Unai Emery reveals key factor that motivated Arsenal ahead of Chelsea win

After yesterday’s 2-0 home win against Chelsea, although Arsenal are still 5th in the league, Gunners cut the 6 points gap between them and the Blues and now are 3 points behind 4th placed Chelsea.

Speaking after the game, Unai Emery revealed the key factor that motivated Arsenal ahead of Chelsea win.

“We wanted to win for our fans,” Emery told BT Sport. (via TEAMtalk)

“The difference in the table [between ourselves and Chelsea] was six points, but this victory can help us be optimistic. We can be happy after today, but we need to take things game by game.

“We need to find the right balance at home and away. At home you can show all the supporters what you can do.

“The difference between last match and today’s game is very big, even with the same players, so we need to find that balance.”
