Press conference

Emery - We know we need to improve our away form

Unai Emery accepts that we need to improve our away form - and that we have a big opportunity to start that process at Huddersfield Town this weekend.

The Terriers have lost their last six matches at home in the Premier League, and have only scored five league goals at the John Smith's Stadium this season.

But while Emery expects his side to produce the performance required to win, he knows it won't be easy against opponents fighting for survival.

"These matches are difficult and they are playing for the possibility to continue in the Premier League," he said. "Their last results have not been good but with their new coach, I am sure that they are going to play with a big ambition and a big performance on Saturday. 

"I think they have good players with a good organisation. They push a lot and I know it will be difficult. For us as well, away games have been a challenge and each match is a new challenge.

"Each match is also a very big opportunity for us to fight for the possibility to take three points and continue in our way better than how we are doing in away games now.

"I think [Huddersfield] are going to do high pressing and they are going to build up with good organisation to break our lines. It’s not about thinking that they’re going to be deep defensively because they’re organised. I think they are going to push and they are going to do a lot of duels on the pitch against us.

"We are working on that and we also need to improve on our away form, how we can do better playing against teams who press high against us."
