Premier League week 13
17 games in a row without a defeat for Arsenal that set the best run in Europe so far this season. In this stretch the Gunners have recorded 13 wins and 4 draws. Today they won at Bournemouth 2-1 thanks to Aubameyang and are one point behind fourth place Chelsea. The race for the Champions League spots continue.
Coach Emery reacts on another important win:
The result is very important, but we spoke in the dressing room at half-time after they’d scored and the process is in our mentality also. The result is very important and we went up 1-0, but they scored so we needed to keep calm and continue our control, which is getting better on the pitch.
I think we knew this was a difficult stadium and a difficult team, and they were four points behind us, and it was an important game for them to be near us. I am very happy with how the players and fans supported and pushed us today. The control over the 90 minutes with keeping calm in a lot of moments was very important in this victory.
Today is 17 matches unbeaten, but in the last three matches we drew and it is not enough for us, for our mind, for our objective – and today, to win, we were speaking during the week about how important it was to win, and that it is very difficult. It was a big moment for us.
We have lots of matches coming, and we are playing teams with the same objective as us. I think the team spirit today and the supporters helped us to feel more strong.
