Having won six games on the spin, Unai Emery is confident his team are making progress - but he says there is much more to come from them.
We face an in-form Watford at Emirates Stadium on Saturday hoping to maintain our upward trajectory, and this is what our head coach said ahead of the game:
- Emery - Gracia is competitive and always improving
on whether we're in a better position now than he expected we would be...
I work with my mentality to look forward to being better in each moment and after each match. Now, the table is also, I think, giving us the moment they are doing at the moment. Our performances are also, after the first two against Manchester City and against Chelsea, getting better. But our challenge is, tomorrow we are on the good way but also when there are a lot of matches and difficult matches, to be more prepared for the possibility to win. Like tomorrow, against Watford. I think the Premier League is the most important competition for us because it is giving us the best performance in 38 matches and I think the regularity is giving us our best performance.
on if he feels confidence is building in the squad...
Each match gives us the opportunity to take more confidence. We are winning, I think the confidence is the best on our individual players and also on our collective work. But every match is one challenge to show and to give, to find our best moment and best performance. Each player is thinking well, but also we need more.
