Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bernd Leno spoke to Sky Sports after the 3-2 win over Everton. This is what they had to say.
Did you have to dig deep into well of character and energy?
Auba: It was a tough week, and it was hard today to find some energy at the end of the week but we did it. I think everyone is doing well, and giving more than 100% to win this game.
Did you feel you were hanging on?
Leno: Yeah, you could see that our power was gone at the end. When you see how we were fighting, when you can see how Auba is blowing, how much he was running – everyone is happy afterwards, we deserved this after this tough week. We have to keep going I think.
Auba’s goals were important, but what about Leno’s saves?
Auba: Yeah. We’re always happy to have him, hahaha. He saved us a couple of times at the right moment, we’re proud of him and we know we can count on him, that’s always good for us. He gave us some more energy to push and to give everything.
The 2nd goal – could you have done more?
Leno: Maybe my starting position could be higher, as a keeper it goes very quick. It was a bit unlucky for me, and very lucky for Richarlison, but in in the end it doesn’t matter. We won. That’s the main thing.
How good was Luiz pass for your first goal?
Auba: Great ball! I knew when I saw his face he was …[gets lost for word] … I just ran through, I was one against one and I love this.
Going for the 4th or hanging on to the one goal lead. Caught in two minds?
Auba: We tried to have some actions to score goals, but the most important was not to conceded. We defended with heart.
On 50 goals coming up for Arsenal
Auba: I’m just happy to score goals, I have to thank my teammates always!
