Ligue 1: Emery - League success important

Les Parisiens are hoping to win a fifth straight league title this term but have made an indifferent start to the campaign by their own high standards, losing at Monaco before drawing at home to Saint-Etienne.

Emery's men have bounced back by securing victories against Caen and Dijon, and they will move to the top of the table for the first time this season if they secure an away win at Toulouse on Friday night.
The former Sevilla boss, who succeeded Laurent Blanc as PSG coach during the summer, is confident his side can go on and win the league, and he has placed great importance on retaining their title.
He said: "The league means 38 matches to honour the team that's the most consistent. For me it's very important to win the league."
