“I think that the team played a very complete match,” Emery said after the final whistle.

“The only negative was the goal we conceded but the team reacted well to that early setback and we controlled the ball throughout the game.

“We pressed very well and we always wanted to score more. We played some beautiful football, we were very ambitious and we need to continue like this to keep improving.”
