Unai Emery reveals what he said at half-time to inspire win over Tottenham

Unai Emery has revealed what he told his team at half-time to inspire them for 4-2 victory against Tottenham. Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey were introduced at half-time and Emery’s substitutions immediately made an impact. Asked about what was said at half-time, Emery replied: "First, it was about being calm. We changed small details but what’s been most important for me at half-time is to be calm, to give them confidence, because maybe yesterday we were 1-0 up and then we finished the half 2-1 down. "Give them confidence on the best moments in the first half, to repeat that in the second half. ‘Change something special – I changed two players at half-time, but not because Iwobi and Mkhitaryan were doing badly, but because we needed to change and push with different players. ‘I explained yesterday that Aaron has experience in derbies like yesterday, and the second was that I thought we could do better with players with the capacity to score against them."
