners.

The Italian was interviewed for the job in 2018 before Unai Emery’s appointment and remains interested in the position.

But the successful manager has taken some time off ever since leaving Juve last summer and is very happy with the way things are.

When asked when he will come back to action, Allegri said: “In June. I don’t know if you can call it a sabbatical or not.

“Giovanni [Branchini] and I immediately came to that decision.

“As soon as the relationship with Juventus came to an end, the decision was to take a year out.

“I had 18 years as a player and I’ve been in coaching for 16. I stopped this year after 34.

“I’m happy. I have a chance to reflect, go and talk to people, do things in my private life that I’m passionate about, like going to the theatre, some art exhibitions, reading books.”
