“We want to win. This is always the way, but it is clear that defensively we suffered three goals but also we had chances to score more goals. I think the result is 3-2 but we also think we created chances to score more score,” Emery told BTSports.
“In the first half we were creating chances to score, and for that I am happy, I am in the match thinking we are well on the pitch. But also they had options, chances to score and lack of effectiveness was the
“Our reaction is good, we had chances to go 2-2 and we deserved to do more at half-time. The half-time was good for us and in the second half we needed to continue this control, but I think that in the second half we didn’t push and keep possession like we did in the first half, and in our moments, our chances, we didn’t do, and they did.
“That is why the results is 3-2. But it is one process. In the second half we played with two midfielders, 19 and 21 years old. They improved and are continuing. I am happy without the result.”
