Unai Emery reveals chat with Matteo Guendouzi after red card against Blackpool

'He's playing well. He's playing with a spirit.

Emile Smith-Rowe of Arsenal celebrates with teammate Ainsley Maitland-Niles of Arsenal after scoring his team's second goal during the Carabao Cup Fourth Round match between Arsenal and Blackpool at Emirates Stadium on October 31, 2018 in London, England.

"We have spoken. It is very important to control, but I don't think he lost control. And the red card is one circumstance in the game".

Petr Cech made his return after a month out with a hamstring injury, but he endured a hard day and nearly gifted Blackpool a goal when he was robbed in his own penalty area, only to be bailed out by the offside flag when Nathan Delfouneso found the net.

"I miss the game and the intensity and the beauty of our game. And I'm going to prepare with other players and thinking we can have the performance for a big match on Saturday".

"We will choose 18 players for the Blackpool match, the young players also", added Emery. The action's an action, he plays that action as a normal moment in the game.

Watford are aware of the interest Doucoure has been attracting and the new five-year deal he signed with the club gives them an edge in any potential negotiations with his suitors. "We will continue with our ideas".

The Gunners will also be without Konstantinos Mavropanos and Laurent Koscielny, as the wait for the duo goes on.

Emery said he's well aware of the long history between the two clubs and is looking forward to the challenge.

"Where we play that is a yellow". "But only one can win".
