Unai Emery insists Arsenal need to rely on themselves if they are to finish in the top four.
A 1–0 win over Watford moved them back to the fourth place and their chances of competing in the Champions League next season is looking brighter. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s early goal proved to be the winner as the Gunners tamed down a 10 man Watford.
Ben Foster’s goal kick deflected off the Gabon international and got back into the Hornet’s net. Only a few moments later Watford captain Troy Deeney had to leave the field after receiving a marching order from the referee. The decision came after he appeared to have elbowed midfielder Lucas Torreira.
Emery said, “Our position in the table is very important.
“It is in our hands, to take the top four.
“We were working to push the goalkeeper when he wanted to play like he was playing. It’s a very good action from Auba.
“I think we can control the match better, and I think it was very important in this position with one player more, to break their lines and to attack the last third better.
“But I think it’s very positive to have all three points.”
