Unai Emery has admitted that Arsenal have been winning games with very poor performances so far this season.
The Spanish manager has managed to win nine matches in a row although his side lost two opening games against Manchester City and Chelsea.
The Gunners are now looking to make it 10 consecutive wins as they take on Leicester City on Monday night at Emirates Stadium.
But Emery has admitted that he fears Leicester striker Jamie Vardy, who scored three times in five games so far this season.
“He’s a very good player,” Emery said with regard to Leicester’s pacy attacking threat Vardy.
“He has talent, his speed [helps] for the counter-press.”
“On Monday we will not want to give him possibilities to continue scoring against us.”

“We need to continue working calmly in our bodies and our mentality,” the former Paris Saint-Germain boss added.
“Our target now is the same as in the first matches. The first two matches we lost, against Manchester City and Chelsea.”
“But after six matches winning in the Premier League, it hasn’t changed.”
“[We need] this calm because we [beat] a lot of opposition teams with very [poor] performances.”
“We need to stay with the best teams in the Premier League. To stay with them, we need to do better and get better at different things.”
