EMERY’S BEEN BITTEN BEFORE BY UNDERDOGS
the last days of Arsenal Wenger. Last season the Gunners were beaten at relegated Stoke and Swansea, held at relegated West Brom, defeated at Watford, Bournemouth and Brighton and held at struggling Southampton.
They scraped a final-day 1-0 win at Huddersfield thanks to a goal by Pierre-emerick Aubameyang.
Emery wants to ensure his side gain another victory over the Terriers today at the Emirates.
He is also determined to maintain the feel-good factor which has returned to the red and white half of north London.
“We have worked for that,” he added. “The fans can be happy with us, can be proud with our work, with our victories, with our draws.
“Every day we need to create this spirit and this feeling.
“On Saturday I want to give the supporters the same energy, to connect with them.
“If we do that, they will respond and bring their spirit and energy to lift us.”
