Arsenal manager Emery: I'm taking senior players to Blackpool

Arsenal manager Emery: I'm taking senior players to Blackpool

Unai Emery insists his Arsenal side will show respect to Blackpool as he looks to avoid a "dark day" when he takes charge of his first FA Cup tie on Saturday.

The FA Cup will be taken more seriously, as it remains a premier opportunity to take home silverware in Unai Emery's first season with the club, but especially in these early matches, we will nearly certainly continue to see young players given their chance to prove their merits.

Blackpool came to the Emirates in the Carabao Cup in October, with Arsenal running out 2-1 winners. But previous year they lost against Nottingham Forest.

Juventus wanted to bring the deal forward to the winter window but Arsenal preferred to keep him until the end of the campaign.

"He needs to think about his future but for now I want him here".




The Welshman is in the past year of his contract and the Gunners have offered him a new deal which he failed to accept.

"They aren't in the best moment for that. He is a strong player and could do very well".

Midfield: Lucas Torreira was named on the bench at the weekend but he played the second half against Fulham and he still looks like he could do with a rest so I'd be surprised if we saw him feature this weekend. Arsenal is the team that has won this competition 13 times, more than anyone else.

"It's a title and it's a possibility for us to do something important", he said. We are going to start that at Blackpool. Therefore, we should see Stephan Lichtsteiner return at right-back while Carl Jenkinson could get another run out having played in the Europa League at times this season.
