Arsenal boss Unai Emery was happy his side got back to winning ways today against Fulham after their heavy 5-1 defeat away to Liverpool last weekend.
Goals from Granit Xhaka, Alexandre Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang mean the Gunners move to within two points of fourth placed Chelsea, although the Stamford Bridge outfit have a game in hand.
Speaking after the game Emery admitted that today’s 4-1 win at the Emirates will come as a welcome confidence booster.
“We wanted to win and this result will give confidence. We continued to push and create chances and we can be happy.’’ Emery told BBC Sport.
However, after Aboubakar Kamara made it 2-1 with 20 minutes to go several boos began to ring out around the Emirates, but Emery dismissed his fans concerns and insisted his side deserved their victory.
“It is normal for the fans to have some doubt at 2-1, but the team continued to do their work and played our planned game. I thought we deserved the scoreline. We scored with different players and we can continue to build our identity with the players.”
