Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette talked about Unai Emery in the post-match interview after the side registered a 2-0 win over Newcastle United.
Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette were on target for Arsenal as the side entered the top-three with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United.
Rafael Benitez’s side hardly posed a threat for the Gunners throughout the game. With this win, Arsenal now have 63 points and stay two clear of both, Tottenham and Manchester United.
Lacazette netted in his 13th Premier League goal of the season with a chip against Newcastle United.
After the game, he gave a post-match interview, where he talked about the performance and also voiced his opinion on the head coach, Unai Emery.
Lacazette on Unai Emery:
After the game, Alexandre Lacazette appeared for the post-match interview, where he expressed his delight at the win.
He also stated that the team feels more confident under Unai Emery’s management, than under Arsene Wenger, who was the manager until the last season at Arsenal.
“I think we are more confident and everybody knows what we have to do,” Lacazette said.
“When you win a lot of games in a row of course there is a lot of confidence.”
The forward stated that Arsenal can qualify for the Champions League, and thanked the fans for their support.
“I can feel the difference in the atmosphere from last season, now we can maybe go to the Champions League,” he added.
‘The fans helped us to get third place. We work every day to be in third place, now we must stay in this position.”
Arsenal face stiff competition for the top-4 race from Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea, who are 4th, 5th and 6th respectively. While the side is two clear of Tottenham and United, Chelsea trail Arsenal by three points.
The Gunners have failed to qualify for the Champions League since the last two seasons and would be desperate for a top-4 finish in the Premier League. Arsenal are currently in the quarterfinals of the Europa League, where they face Napoli.
