Aston Villa manager, Unai Emery has praised his team’s performance, as they beat Arsenal 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.
John McGinn’s early goal proved to be decisive for the hosts.
It is also their second successive victory over sides above them on the table, as they had defeated Manchester City 1-0 in midweek.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the Arsenal game, Emery said: “It was a tough match and we were tired, but we started the game well. They were imposing their position on the pitch, but our goalkeeper was amazing.
“We tried to defend and keep possession longer than we did. We competed and it was a fantastic three points in a tough week. We have to be happy but also keep balance.”
