Unai Emery says Arsenal’s youngsters deserve their chance to shine.

The likes of Gabriel Martinelli, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson have all impressed so far this season.

And Emery will continue to give them opportunities if they maintain their high level of performance.

Speaking after Thursday’s win over Standard Liege, in which Martinelli and Willock scored, Emery said: “We want to give them chances, but we need to find our very high demands in our performance to achieve our targets.

“We are in one process and we want to do it as quickly as we can because our targets for the season are very important to achieve.

“Each match for the young players when they have the chance to play, if they play like tonight or before in the pre-season, then they deserve to be with us and to continue creating our way with them.

“Matches like tonight are good to use them because this competition is an important competition after the Premier League.

“They deserve to be with us in the next matches and they are coming in at a key moment with a high level. I think they are close with us.”
