He said, “They started very strongly, winning in Mallorca, Cádiz and Vitoria. They’re fluid with and without the ball, as well as having a lot of presence in the opposition half. They are fluid with and without the ball, and they have a lot of presence in the opposition half. They demand a lot positionally with and without the ball.

To overcome Osasuna, Emery underlined that Villarreal will need to be at their best: “It’s a very important challenge.
“They are going to demand a lot from us. It’s an important game, it’s more than just three points. If you win, you draw level with them, and if you lose, they’ve got six more points than you. Last year they beat us at home. To stop that from happening again, we need to continue growing as a team and improve on certain things from the last few games.”
