Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Arsenal came from 2-1 down to beat Sp*rs 4-2 at the Emirates this afternoon. Mike Dean’s homeless goblins had been awarded a penalty for a dive, but couldn’t cope with Unai Emery’s half-time changes as Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Laczette changed the momentum.
The striker spoke to Sky Sports after the game, this is what he had to say about the turnaround and how the crowd helped the team on the day.
Auba 4-2 down, how did you turn that around?
We did a great first half, but after the first goal we conceded and we had a moment where we were a bit down, but at half-time we were confident. We spoke, and we knew we could do it in the second half, and we did.
With the fans and the atmosphere, we have power, we felt strong and we went for the win.
Are Arsenal more resilient?
Yes I think so. We can see always our second half, we play very well. We don’t give it up, that’s the mentality.
You’ve gone above Sp*rs. Now looking higher than 4th?
The most important right now is to continue this series of winning games, we are unbeaten and we have to keep this run going.
Best result/performance of the season so far?
I think so yeah!
