Emery tells struggling start to embrace Arsenal pressure

French forward Pepe scored his first goal for the club in last month's win over Aston Villa, a second-half penalty at Emirates Stadium, but failed to impress in the drab 1-1 draw at Manchester United.

"My confidence must come back". I am not very anxious. People may be anxious about statistics, but I'm not.

Pepe said that he has been finding it hard to adapt to a new surrounding and a new league since joining Arsenal from French Ligue 1 outfit Lille in a club-record deal in the summer.

Pepe could maybe maybe also very neatly be given more first-crew circulation in Thursday's Europa League meeting with Customary Liege as Emery appears to be like to be to acquire his self belief ahead of Sunday's meeting with Bournemouth.

He said: "Pepe is an unbelievable player".

'The gamers are right here as a result of they need to be and they're privileged to be right here.

"When they are here working and playing, it's not relevant to speak about the money", said Arsenal's head coach.

"Not for him, not for another, young player or experienced players". The salaries are not important for me. They are players, they are human and they play not thinking about that. "I think that I haven't performed well enough yet".

The Spaniard insists there is no concern that the fee Arsenal paid for Pepe is weighing him down, having seen him score just one goal so far.

"For us, it's not thinking about pressure or no pressure".

'We're enjoying each time, as a coach or a participant, below strain. Under pressure is a positive. We should be very demanding of ourselves, however it's optimistic. Every player is in the selection to be here and it's a privilege to be here. "That privilege is [being] under pressure, of course".

'Not for the salary, not for how much the club paid for him. No, no, no. It's because we need to achieve a good performance, individually and collectively.

It was a performance that saw Pepe heavily criticised, with the 24-year-old admitting after the game that he was suffering from a lack of confidence.
