Match winner Reiss Nelson and captain for the night Alexandre Lacazette spoke to the BBC after tonight’s 1-0 win over Leeds in the FA Cup.
This is what they had to say.
What are your emotions after that?
Nelson: My emotions are high because they played very well in the first half. They’re a great team and they pressed us, we didn’t expect that. But we got the final goal in the end and that’s all that matters.
It was a much better second half performance, what did Arteta say at half-time?
Laca: He shouted a lot, he was not happy because we knew they would play like this and we didn’t respect what he said. But the second half was better, and thank you Reiss for the goal.
What’s it been like under Arteta?
Nelson: It’s been good, I think as a coach you have to have the aggressive side. In training he’s always pressuring us to play with passion and purpose, and I think you saw that – at times we played it wide and in the middle and it’s all paying off.
The win gives us confidence going forward, onto the Palace game so we can go there and do well. Getting two wins at the Emirates is good and we want to carry on going forward.
