Unai Emery confident of top four chances

Unai Emery was not so happy with the performance over the 90 minutes, but still praised the players after the game.

Insisting that a top-four finish was a realistic target, the Spaniard said: "I think it's hard, but we can (finish in the top four)". We try to win every game and progress step by step and as a club it is important for us to try to go as far as possible. We have to work on this because the defence for me is the most important thing to enable us to get back into the top four.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also missed last weekend's victory over the Terriers, however he has been included in the squad. "We prepare every day for every competition and this is what we are aiming for".

Arsenal have more than one way of qualifying for the top four, the Premier League as well as winning the UEFA Europa League.

If the truth be told, the game wasn't actually that comfortable as Huddersfield played some nice football while we laboured towards all three points.

"Saturday is a very big opportunity for us", said Emery, who wants a repeat of the form Gunners showed in beating Spurs 4-2 at the Emirates in December and Chelsea 2-0 last month.

Mohamed Elneny is pushing for a recall and he's featured heavily for Arsenal in the Europa League this season but Emery is expected to name a very strong line-up so the Egyptian may have to make-do with a place on the bench.

"We wait for the other teams and if they make mistakes". But Emery insists his side remain on track for a top-four finish and a return to the Champions League.

Aaron Ramsey was not used in his best position at Arsenal and can offer Juventus something different when he joins them next season, according to the Italian club.

A Nigerian professional footballer, Alex Iwobi, who plays as a forward for Arsenal, contributed to the sinking of Huddersfield in Saturday's encounter.
