Emery Makes Case To Strengthen Defence

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery says his main goal for 2019 is to improve a Gunners defence that continues to look shaky. After a chastening defeat to Liverpool over the weekend, Arsenal recovered with a 4-1 victory over their struggling London rivals Fulham on New Year’s day.

Granit Xhaka opened the scoring for Emery ‘s  side with Alexandre Lacazette doubling the advantage before Fulham substitute Aboubakar Kamara reduced the arrears.

Any threat of a surprise comeback from Claudio Ranieiri’s side was ended when Aaron Ramsey turned home moments after coming off the bench, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang adding the gloss late on.

Despite the impressive scoreline, Arsenal were again caught out at the back and could easily have been two goals behind were it not for errant finishing from Ryan Sessegnon. “Our challenge now is to improve defensively,” Emery said. “We are very happy with the attacking players and scoring a lot of goals like today. We are high team in terms of scoring. “We need defence also to take more balance and improve. We need to work. We need to prepare for the second half of the season. “We need to do better in the second half of the season, tactically and we are going to do that.” Emery concluded.
