David Seaman says Arsenal are still not Unai Emery's team

The victory over Everton also implies that Arsenal are now placed 6th and are even-Stevens on points with Spurs, who are only ahead on goal difference.

Wenger was synonymous with a purity of style but he came to be accused of giving his players an easy ride.

"Leno is calm. He knows now he is working well".

Everton had the better of the first half at Emirates Stadium, with Richarlison - back after a three-match domestic ban for headbutting an opponent - proving risky down the left wing and forcing a good parried save out of Cech.

"But now, they are very competitive for the position, and Petr Cech for us is also very important". The longer it goes on, the harder it becomes. "We have very healthy competition and we are actually taking the benefit of it".

However, there is still a lot of work to be done to excel further in the coming games and Emery has reiterated the same.

"For any club who wins titles in the recent years, you have a team with the know-how how to finish it off - and you can see it in any sport", he said.


"I take Tiger Woods".

"This club hasn't won the league for over 10 years so obviously you need to get back to knowing how to do it", Cech added.

"It was a great win against Everton because having lost our first two games of the season we needed to bounce back, and now we have four wins in a row - two away, two at home - and we are in a much better place".

Toward the end of the game, Cech drew a gasp, then a roar of approval, from Arsenal fans when he lofted a deft pass over Everton forward Richarlison and picked out right back Hector Bellerin. "We are very happy with the goalkeepers". "He has a big experience, he has big quality".

"We were preparing in pre-season with the young players and every player to give them a chance to show us their confidence and performance", Emery said.

Wenger traditionally used the League Cup as a chance to blood his youngsters, and outgoing club chief executive Ivan Gazidis said when Emery was hired in May that he expected the new manager to have a similar focus on developing academy talents.
