Arsenal news: Unai Emery refuses to call out players after Sheffield United defeat | Football | Sport

Unai Emery didn’t see much wrong with Arsenal’s performance as they once again struggled away from home.

Before the weekend, Arsenal sat third in the table and in close proximity to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.

Their good start over the opening eight games had largely been down to their home form though, having won three out of four and drawing the other against Tottenham.

In stark contrast though the Gunners have been terrible away from home, including a 2-2 draw to basement club Watford as they squandered a two-goal lead.

They came up against an inspired Sheffield United side, who recently pushed Liverpool close at Bramall Lane as well as picking up a point away at Chelsea.

And Arsenal were unable to find a way past their rigid defence, with Dean Henderson having little to do in goal.

But Emery still felt Arsenal were hard done by not to talk away with at least a point from the match.

“We did not deserve to lose and we conceded a lot of corners in the first half and they scored in one action,” he said on Sky Sports.

“Above all, we have to improve by not allowing balls like that. When we have our opportunities to attack, we created more chances than them but did not score today.

“We deserved more from the game but they have conceded the least goals in the Premier League and it was going to be difficult if they scored first. We tried in the second half, created three good chances to score.

“The scorer was with our goalkeeper and we had three players free to attack the ball. They gave us a key moment – the goal and another one when we should have had a clear penalty on Sokratis.

“Bukayo Saka drives forward but I do not know if it was a penalty. It is a hard action for a yellow card. With VAR, the foul on Sokratis should have been reviewed. it was clear but we have to accept it.

“We did not deserve to lose and we will think about where we can improve. When we were losing 1-0, we controlled the game and defended well but they had a lot of players in their box so it was difficult to achieve attacks.

“We created three or four chances and we spoke about scoring one goal, we could have controlled it better if we did.

“We have challenges in each match. Tonight we had a big challenge to get the three points.

“We are playing some young players who are taking experience but the most important thing is to win. The result is one thing, but we can analyse positively.”
