BREAKING: Emery reveals latest news on Denis Suarez and which type of player Arsenal looking for: Press Conference

Arsenal will look to become the first team to beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Friday in a FA Cup Semi-final. Hector Bellerin is facing an extended period on the sidelines as the result of a knee ligament injury suffered in the win over Chelsea on Saturday. While United are waiting to learn if Marcus Rashford will be fit to start against the Gunners. Ahead of the game, Arsenal boss Unai Emery has spoken to the press. Emery on Manchester United It’s a different team. The same players but they are playing with a big performance now. I was watching the last matches and each player has big confidence. Now they are very dangerous. For us, it is good because it is a very big test. We have won 13 FA Cups, they have won 12. For this competition, it’s the best match we can play. We are looking forward to playing this match in our stadium with our supporters. Emery on Koscielny The last matches I think we are looking at Koscielny with a big performance. After his injury, it is necessary to take confidence again and then physically to be well so he can play with his performance. I think the last two matches his performance was like we want. Emery on transfers The club continues to work on that. It’s difficult, you know, but I am working with our players and I think we need - and we can - sign some players to help after our injuries like Rob Holding, like Welbeck, like Hector Bellerin. But we can play with the players we have now and the same message is to you and every supporter, we only want to sign one or two players who can really help us with good performances. The club is working. They know our intentions, our possibilities for signing players that can help us, but they work and also with communication to us. Emery on Arsenal's move for Denis Suarez I don’t want to speak about each player. I know the club is working with different players. Emery on the type of player Arsenal are looking for The idea is first to find the quality and this quality can help us. We need, if he can come here, a winger for the right or left or some players also at centre back. But now, Dinos Mavropanos is coming back after his injuries and I think I can use him in the next matches. On Mislintat's exit It’s a very short time that I worked with him but I worked well and pleased with him. I think he has big experience in Germany and here, and it’s one issue in the club and the club is working on that. I can only say to you that my experience with him is positive and is good. On whether he had any disputes with Mislintat No. Emery on Monchi and the technical director links Now, I can only say to you that he’s working in Roma. I worked very well with him in Sevilla for three and a half years, and very well too. My relationship with him is good but this work is for the club and the issue is the club’s responsibility. I can say to you only that he is a good person and a good professional. Emery on the clean sheet against Chelsea Yes, it was very important. It’s our challenge in every match. But I think against West Ham we can work better defensively also and we conceded one goal but we still didn’t concede a lot of chances. The last two matches I think we have been better defensively. Emery on Bellerin's injury Hector Bellerin is very mature and I think he received this injury like a football professional can take and he is already preparing to come back stronger than before.
