Arsenal boss Emery admits Saka and Pepe both in his plans

Arsenal boss Unai Emery admits he's trying to bring through more young players - despite a battling season.

Emery has confirmed Bukayo Saka is now in his first team thoughts.

He explained, "We know we are taking one responsibility with the young players, but the young players need one process to achieve that responsibility and their performance in the team, but we are helping them. For example, it's very good news for me about how we are improving Bukayo Saka, but he needs to play, play and play to take more confidence and experience to achieve his future we think he has.

"Then with other players it's the same. Pepe is coming, but with Pepe it's also an adaptation that he's doing little-by-little better, but also he needs more because it's not easy for him and it's not easy for a new player like Ceballos to achieve the best performance.

"We are in that process and also I know we need to play better and achieve better results."
