Arsenal boss Emery: Golden Boot was Aubameyang target

Arsenal boss Emery: Golden Boot was Aubameyang target

The striker will rue that miss but he still shares the Golden Boot with Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah after finishing the season with 22 Premier League goals.

Sergio Aguero, of champions Manchester City, was next in line with 21 goals. We are representing Africa, that's cool.

"It's hard in the Premier League, we all know that, we've all seen sides who have started well and disappeared, and I think the strength and mentality - things that have been built over a long time here - the thing that serves you well isn't tactics, it's culture and environment". I said nothing to the guys because I didn't want them to only focus on me.

"Yeah, it was near - but sometimes that can happen".

Ashley Barnes pulled a goal back, before Eddie Nketiah forced a late goal in off Tom Heaton. I'm a team player and if I wasn't scoring, it wouldn't have mattered.

"We will go to Baku three or four days before the final, Saturday I think, and prepare for the match over the last three training sessions".

Arsenal won the first leg of their Europa League semi-final against Valencia 3-1, but everyone knew the second leg away from home would be far tougher.

"Of course the last months were not the best in the Premier League, but the whole season, we put in a great effort".

Unai Emery's side were largely excellent at the Emirates, where they played most of their matches with genuine aggression and intensity. I remember this match and I watched it two weeks ago when they drew with Chelsea.
