Arsenal manager Unai Emery, is loving the commitment from his players as they are risking a possible suspension for the match vs Liverpool.

The current Arsenal season under Unai Emery is about to reach a tipping point, they are closing into the most complicated match of the tournament against leaders Liverpool at Anfield Road.

For the Spanish manager, having all his players is very important but he values commitment above everything else when it comes to playing for the points.

There is no use reaching that match against the Reds if they are not going to at least have a chance to get closer to them, they are currently trailing 11 points behind Jürgen Klopp’s side and they will need to win at Brighton & Hove Albion on Boxing Day if they want to at least spice things up a bit at Anfield.

Emery is very excited by the fact that some of his players are willing to risk a suspension for that match on Wednesday, Guendouzi and Torreira are only one yellow card away from missing that game.

“We are going to play the next match in Brighton, and we are going to play full, not considering the option of playing with more precaution,” he said vis Four Four Two.

“It’s the same three points at Brighton as it is at Liverpool, and we are going to play first in Brighton, and it’s a tough match. We need every player with 100 percent focus to do all on the pitch for the win.”

“I am going to enjoy it with you [the media], working and playing the matches, and I think it’s very important for the supporters for this moment to play,” he added.

“To have a party playing with another team, with our supporters, Brighton is perfect, play Wednesday, in Liverpool, perfect, here on January, the new year, against Fulham is perfect. We are going to enjoy and enjoy only if we win!”

“I want every player to be a protagonist on the pitch, with goals, assists, with the best in the game,” he continued.

“Our defect, and [what] we need to keep improving [on], is to have more clean sheets and to concede less chances for the opposition. It’s one work we need to keep doing and do better.”
