But Arsenal's FA Cup elimination means they can enjoy a free weekend before completing the tie in London, with February then ending with winnable home games in the league against Southampton and Bournemouth. "Are we outsiders now for a top-four finish?"
Another defeat to Manchester City last week saw Arsenal slump to sixth place in the Premier League table, with Manchester United and Chelsea now in pole position to reach the top four at their expense. Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, all won their respective matches, making the title race and the race for the Top 4 even more interesting.
"The squad is focused on qualifying for the Champions League because a big club like Arsenal deserves to be playing in that competition".
Arsenal now sit sixth in the league, three points off fourth-placed Chelsea, and next travel to Huddersfield on Saturday.
"The first impression from him is very good and we saw this from the first weeks of pre-season when he arrived here", Emery said.
"It is so far", Emery said, when asked whether the Premier League's top three were out of reach. Today he is working with different adaptation and better than last week. We are going to play Tottenham in one month but now we need to think first about the next games, the next teams'.
"Then it's how we are doing away, at home". Arsenal will qualify for the Champions League if they win the Europa League; they face Bate Borisov in the last 32, with the first leg on Thursday in Belarus.
"We started very well away, changing also our mentality to get more points away, but now we need to recover this confidence and the next opportunity is against Huddersfield". "But already from the first day with us, he was already with good performance, but this week he worked Monday with our coaches and also yesterday".
