Every Word From Arsenal Manager Unai Emery After Demolishing Fulham In The Premier League

On the win – was it Arsenal’s best performance?

I don’t think about this performance as the best because I am finding every time we can get better.

It depends on each match what is happening on the pitch. I think when we scored the first goal we could play with more confidence.

I think the first half the defensive moments were more difficult, we worked very hard in the second half to impose this result.

We are happy, but also calm because we know each match is difficult. We are going to continue in our process with humility and with this victory.

On the Arsenal fans signing ‘we’ve got our Arsenal back’ and whether it makes him proud

We need to feel together with the supporters, inside with the club, the players. I think this mentality is very important for us.

We need to show them our quality, our strong work, then together we can be happy – like today.

We need them to support us for each match. The players on the pitch feel like they support them.

On the Aubameyang/Lacazette understanding

It’s one process to know better after every training, every match, how we are better on the pitch with the players and our ideal system.

Today is the first time we played more clearly with 4-4-2. First with Welbeck and Lacazette and then with Auba.

We continue to try and find our best performance with the players and the combination.

On Lucas Torreira

He is very young, this is his first experience at this level but he was playing in Italy and with his national team.

Here, he is doing very well. The first impressive thing is his humility every day, to listen to learn.

He played in the middle, on the right and his performance is the same.

His career is starting and we want him to give us his best performance and his quality.

On whether Arsenal can win the title

I don’t want to look behind, every match is different and very difficult.

We are going up in the table little by little giving us a better position for our objective. But I am just thinking about the next match against Leicester at the Emirates, in our home, with our supporters. I want to give them and to show them we are improving with our quality, with our mentality and above all with commitment we had here today.

When we lost the first two matches against Manchester City and Chelsea, we were calm and when we are winning now I think we need to be in the same way in our mentality.

Be calm, enjoy working, stay together, have one feeling with our supporters like today, but improving individually and collectively and finding our best performance in each match with combinations from the players.

Because we need to continue to improve – and we can.

On what pleased him most

We spoke yesterday and today before the match.

We played Thursday and the flight is long, but we want it like that. We want to not stop thinking and winning these matches, the concentration is one thing we need every time when we arrive at training and for matches to push ourselves a lot.

Not only the first XI, but the players at the back [on the bench] because we won a lot of matches with players who are starting on the bench and then when they are playing 25 or 30 minutes they are helping us and today is the same.

Players like Aubameyang, Ramsey and Guendouzi help us with their quality.

On whether the international break has come at a bad time

Every international break is important for the national teams and the players because they want to play with their national teams and their fans.

For us, it is about continuing to work but with a bit more calm for two weeks. But my mentality, my ideas and my focus is on Leicester.

There is two weeks and so more time to prepare for this match and to rest sometime next week, Saturday and Sunday.

On what time Arsenal got back on Friday and whether it was a worry

No, our players have the habit of playing a lot games. We arrived back very late but Friday we had the day off to rest the players.

Saturday morning our first conversation was speaking about the match today. We had 24 hours of a lot of concentration to win against Fulham for this match.

For us and the players who are away for the internationals, they are going to play Wednesday, Thursday. Lucas I think is travelling to Asia, very long travel, but the high level players play like that.

On Mesut Ozil’s injury

Yesterday [Saturday] he came in with pain and he couldn’t train or play today.

On whether that sort of injury is a concern when playing in the Europa League

No, in each training also he can get injured.

For example today Holding, Monreal, Iwobi, Welbeck played today and Thursday. I think they have the capacity to play a lot of matches. They are big and in the level of these matches every player wants to play and they are preparing for that.
