EPL: What Unai Emery told Arsenal players during half time of 4-2 win over Spurs


Arsenal midfielder, Lucas Torreira, has revealed what Unai Emery told the squad at half time, which inspired their 4-2 victory over Tottenham.

The Gunners were trailing at the break, after goals from Eric Dier and Harry Kane cancelled out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener.

But Emery’s men completed a stunning second-half comeback to take three points away from the North London Derby.

Aubameyang scored a stunning equaliser, before Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira sealed victory at The Emirates.

Asked about what was said at half-time, Torreira told ESPN: “[Emery told us] to be calm, to continue playing because there were 45 more minutes left, that we keep attacking because obviously in the second half we were going to find more spaces.

“In fact, it happened and we scored the goals at key moments.

“In the first half we started very strong, pressing very high, sometimes we managed to steal the ball very high we had many chances after scoring the first goal.

“Then, for different reasons, because of football too, they scored two goals and went ahead.

“In the second half, we made some changes. The players who came on from the bench did very well.

“We listened to the manager and we improved many things. That worked for us to get the victory.”
