And they are officially the hardest working team in the Premier League having ran more than any other side this season.

Brazil superstar Neymar, 26, was signed by Emery at Paris Saint-Germain and won Ligue 1 under him last year.

Speaking ahead of tonight’s friendly against Uruguay at the Emirates, he said: “Arsenal are playing really great football.

“They are coming from a great run in recent matches and everybody knows he’s [Emery] a really great coach. We know about their quality.”

Neymar reportedly fell out with Emery at PSG over the Spaniard’s obsession with video analysis, though denied the claims.

The ex-Barcelona star said: “I was really happy to work with him because he’s a really hard working guy. He really wanted to coach us and really wanted to study about football.

“I think he will bring good things for Arsenal, which is a really huge and important club here in England. I wish him luck.”

Neymar, who was given a special cap for earning 100 Brazil call-ups, will face Cameroon at MK Dons on Tuesday following tonight’s Uruguay clash.

One person who can show him some of the sights in England is Everton star Richarlison, who broke into the national squad in August.

Yet Neymar is hoping he can show the 21-year-old the ropes when it comes to international football.

Joined by his son Davi Lucca at his press conference, he said: “He has this trick to solve matches, to play well in great matches as he is doing now for Everton.

“I expect him to grow up, to keep developing in his career.

“I hope I can help him to achieve his goals and to help inside the pitch and even outside the pitch, as a friend, as a colleague.”
