Emile Smith Rowe: We need to keep pushing forward

by Koolkola

Emile Smith Rowe’s second strike in two games gave us a first league double over Chelsea since 2003/04.

After a high press by the team had forced Chelsea into a mistake at the back, Aubameyang was on hand to set up rjr youngster for the only goal of the game.

He spoke to the press after the game

On a needed win…

I feel like it’s an important result for us. We had to dig deep, it was a really tough test for us tonight but it’s really important for our season.

On forcing a mistake for the only goal…

Yeah, we work on that in training, pressing, the high press. We did well to make them make a mistake and then Auba set me up.

On a lucky finish…

Yeah, definitely. It happens sometimes, I’m just happy it went in. As you say, it was a lucky finish.

On scoring a second goal in two games…

It means so much to score for this fantastic club. I want to keep pushing on now.

On Chelsea rejecting him as a kid…

Yeah, you got that right. But that’s the past, I’m obviously focused on Arsenal. Arsenal are my club.

On being knackered…

I’m so tired. I feel like the team played well today. We looked tired at times, we had to dig deep but we’re happy with the three points today.

On what Arsenal showed tonight…

It showed our character, how much heart we’ve got in us. Yeah, definitely [we answered some questions], we defended really well in patches and after a tough season that was a good performance.

On the future of the club…

We’re working really hard in training and we showed how good we can be, we need to keep pushing forward and I feel like this team can do big things.

On nutmegging Thiago Silva…

I can’t remember, but if there was, I’ll take it.
