  • Arsenal forward Pierre Emerick Aubameyang isn't comfortable out wide says Shola Ameobi

"There's a big difference between the top three [Liverpool, Manchester City, and Tottenham] and us but we are a lot closer to Chelsea and Manchester United".

Denis Suarez came on as a substitute against Man City but the new arrival should make his first team start during the Huddersfield vs Arsenal game.

His inconsistent performances and struggles with fitness this term are understood to have convinced Emery that letting him go in the next transfer window is the best option, though the Gunners will likely have to accept a reduced fee for the German global.

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.

Under Unai Emery, Arsenal now sit sixth, having been overtaken by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United side, who sit a point ahead, while Chelsea are fourth and three points clear of the Gunners.

Seven of Alexandre Lacazette's nine Premier League goals for Arsenal this season have been winning goals - only Mo Salah (8) has scored more winners in the competition this season.

76ers trade Landry Shamet to Clippers
The Clippers are 30-25 and have shed the salary needed to make them attractive for major free agents in the summer. Harris, 26, leads the Clippers in scoring at 20.9 points per game and rebounding at 7.9 boards per game.

According to the Macclesfield Town manager, Arsenal boss Unai Emery needs at least two to three transfer windows to turn things around at the club. "I work over the criticism of me because I know that work in the present can change our way". "Are we outsiders now for a top-four finish?"

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

"One month ago we were in the same situation but it's not easy".

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

The Gunners have won four games on the road so far since the Spaniard took charge last summer and have struggled away from the Emirates Stadium for some time. We are strong at home but we need to do better away. "For us as well, away games have been a challenge and each match is a new challenge". "Also knowing other teams, they have an advantage to us".
