Im happy with Arsenal. I know to be in the first eleven is hard and it is always like that in a big club, but I must keep fighting.

Some pundits and fans have criticised Emery for trying to get Arsenal to play out from the back despite several very sketchy moments, but Lacazette is confident it will work out for the best.

We have already learned a lot, but mistakes are going to happen. The manager said, if we do this kind of thing, we can concede a goal. So, we know everything. We just did mistakes because we are learning like children.

It is okay, it is good, we will be better week after week. We deserved the win, so before the international break it was good to get the three points.

I think we won just two games in 2018 away from home. This season we want to be better away and it was the first game we have won. I hope that it will the first of many.
