Unai Emery has warned Chelsea FC that he is to set up his Arsenal team to beat the Blues in Saturday’s crunch clash at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal slumped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat by Manchester City in their first game under new manager Unai Emery on Sunday afternoon as the Premier League champions made a winning start to their title defence.

Emery has been getting to grips with life at Arsenal after having been appointed as the north London club’s new manager following Arsene Wenger’s exit back in May.

He now has a full week to prepare his team for their crunch trip to Chelsea FC on Saturday evening as he looks to claim his first Premier League points as Arsenal boss.

Chelsea FC began their reign under new manager Maurizio Sarri on Saturday with a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

And Emery has now warned Chelsea FC that he will set up his side to claim all three points at Stamford Bridge next weekend.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Sunday, Emery said: “Each match is different. We want to prepare for each match with the difficulty and demands of the opposition.

“But today, I think the team in more time, we are playing with this personality and we need to improve this personality with better performances on the pitch.

“In the next week we are continuing this work and against Chelsea we are going to analyse the opposition.

“We are going there to win, with this intention against Chelsea.”

Emery has been tasked with steering Arsenal back into the top four this season after the north London side finished in sixth place and without a trophy last term.
