Arsenal manager Unai Emery says he will not underestimate West Ham ahead of this weekend’s London Derby, despite the Hammers’ poor start to the season.
West Ham are 19th in the table after two games, having suffered back-to-back defeats to both Liverpool and Bournemouth.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side were thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool on the opening day, and were pegged back from 1-0 up on Saturday by Eddie Howe’s side to lose 2-1.
Arsenal however have endured an equally tough start to the new campaign with consecutive defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea, and Emery says he will take nothing for granted ahead of this Saturday’s clash at The Emirates.
“Yes the demand is very high,” said the Spaniard when asked about the pressure already on his side after two defeats in two.
“We are going to prepare for [West Ham] like we did for Manchester City and like we did for Chelsea. And we will continue to improve on things for next week.
“Our performances are getting better. We will continue our process with the players, with our young players, also work on our system so that we do better on the pitch.”
