We're 'on our way' to top-four target: Emery

Emery and Merson

"We are here with the players who I think are okay to play", the Gunners head coach told a news conference.

Emery's side now have a two-week break from the Premier League as they take on BATE Borisov in the Europa League, but return to domestic action on February 24 when they host Southampton.

"Today this victory can give us confidence, the possibility to continue with our target in the Premier League".

"Winning the Europa League is a great memory for everyone involved and secondly it can book you a place in the Champions League, so you can see there is a lot to play for". "We prepare every day for every competition and this is what we are aiming for".

"This season, we don't have a clean sheet away?" asked the goalkeeper when the stat was mentioned by a reporter. "We are the favourites for the tie but you have to do it on the pitch, be focused home and away, if you want to progress", he said.

Furthermore, Ozil has recently recovered from illness - as has Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - and could both feature in the starting lineup in Belarus, with Suarez also bound to get a first start in an Arsenal shirt after his loan arrival from Barcelona in January.

To be fair Arsenal were decimated by injuries and a reported mini-virus so Emery's choices were limited, but we still managed to start with a strong starting XI.

He opted to miss the UEFA Under-19 Championships in Sweden to go on the pre-season tour to Singapore and he established himself in the first team by the start of the Premier League season.

"We wait for the other teams and if they make mistakes. This year, when they played in the groups, against Chelsea, they lost 1-0 but had chances to score and draw", he said.

Arsenal have had a mixed season but right now the biggest problem they have is in defence.

Alex Iwobi has been one of the most divisive players at Arsenal ever since his debut.
