Ahead of Arsenal’s match against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, the club’s manager, Unai Emery has noted that the club’s new signings, David Luiz, Nicolas Pepe, Dani Ceballos and Gabriel Martinelli are in contention to feature in the clash.
The North London side will play Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at Emirates Stadium. The Gunners head to the game following their 1-0 victory over Newcastle United last weekend.
When asked if the club’s new signings are ready to play against Burnley, Emery stated while speaking with Metro UK, “Each player is different. After Newcastle and this week, the players are working well.”
“We can decide to choose different options in each position. Really I think we need to be competitive.”
“We need different options to decide who is better each match is. If I have some doubt, it’s good, because it’s positive and after we are going to decide, it depends on training tomorrow.”
“But the new players, the players who were with us last year, the young players, we can achieve our way each match with confidence in them.”
He further stated, “I am going to decide tomorrow because now is a small difference for my decision about the player.”
“It depends on how they will be tomorrow in the training. But Pepe is training with us, is improving with us, is knowing us.”
“He’s understanding our style little by little, understanding better with his teammates and physically also getting better. He is more close to help us at the beginning [of the match], or giving impact during the match.”
