“He has experience, he shoots a lot of penalties,” Emery said of Aubameyang. “Sometimes scoring, maybe sometimes not scoring. The most important is that it’s one action, like another on the pitch. With personality, with confidence.”
Emery also called for his players to “control their emotion” ahead of the crucial run-in, and for Thursday’s Europa League match against Rennes, when they must overturn a 3-1 deficit.
“We are happy today, we are better in the table after this result but Chelsea is with us, United is with us and Tottenham also is with us,” Emery said. “The last matches are all difficult matches. Being consistent is very important. At the moment I think we are playing with confidence in each match and today we showed everybody that. We must be calm, be patient and continue improving.”
