Unai Emery Explains Why He Is Angry With Himself And Not the Players

Unai Emery has fumed anger at himself after seeing Arsenal crash to a 3-1 defeat in the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Gunners were below par as they lost a chance to redeem themselves in the fight for Champions League qualification.

Three first-half goals from the hosts sank us, all we could get in the next 45 minutes was a header from Sokratis Papastathopoulos which served as a consolation for the humiliation.

In the aftermath of the match when the Spaniard faced the press, he admitted that it was all his fault because he ought to have devised a means to change the game.

"I usually am very disciplined with myself [but] I am angry with myself," Emery said. "We didn’t do the gameplan like I wanted.

"I am not angry with the players, I am angry with myself. My idea and my style is to look in front and find a solution. Not to find who the player is who is playing worse or why they are not doing all we spoke about before.

"First I find the solution. The solution for me [now] is to think about Sunday and take the possibility on Sunday to come back with our best performance and our best competitive team for the possibility to take the three points.

"When we win, we win together, and when we lose, we lose together. In general, I think we are with the possibility to be in the top four and today we lost having it in our hands. [We need to] continue and I want to tell the players and the supporters to continue and take the opportunity on Sunday."

Manchester United's loss to Manchester City yesterday gives Arsenal slight hopes in the top-four contest.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will lock horns with Chelsea this weekend and we hope they can share points (I hate relying on others' failure to thrive but that's just the only way out for now) while we win away at Leicester City.
