Auba - We knew we had to be more aggressive

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Another Sunday game, another Auba goal.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's record on what is supposed to be the day of rest is remarkable: 16 games played, 14 goals scored.

But the Gabon international freely admits that it was only a concerted push after the interval that allowed him to continue his record.

on winning after three consecutive draws…
I think we knew that it would be a tough game today and it was really tough, but it’s good to be back with a win 
 
on whether they caught Bournemouth off guard with his game-winning goal…
Maybe! I think Alex gave the ball to Sead and I just sprinted into the area, then he gave me a good pass.
 
on whether they came out more determined in the second half…
I think the goal before half-time was bad for us because at half time we spoke and we knew that in the second half we had to come back out with a better intensity. We knew that we had to put some aggression into the game and do better than we did in the first half. 
 
on whether we’re building something… 
Yeah, I think so. We are following the process and we will continue in this way. The group are living well so we will try to continue in this way.
