Unai Emery reveals why he subbed Henrikh Mkhitaryan and speaks out on Ramsey contract: Press Conference

It has been a dramatic afternoon at the Emirates, where Arsenal beat Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in the North London Derby.

Following the victory, Arsenal boss Unai Emery has spoken out to the press.

Was this your best day at Arsenal?

The best day is when I signed here.

Emery on the win

Now I am thinking about the match on Wednesday. This was a very big victory, we give our supporters this victory because it’s a special match for them. It’s special as well for us, but it’s three points – like in Bournemouth last weekend. We need to continue in our process. Today, for our confidence was a big match.

On why he made the second half changes

Lacazette has very big ambitions scoring against ever team and because Aaron has experience against Tottenham, he has experience that we can come back in the 90 minutes. These were the reasons.

Emery on Ramsey and his contract

When thinking about the first XI, Aaron has chances to help us starting the match or in the second half. Above all today, it can be his day because it’s Tottenham and he has experience. We want to continue with him our process, helping him to be with us with his performance and quality.

On whether there is now belief they can win at Old Trafford

We know it’s very difficult in Manchester. In history and in the present. We want to prepare in the best possible way to have the best performance. This is a big challenge for us and we want to have challenges like Wednesday.

On the confrontation after Spurs’ equaliser

It was a moment on the pitch with players with big emotion. We need to be calm.
