Unai Emery is “happy” it is difficult for Aston Villa to maintain their impressive start in the Premier League as he believes the best is coming from his side.
Villa host Newcastle at Villa Park on Tuesday, live on TNT Sports, looking to extend their unbeaten home run in the Premier League which stretches back 17 games until February last year.
Emery’s men sit fourth in the table and could move up to second on Tuesday, depending on Arsenal’s performance at Nottingham Forest in a match live on TNT Sports.
Emery turned down interest from Newcastle at the end of 2021 to stay at Villarreal, but he has .
However, the Spaniard believes there is more to come, especially if Villa can start to adapt to their form on the road.
“We have to be consistent in our thinking and that is the case,” said the former Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain manager.
“We are building a team and we are still working a lot to improve and we need to be strong in our formation and feel our commitment to be strong and everyone ready to play and contribute, they also want to.
“Results, scoring goals and scoring less goals, we have to try in the second part of the season to overcome a big challenge for us and I am happy. I am happy to be willing and I know that it will be very difficult and this is a difficult message for the supporters, for the players and for everyone. “
Emery has named a strong squad that fell apart at Stamford Bridge when Villa returned from a two-week winter break, and is confident they will shake off the rust ahead of their return to the Premier League.
“We were difficult in the first half,” he added. “It was important to stay strong in the dressing room and remind ourselves of how successful we were in the past and how competitive we are when facing a match like tonight we played against the team. [Chelsea] who are the contenders for this race.”
Newcastle are in desperate need of points if they are to shake off Villa to fight for the top four and return to the UEFA Champions League. They are currently 10th, 14 points clear of Villa and the top four.
The Magpies’ poor form on the road has been a major factor in their woes this season.
Howe’s men have the second worst record in the Premier League, having won just once when they thrashed Sheffield United 8-0 in September.
