Arsenal head coach Unai Emery commented on the team’s defeat in the English League Cup against Liverpool (5: 5, 4: 5 on a penalty spot).
“Crazy match. I am proud of the work done, we had a high pace in the first 45 minutes. At the end of the match, we won until the very last moment. Penalties are always 50 to 50, we lost.
Sad, but our work deserves more. There are many good points.
Both teams cannot be satisfied with the actions in the defense. But for the fans it was an amazing 90 minutes. The result has been changing all the time. It was impressive.
We can be proud of the work done, but not the result. Mesut Özil is back and helps us with his playing qualities and spirit. We planned to replace it and discussed this in advance.
Granite Jack? I can’t say how we intend to play on Saturday. We must go step by step, ”said Emery.
