Unai Emery hailed his Arsenal team’s commitment following today’s 3-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League.
Two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang helped The Gunners on their way against Sean Dyche’s struggling Clarets side.
Speaking after the game, Emery described the difficulties his team faced today against Burnley.
“It was a tough match. It was difficult because they pushed a lot with long balls and the second action,” Emery told BBC’s MOTD.
“But we played well with our body and our character was good. The victory was deserved and in the table, we are closer to Tottenham and Chelsea.
“I think we won today not because we played well but because every player had a very big commitment.
“We knew Burnley are an organised team and were going to push us but we didn’t lose too many long balls from the goalkeeper.”
“I think we controlled the match like we wanted. We had to make an alteration of our game plan but after I think our game plan gave us the victory.”
Emery again mentioned the need for Arsenal to improve defensively.
“We’re scoring lots of goals but we need more clean sheets and our defeat today was maybe that,” said the former PSG boss.
