Emery: Arsenal Must Recover Confidence At Leicester After Back-To-Back Defeats

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has urged his players to recover their confidence in crucial Premier League against Leicester City on Sunday.

The Gunners were beaten 3-1 at Molineux by Wolves on Wednesday, which compounded their misery after a 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace the previous Sunday.

Emery’s side are now in danger of missing out on a place in the Premier League’s top four, as they currently sit fifth and a point behind Chelsea in the standings.

Arsenal’s away form has been a cause for concern over the course of the 2018-19 campaign and another loss could completely derail their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

Ahead of their trip to Leicester on Sunday, Emery has issued a rallying cry to his underperforming stars, insisting that they have the “spirit” to bounce back from a recent slump.

“The first idea for us is to recover our confidence,” Emery began at a press conference on Friday.

“Each minute, hour, day and week we are working and training for a big performance to take the three points.
“I think it is very important to be together. To help our connection with our supporters, we have to do all we can in training and in the matches.

“Sunday is a good time to show our spirit and our wish to win the three points against Leicester.”

Looking past their clash with the Foxes, the Gunners still have fixtures against Brighton and Burnley to negotiate before they can wrap up their season, with a Europa League semi-final against Valencia wedged in between.
