Arsenal coach Unai Emery: Stan Kroenke takeover of club is 'positive'


Representatives of Ladbrokes Alex Apati said: "Welbeck could well have played his last game for Arsenal and the latest betting suggests it's Southampton who'll seal a deal for the England forward".

"When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare this match".

It's an exciting time to be an Arsenal fan, and despite missing out on Champions League football for a second consecutive season, there's much to look forward to in the coming campaign.

"Today, we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities to bring more players".

However, despite reported interest from Valencia, Emery is unwilling to sell the England worldwide, revealing that only Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell are available to leave the Emirates.

Manchester City should win this match.

"Above all, it's about confidence in ourselves to play the best match on Sunday".

Unai Emery confirmed that aside from those three, all other players will be staying at the Emirates Stadium. For a good part, Welbeck has played on either side of attack but through the middle, Emery now prefers other players there.

"Also, I think that Guardiola's coaching is clear in this team". He makes it hard for teams to play against them and will play 4-2-3-1.

Stan Kroenke controversially increased his ownership stake in the club this week and, while it was not a wholly popular move with supporters, Emery is pleased the Kroenke Sports & Entertainment chief is committed to Arsenal.

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust described the move as a "dreadful day" for the club, but Emery is more optimistic.

Arsenal are also without long-term casualty Laurent Koscielny, while England worldwide Danny Welbeck also misses out.
