The Spanish manager also spoke of the way more ‘respect’ needs to be furnished by supporters, from a fan invaded the pitch and confronted United’s Chris Smalling – the same day that Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish was assaulted by using a fan throughout the derby match against Birmingham City.
Emery added that he “did not want” to find out that behaviour and Arsenal released an assertion strongly condemning the supporter at the Emirates. The attack on Smalling occurred after Arsenal had scored their second goal – your opponent was unhurt plus the individual was arrested and escorted through the field.
“We would want to apologise to Chris and Man utd, and are generally pleased that [the spectator] was apprehended and arrested,” look at statement. “We will likely be working closely using the Metropolitan Police of their investigation. The average person is likewise banned from Arsenal matches home and away. Our matchday staff receive ongoing training on managing incidents this way.”
Ole Gunnar Solskj?r also condemned the incident.

Emery said: “When we were struggling inside the table with increased points difference, we stayed balanced and after this, so next victory, we will maintain positivity but we can’t change our idea – which would be to think game by game. We are happy today but Chelsea is with us, and they are United and Tottenham.
“Our last matches are typical difficult and being consistent is important. At the present time, I believe we’re playing confidently in every match and so we showed everybody that. But we will have to stay calm, remain calm and continue improving. Controlling emotion is really important. Keeping this consistency inside our system is vitally important.”

United designed a few chances while Romelu Lukaku and Fred hit the woodwork, leaving Solskj?r to lament a possibility missed.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored to set Arsenal in control at 2-0.
“Today is the lowest we’re because we lost and missed a chance to put pressure on Spurs,” Solskj?r said. “We have won games we haven’t deserved to win and then we lost a personal game we failed to need to lose. We created five big chances and hit the woodwork twice. I should say also don’t think it had become a penalty. Jon Moss could possibly be disappointed as he sees it again.”
