Emery wary of burnout concerns for Arsenal players

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is wary of burnout concerns for his players.

He has admitted he has reduced the workload of some of his players to ensure they are in good shape going into the business end of the season.

When asked whether he would give players a break or make changes to his training regime, Emery answered: "We are doing that. We are working, and also thinking and speaking with our performance [analyst] Darren [Burgess] and Julen Masach [strength and conditioning coach], for this week and this month.

"You have to balance the players because they play a lot of matches in the next month, with the Europa League and the FA Cup. So we are doing that."
