Greek defender starts: 2 changes Arsenal must make to defeat Huddersfield

Chelsea and Manchester United, two very big teams, also have a difference [to the top three] but they are closer than us.

Sergio Aguero's hattrick gave Man City their three points in a game most people expected Arsenal to suffer a defeat.

It is up to Emery whether to play his highest paid player or not but when you drop a player like Ozil you have to perform, otherwise what is the point?

Another defeat to Manchester City last week saw Arsenal slump to sixth place in the Premier League table, with Manchester United and Chelsea now in pole position to reach the top four at their expense.

Ahead of their trip to bottom club Huddersfield on Saturday (3pm), the manager spoke on the two midfielders.

Emery's team sit sixth - a point behind Manchester United and three behind Chelsea - but the Spaniard concedes it will be hard to guarantee Champions League football next season.

"It is so far", Emery said, when asked whether the Premier League's top three were out of reach.

The loss at City saw Arsenal outplayed for much of the contest, with some supporters taking to social media to criticise the team - as well as Emery's tactics. We are strong at home but we need to do better away.

"This week he worked Monday alone here with our coaches and he's working with a different adaptation, better than last week".

"We have the possibility and the opportunity to get into the top four, but we know it's not easy".

"One month ago we were in the same situation".

"I hope he's continuing to improve every day".

With Suarez coming off the bench in that game, he will be desperately pushing to start against Huddersfield. Then I hope he can show in the next matches how he can help us better than in the first match against Manchester City.

A 2-1 win at Bournemouth on November 25 was the last time Emery's side took three points on the road - and he wants that to be addressed at struggling Huddersfield. "Also knowing other teams, they have an advantage to us".
