"But after six matches winning in the Premier League, it hasn't changed".
Arsenal's 5-1 win over Fulham in their last game before the global break was the ninth consecutive victory under Emery, and was played to the soundtrack of Arsenal fans singing: "We've got our Arsenal back".
"I think you've got to look at the situation and ask: 'How many top teams in the Premier League and elsewhere could he get in?' And you'd have to say them all - and that speaks volumes about the type of player he is".
"If we are remembering the last match at the Emirates (against Watford), we won but not playing like we want, with the control against the opposition".
Since losing their opening two games under Emery to champions Manchester City and FA Cup winners Chelsea, the Spaniard has not tasted defeat.
However, the Gunners, who have struggled with negotiations with members of their squad over the past decade or so in the Premier League, made a statement of intent when Arsenal retracted their offer. "But in the first 45 minutes I thought we needed to do better". My focus is on every match.
'We are one team with a very high level and very high demand for us, ' he said. "They are very competitive, have very good players and we need every single player, and our mentality together to be stronger than in the last match".
Unai Emery insists there is plenty to work
"But now he is getting better, he is training with us in some things and I think this progress this is very positive".
But Emery rejected calls for the Premier League to help clubs out by stopping broadcasters from moving games ahead of European matches.
The Gunners host Leicester on Monday night, less than three days before they kick off their Europa League Group E clash against Sporting Lisbon in Portugal.
"Every player needs to feel [he is ready] to play every match", he said.
Arsenal lost their first two matches but now trail the top three by only two points.
"I prefer to play Saturday or Sunday". I'm thinking about Monday's match first. We want to play a lot of matches.
Emery has managed to find the right balance.
