Henrikh Mkhitaryan is Unai Emery’s top gun

Arsenal Keen To Close Gap On Spurs Ahead Of Derby Clash – Emery

Henrikh Mkhitaryan knows Arsenal can not rest on their laurels after moving back into the Premier League top four with victory over Southampton.

Emery has worked hard to iron out the flaws in the 22-year-old's game and Iwobi has shown signs of progress in recent weeks, playing a pivotal role in the two goals which helped the Gunners move into fourth place in the Premier League following a 2-0 home win over Southampton on Sunday.

"Everyone played like we want, and after the match on Thursday, playing today and Wednesday we needed different players because playing this intensity is not easy, and the performance like we want we need everybody", Emery said, quoted by Sky Sports.

"It was tough, especially in the first half", said Romeu.

"I'm very happy because the players worked a lot, and we decided to make some changes to bring in new players, to keep up the energy". The midfielder struck a low shot that was turned in from close range by Lacazette, leading to another pause - this time by the Southampton players who were looking for an offside flag that rightfully never came.

Southampton could have levelled but Stuart Armstrong's header was blocked by Sead Kolasinac before Leno palmed away Matt Targett's shot.

His deflected ball found a way through to Mkhitaryan who doubled the lead with an unerring finish. The Gunners should have increased their lead, with Lacazette the most guilty as he squandered a host of good chances - none more so than when he blazed high and wide from six yards. Here are the player ratings from the 5-1 win.

"The most important thing is to be focused and to be ready for every game because we are not going to think we are in top four and nothing will change".
