Arsenal coach Unai Emery has said his players need to “improve a lot” as they face Leicester City in the Premier League, weekend.

The Gunners have been on an eight-game winning streak in all competition after a slow start to the season that saw them lose to Manchester City and Chelsea.

However, Emery has called on his players to show more determination as they battle for a better finish in the league this term.

“I am not agreeing totally with the response of the supporters. I think we need to improve a lot,” Emery said on Thursday.

“I think we have to continue doing a lot of the things to get better. Our demands need to be very high.

“The supporters can enjoy it with us, but also we’re speaking with our reality every day.

“I am not agreeing totally with the response of the supporters. I think we need to improve a lot.

“I think we have to continue doing a lot of the things to get better. Our demands need to be very careful.

“We need to improve because, for example, the match against Fulham was a very good result and a very good game for 90 minutes. But in the first 45 minutes, I thought we needed to do better.

“If we are remembering the last match at the Emirates [against Watford ], we won but not playing like we want, with the control against the opposition.

“For me now, the most important thing is not to rush. The next game against Leicester is very big, very difficult.”

He admitted that “Leicester are a very good team and play with a clear identity under Claude Puel. They are very competitive, have very good players and we need every single player, and our mentality together to be stronger than in the last match.”
