Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford says Unai Emery has transformed Arsenal into ‘one of the strongest teams’ in the Premier League. The Gunners beat north London rivals Tottenham on Sunday to extend their unbeaten run under Emery to 19 games.
The impressive 4-2 victory also saw Arsenal climb into the top-four. Arsenal will hope to maintain their form against Jose Mourinho’s United on Wednesday
It’s almost a different Arsenal side now,’ Rashford said. ‘They’re playing better football ‘They’re a more aggressive team and looking at them now they’re one of the strongest teams in the league.
‘We have to take all that into account and no matter what happens we have to try to get the three points.’ While Arsenal are flying under new manager Emery, Manchester United have endured a shocking run to slip to seventh in the top-flight.
The Red Devils failed to beat Southampton on Saturday, a week after drawing at home to struggling Crystal Palace. ‘It was disappointing and we paid the price for not starting how we should have started,’ Rashford added. ‘We grew into the game, especially in the first half when we were creating chances and starting to play better football, but we can’t expect to start games in the way we did that one and get three points.
We have to do better. ‘I’m still growing so naturally it’s improving. I’m not having to do lots of extra-hard work off the pitch or in the gym. I do little bits and those little bits of natural growth mean that’s going well.’
