Arsenal boss admits Leicester star poses a big threat

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he is well aware of the threat Jamie Vardy will pose when the Gunners face Leicester on Monday.

Emery’s side are in fantastic form, having won nine matches in a row, and have been superb going forward.

But Emery says they will need to defend solidly against the threat of England international Vardy.

“He’s a very good player. I think his talent and speed is for us to control on Monday,” Emery said.

“We will want on Monday not to give him the possibility to continue to score against us.”

A 10th win in a row would increase excitement among Arsenal fans, who have certainly been enjoying life under Emery.

However, the Spaniard has insisted that Arsenal still have plenty room for improvement.

“I am not agreeing totally with the response of the supporters,” he said.

“I think we need to improve a lot. I think we have to continue doing a lot of the things to get better.

“Our demands need to be very high. The supporters can enjoy it with us but also we’re speaking with our reality every day.

“We need to improve because for example the match against Fulham was a very good result and a very good game for 90 minutes. But in the first 45 minutes I thought we needed to do better.”
