Holding admits Arsenal defence more organised under Emery

In terms of team news from both camps, the Gunners are lucky to have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette back fit after the duo withdrew from their respective global games.

The Spanish coach has been charged with guiding Arsenal back into the Champions League qualification spots after they finished in sixth place and without a trophy last term under Arsene Wenger. "The process with him in this global break is to finish training with us every day to start playing, little by little".

Callum Wilson has scored in all three of his Premier League appearances against Arsenal, and Eddie Howe will be hoping he makes it four from four.

The north Londoners haven't qualified for Europe's premier club competition for the last two seasons.

Emery also said the players had a long way to go, despite the good start, and any information Wenger had given him wasn't used, adding, "I met once with him, and little else".

'What I want is to unite both essences and be more competitive.

"But we need also to arrive with the ball in the opposition box with the right balance for recovery for when we lose the ball. I am knowing every day, the competition better". We are improving things. "I think they've found it, because Emery is a victor". I want to be demanding of myself, the team and the club.

According to Emery, the Gunners will tackle the hosts at a very high level in order to get the three points.

"Money has changed everything".

Weirdly, this match could be one of the toughest of their season, despite already playing Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool. "And Arsenal must be great, not allowing the four above to take advantage of us and not allow the teams below to get closer to us".

Bernd Leno will continue in goal, especially after his heroic performance against Wolves, meaning Petr Cech should be on the bench once again.
