Arsenal completed a wonderful comeback tonight, as the Gunners were 1-0 down at half-time, but managed to climb back up for a 3-1 win.

This was also Freddie Ljungberg’s first win at the helm of Arsenal.

The difference between two halves for the Gunners was glaringly obvious.

However, Aubameyang praises Ljungberg and his instructions at the break.

“We feel good. I think we played well in the second half so we are happy to win this game.

“We tried to put some tempo in the game and to play fast and find spaces, and we did that.

“At half-time, Freddie [Ljunberg] told us to play with a higher tempo. It was tough but we have the quality in the squad, and if we believe in ourselves, we can go forward and win games.

“We will take this second half as an example for the rest of the season,” he said after the match, as quoted by Express.

A big morale boost for the Gunners, this wins puts them at the ninth position in the Premier League.
