Premier League table: Liverpool remain on course as Arsenal drop valuable points

We have to improve and look towards the next game.

The team have won 10 Premier League matches in a row at the Emirates and have lost just once there all season in the league.

"We're defending badly at the moment, even when it was 11 against 10, and that means we can not control the game", said Ancelotti.

"The performances are helping us also".

Unai Emery was in defiant mood after Arsenal's 1-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday, claiming that the Gunners are more than capable of finishing the season in the top four of the Premier League.

"This was a very good opportunity to take the three points and go third but after the result we are fourth and we need to be consistent". "That's the main reason he didn't start those two matches". They fell at the semi final stage in 2014-15, but won the competition in 1988-89 with a side featuring Diego Maradona.

But ahead of Thursday night's Europa League quarter-final first-leg against Napoli at the Emirates, Emery has launched a staunch defence of his players and says he will do all he can to protect them during the final weeks of the season.

Arsenal have been beaten just once in their last 17 home games in the UEFA Cup/Europa League (W12 D4) - losing 1-2 to Ostersunds FK in the last 32 in 2017-18.

And with four of their remaining six matches on the road - against Watford, Wolves, Leicester and Burnley - that is likely to determine whether or not they finish in the top four, a position they could lose to Chelsea on Monday evening. They had a draw at home at the weekend and are second in Serie A, but are not as strong as they used to be.

"Tactically they are a very organised team, they have the possibility to play with combinations and transition very quickly".
