Unai Emery reacts to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty miss

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has backed Pierre-emerick Aubameyang after his penalty miss against Tottenham. Arsenal leading goalscorer missed the opportunity to seal a win in north London derby against Tottenham when he failed to score the costly penalty. However, Emery has backed the Gabon international after his misery. "I spoke with him [Aubameyang]," said Emery in his post match press conference. "He had 35 minutes to help us for the victory. He did this action and got the penalty. After, you can score or not. It’s not a mistake, it’s one action. The same with Laca. He had good chances, but no problem. Today we create some good chances but today it’s not enough." "Two months ago I said VAR is coming to help the referees," he added. "Today for me the referees had a big personality, but it’s not enough to make the best decisions in difficult actions in the box. "VAR is coming to help them. In 90 minutes if you create chances and score, you can win. I think we played today with a big spirit, tactically we adapted well."
