Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has explained why his side lost to Manchester City in their Premier League opener on Sunday evening.
Goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva in either half of the match ensured that City defeated the Gunners 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.
Emery believes his players tried against City, adding that they needed to improve as a team and also individually.
“I am happy with the players,” Emery was quoted saying by Londonfootballnews at a post-match conference.
“The team, for 90 minutes, they ran, they tried, they pushed, but we need to improve all collective and individual aspects.
“We have to continue working tactically and defensively, and also making shorter the difference between Manchester City and us.”
Emery’s side will face Chelsea in their next EPL game on Saturday.
