Unai Emery may not have been aware of it prior to kick-off on Thursday, but his team are well on the way to creating Arsenal history.
Our head coach has guided us to 11 consecutive wins since August, just three shy of our club record of 14 between September and November 1987.
“Three matches… that’s a lot of matches,” Emery said. “We are only thinking of the next match against Crystal Palace. We are also enjoying each moment with our supporters.
“Today we were with them and they were with us, supporters who had come from Arsenal, from London or from here. For us, it’s very important that supporters are with us and enjoy it. I’m enjoying continuing the work, our process.
“They have a high demand for us because every match is not easy for us. Historically, this has been very difficult for us and I know this. We are thinking about three points at Crystal Palace but we know that it’s very difficult to win there. For us, continuing to win is what we want but we know it’s not easy and we can lose.
“We’re only thinking about the best performance for us. We want to continue winning and we also want to continue to improve things. Each match is a big opportunity for every player to show us they can take big responsibility with this personality to play like we want. We need every player.”
