'Goals are very important for the spectacle'

Only Manchester City have scored more goals than us in the Premier League this season - and Unai Emery has underlined his commitment to entertainment.

We have also had six different scorers in the Europa League, more than any other side, and our head coach is pleased with the way we are sharing around the responsibility.

"We want the balance," he said. "The balance to score a lot and not concede a lot of goals, but for me the individual goalscoring statistics for the players is very important, as it is for the supporters to be excited with many things on the pitch. 

"Scoring goals is important for this spectacle and with this balance we want to score a lot with different players.

"I want our strikers to have a lot of chances to score but also to find the balance defensively."

Emery won the Europa League three times in a row during his time with Sevilla, and he stressed the importance of the competition in terms of our list of priorities.

"I developed a lot individually in this competition," he said. "In my career also I look at a lot of teams how they do the commitment, how they can find this other performance in this competition.

"I think this competition for every team is very important because first it is a title to play for and for other teams when you win this competition you go to the Champions League.

"For us at Arsenal I am telling every player, the supporters and the club for me it is very important also because it is one title a way to go to the Champions League next year.

"We are here to play to win, to find all the titles that are in the way and this is one with a very high, high level in every team like Sporting CP and in this competition every year there are a lot of teams with the same idea to find here one title and I think the level now is very, very high in this competition."
