Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has said that he wants his team to ‘suffer’ following their 3-0 victory over FK Qarabag in Europe League on Thursday.
Goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Emile Smith-Rowe and Matteo Guendouzi ensured victory for Emery’s men.
Emery, who said he wants his side to suffer after defeating the Azerbaijan side, insisted that he doesn’t want the Gunners to play easy matches again.
“Good evening. Yes, each match for us is not easy”, Emery told a press conference as quoted by Inside Futbol.
“Firstly, because when we are playing away, we are playing against a good team like Qarabag today.
“Good players also and with a very great ambition and excited to play against us.
“Their mobility, their quality in above all the first half, I think we suffered in the match.
“But I want to suffer. I want to not find easy matches, like today.”
Emery added,” Then, in our moments, to show you and show them our possibilities, our quality and our organised moments.
“I think in the 90 minutes today, the team worked very well”
Emery’s men have now won eight games in a row across all competitions after their poor start this campaign.
They will now face Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday in Premier League
