Arsenal boss Unai Emery wants his defenders to improve and indicated he could strengthen at the back in the January window.
Arsenal travel to Liverpool on the back of a Boxing Day draw at Brighton, a game which again underlined the weaknesses in their defence.
Emery has now been at the helm for half a season and wants to improve his team at the back, although a spate of injured defenders is not helping his cause.

“We need more, but we need more from everybody and we need more also in our demanding ideas and we need to continue working on things,” he added.
“Mistakes are not only one player or two players or three players, but maybe also in the ideas. But at the moment, in the first half of the season, we are happy with 38 points. We need more. But it’s not bad, these points on the table.
“We need to improve defensively because we are scoring a lot of goals and before yesterday we were second in the table for scoring. But we need to get better in the defensive moments and concede less goals and less chances for the opposition.
“Also, in the last matches, we are having a lot of injuries in the defensive positions.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
