Unai Emery says he was pleased with Arsenal’s performance as Alex Lacazette’s late goal rescued a well-deserved point against Liverpool at the Emirates.
The Frenchman cancelled out James Milner’s strike with eight minutes remaining and while the Gunners couldn’t find a winner, the vibe on the terraces was positive at the final whistle.
Emery had called for big performances from his players on Friday and he wasn’t let down with the likes of Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi all excelling.
Speaking to BT Sport after the final whistle, Unai Emery reflected: “We wanted to win but the performance is good, we push and we work the match, doing our tactics and with our supporters pushing us with energy.
“For the supporters it is a great match and a good spectacle but I am only 50% happy because we wanted to win.
“Today the balance was good in our speed and intensity. We worked very well for the 90 minutes and the two goals is the difference in the match. This is a point and a draw, maybe we deserve a little more.”
He added: “I think the progress takes a long time. Against Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, these were teams were all in front of us. I think in these three matches, today was the most complete performance.”
