Emery quick to praise Arsenal

25th November 2018, 18:15 by Tom Hill

Arsenal coach Unai Emery was pleased with his side's response as they found a way to beat Bournemouth.

The Gunners moved to within one point of the top four in the Premier League following their 2-1 win on Sunday.

Emery's side took the lead when Cherries man Jefferson Lerma scored a spectacular own goal to wrong-foot goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

Joshua King found an equaliser just before half-time but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his eighth goal of the season to secure all three points.

Arsenal extended their unbeaten run to 17 matches in the process and Emery was pleased to see his team find a way to win.

He told BBC Sport: "We are happy and before the match we knew it would be a difficult match and that we needed to win today to be near the top four. Bournemouth were four points behind us and could have been near our position with a win.

"In 90 minutes we deserved to win. We worked with the system sometimes, it's another possibility and we spoke in the dressing room about how we can be better and control matches. But we have won with another system and we can also do that.

"Bournemouth pushed a lot but I'm very happy with every player and how they worked and it's good for next week. We are going to play another match against a top team like Tottenham."
