Unai Emery put an end to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s unbeaten run in Premier League as Arsenal won 2-0 over Manchester Untied.

After the game, the Arsenal coach has spoken out on the win, Aubameyang’s penalty and many more.

On the win – best of the season?

“I don’t know if it’s the best, I think we’re improving and we are being competitive in different matches.

“We cam feel today very proud of every player and I want to say to our supporters thank you because they helped us a lot today.

“There was big spirit and big commitment.”

On Aubameyang’s penalty – who decided he would take it

“Here we have some different players who can shoot the penalty. They decided.

“Aubameyang has experience and is a specialist.

“Today I had the same confidence in both.”

On the penalty decision

“Soft, like last week against Tottenham which resulted in a penalty against us.”

On Xhaka’s goal

“Xhaka is a specialist at shooting, he can shoot from different positions on the pitch.

“Today he scored, but I think he can do more.”

On the Arsenal fan who pushed Chris Smalling

“We don’t want that, but it’s not my control.

“I think we can enjoy with our supporters and today I am proud of our supporters who helped us, but I think also we must do this with respect.”

On Josh Kroenke being here

“No. I didn’t speak with him, but I know he is here. Maybe tomorrow we can meet.”

We are going to play the next match against Newcastle here in three weeks, that’s a lot. Our focus now is Thursday night (against Rennes).”
