Unai Emery provides Sokratis injury update

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed the Gunners' fourth straight Premier League win, but the home side were made to work hard for the three points. After the game, Arsenal boss Unai Emery faced the press. Emery on the win Three points were important for us in terms of the table. The victory was very important. On Petr Cech We are happy with the goalkeepers. Petr has big experience, big quality, He started the season very well. Today he showed us he is playing very well. Emery on his goalkeepers Leno is calm and knows he is working well but also that we have three keepers and Cech is putting in good performances.We will give them chances to play in other competitions. It’s good for the team. Emery on being ready to make a sub just before the first goal We needed to change in this moment. But I decided to stop it and think again who we needed next. Would it have been Lacazette? This is not important. Emery on the tight nature of the game In 90 minutes there are moments for the opposition and moments for us. We need our goalkeeper to stop their attacking moments and our strikers to score in our attacking moments. I think today is a good example. Emery on starting slowly in the first half - again We want to control more the first half because we didn’t have the ball like we want because we conceded two or three important chances, but the second half we spoke in the dressing room to stop their attacking moments with better positioning on the pitch and also individually about each other helping more in the second half. On Sokratis' injury We don’t know now but it’s his knee. The doctors will wait until tomorrow, but I hope it’s not important.
