He said Villa are "not contenders" to finish in the top five but "we can dream".
Thursday's Europa Conference League win over AZ Alkmaar was "very exciting" and "a good experience" for how to compete in Europe.
On Villa fans, he said: "They are demanding but we have to try and connect with them. With good results it's easier, but when we are not taking good results we have to be together."
He is enjoying the "positive energy" in games at Villa Park in the current unbeaten run.
On Fulham, Emery said: "I respect them a lot. The history, the players and coach. They are very organised, very competitive. It's going to be a very difficult match."
