Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford says new boss Unai Emery has made Arsenal one of the ‘strongest teams in the Premier League’, the Independent reports.

After taking over from Arsene Wenger at the end of last season, Emery has the Gunners back fighting at the top of the Premier League once again and competing for a place in the Champions League following two poor league campaigns that saw them miss out.

The Spaniard has the Gunners playing a more aggressive and higher intensity style of football, something which helped them to a significant 4-2 win at the weekend over their North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Rashford spoke to the United website ahead of the fixture and spoke about the Gunners new aggressive side.

It’s almost a different Arsenal side now. They’re playing better football, they’re a more aggressive team and looking at them now they’re one of the strongest teams in the league. We have to take all that into account and no matter what happens we have to try to get the three points.
