Arsenal

Emery pleased with Arsenal's progress

24th February 2019, 18:58 by Tom Hill

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is happy his side is making plenty of progress after their 2-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

The Gunners won their second game in a row after two first-half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan punished Southampton.

While Emery's men should have scored more, they at least moved back into the top four and the former Sevilla boss is pleased with his team's progress.

Emery told reporters: "I think we deserved to win. We got the chances, we played very well and I think we can do more [to make a] difference to the result in the final 20 minutes of the first half.

"The second half was maybe an under-performance from the first but I think also we deserved another goal.

"It's difficult to keep the intensity for 90 minutes, in the second half we continued with finding attacking moments and creating chances. The most important is the three points at home with our supporters.

"We are thinking it's a good step and it's game by game. Now we are happy, we are at the moment in this position and we carry on."
