Emery heaps praise on players after comeback win

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has said that his team played with 'heart' as they came from behind to secure a 3-1 Premier League triumph over Leicester City on Monday night.

The Gunners found themselves trailing early on after a Hector Bellerin own goal but they managed to equalise before the break after a sublime goal from Mesut Ozil, who was the skipper on the night.

Following the interval, they continued their dominance over the Foxes and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came from the bench to settle the clash with a quick-fire brace.

Speaking after the game, Emery admitted his side suffered during the opening half an hour of the match but was pleased with the performance thereafter, he told Sky Sports: "We won today when we started playing with heart.

"The first 30 minutes we didn't control the match with the possession and we suffered, but we are happy because this is our progression, our way and we need to re-organise and play with heart."

With the victory, the Gunners have won 10 games across all competitions and they have managed to achieve the feat for only the sixth time in their footballing history.

Arsenal are presently occupying the fourth spot in the standings ahead of Tottenham Hotspur on goal difference and they are now just two points off the top of the table despite starting the season with back-to-back losses.
