Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and David Luiz spoke to BT Sport after the 2-1 win over Burnley at the Emirates today. Here’s what they had to say.
BT: Pierre, two goals in two games, but more importantly two wins for Arsenal.
Yeah, I think we started well today, and it’s good to start like this with two wins before we go to Liverpool. We feel confident, we feel good and it was important because we played at home. We are happy today.
BT: David, how does it feel in a red shirt for a change?
Very good! I’m so happy to be here to try and do my job, and also to enjoy these quality players. I think this team has a lot to do, it can improve a lot, and it can fight for other competitions, so we’re gonna go step by step. It’s a pleasure to be here because everybody’s humble, everyone wants to learn and to improve, we want to make this club shine again.
BT: You looked confident out there, a pass across goal in the 4th minute. And the fans got behind you as well, no sense that you’re an ex-Chelsea player.
Luiz: I think it’s great to feel this support. I just try my best and my style is try and play football, and also to understand the game. We had to change a bit because the game showed we had to play in a different way. When you have confidence and you train with the team, you have to do the plan – and the plan is to play out from the back. I was trying to do that, and in the end I think we did it well.
BT: With the new signings, are you equipped to challenge through the season at the top?
Auba: We feel stronger, with players like David, Dani Ceballos, Pepe. They came here and now we feel stronger. I feel sure that we can fight for the top four.
