Arsenal fans at the Emirates last night were treated to yet another three goals as the Gunners recorded their tenth win in a row. We had to come from behind again but Unai Emery thinks that the fans lifted the team to keep fighting for the three points. The new boss said after the game: “When we were winning, controlling the game and finding chances to score, I think that’s the moment when our supporters pushed us forward and helped us. The atmosphere today was very big. The first 30 minutes was a difficult period and we needed to be together for our style and progressing in the match. We deserved to win today for everything in the 90 minutes.”
The win moves us up to Third place on goal difference and we really are mixing it with the big boys at the moment. But Emery just wants to concentrate on the next game: “It was very important for us to beat Leicester because they’re not far behind us. Now we’ve created a lot of distance with the teams behind us.
“Now in front we are looking at teams like Liverpool, like Manchester City, like Chelsea, but it’s not important to think about the end. We need to think about the next match against Crystal Palace on Sunday and I also think the Europa League is very important on Thursday.”
The fans are really getting behind the new manager, and ten wins in a row surely helps our mood. As our Man of the match Alexander Iwobi says. “Let’s make it 11″……
A big thank you to our fans, from our very own #BIG17 ??
