Unai Emery Lauds Arsenal 'Intensity' as Rotated Squad Cruise Past Southampton

       Unai Emery was pleased with the 'positive energy' his Arsenal players showed in their 2-0 win over So

As reported earlier, owing to the goal and assist by their midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Arsenal defeated Southampton 2-0 in their English Premier League match at home.

Bournemouth capitalised on an Arsenal mistake to pull one back, before second-half goals from Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette secured the win.

There were still more than 20 minutes remaining when Mesut Ozil slid down the gears, dropping into an amble as he strolled across to take a second-half set-piece for Arsenal.

Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi start at the base of the midfield, with Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan likely to be operating in a more attacking role behind the striker. "Today with our supporters here, we had a good atmosphere", Emery told the BBC.

While they have now won their last seven league matches in a row at The Emirates, their away performances have been patchy.

'At the moment Tottenham are better than us in the table and it is hard to win there so it will be a great test for us'.




"I don't think we were good in any aspect of the game, with or without the ball, mentality wasn't great, it's been disappointing and we need to reflect on it honestly".

"We need to use different players, different systems, as each match is different".

Arsenal will welcome Bournemouth to the Emirates Stadium for a Premier League clash on Wednesday, a midweek game that Arsenal will be expecting to win.

Bournemouth responded well and created a couple of decent chances to level, the best falling for Ryan Fraser, whose strike was saved well by Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal.

'Arsenal did have individuals who played well and they were too good for us, ' he said.
