Emery applauds Iwobi attitude but wants further improvement Alex Iwobi caught the eye of Arsenal coach Unai Emery on Saturday, though the Spaniard thinks he can still improve tactically.

Unai Emery was impressed with Alex Iwobi's performance in Saturday's 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town, but he still thinks the Nigerian has room for improvement.

Iwobi scored the opening goal at the John Smith's Stadium, his volley deflecting in off Terence Kongolo following a left-wing cross from Sead Kolasinac.

It was his third Premier League goal of the season, matching his total for last term despite making seven fewer starts.

The 22-year-old looked particularly bright at the start of the campaign and appeared to have adapted well to Emery's system following the departure of Arsene Wenger.

Unai Emery: Saturday is 'must win'

Unai Emery: Saturday is 'must win' Arsenal head coach Unai Emery says his side need to approach Saturday's trip to Huddersfield with a 'must-win' mentality. The Gunners are seeking to end a run of six away league games without a win and a trip to bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield is an obvious opportunity to earn three points away from the Emirates. 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. Asked if Huddersfield's own poor form meant this game was must-win, Emery replied: "Yes.

His form had tailed off before Saturday's victory, but Emery knows where Iwobi can improve and believes the attacker has the right attitude.

"He's young, makes a big commitment and he has a good physical condition," Emery said post-match.

"He needs to improve something tactically, maybe, but above all he's calm with the ball in the attacking third [in order] to find better assists, finding the possibility to score with composure, or find the best option, whether that is shooting or dribbling.

"He scored [on Saturday], got another very good chance and the possibility to assist [Alexandre] Lacazette, but I think his match – first starting with his attitude – was very big, and his performance was very good."

Arsenal have lost three of their last seven games in the Premier League, with Liverpool, West Ham and Manchester City all defeating them.

As such, questions have been raised over Emery's tactics and the team's adaptation to them, but the coach insists it is a process that does not have a specific end point.

"Each training, each match is a big a challenge," Emery added. "You can win, lose, draw, but the most important thing is going ahead thinking about creating – little by little – an identity, collective spirit, team feeling.

"This is one process. It's not finishing or starting now. It's a process, we can improve a lot."

'Today he showed what he wants': Unai Emery praises returning Mesut Ozil after Europa League win against Malmo but refuses to guarantee him a regular starting place for Arsenal.
Mesut Ozil returned to the Arsenal side as they secured safe passage into the last 16 of the Europa League - but head coach Unai Emery insists he is not certain of a regular place in his team. The Gunners went into the second leg against BATE Borisov needing to complete a comeback following a surprise 1-0 defeat in Belarus last week. They responded well and won 3-0 courtesy of a Zakhar Volkov own goal and headers from defensive duo Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
