EPL: Emery speaks on Xhaka, Torreira's performance during clash with Liverpool

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has praised midfielder, Granit Xhaka for his outstanding performance during the 1-1 draw with Liverpool at the Emirates.

James Milner put Liverpool in front before a superb finish from Alexander Lacazette snatched a point for Arsenal as they maintained a 14-game unbeaten run.

Lacazette’s strike rewarded Arsenal’s resolute performance against potential title challengers, Liverpool, and Emery was impressed by Xhaka, and his midfield partner,

Lucas Torreira.

“I want, with each player to continue and hope we can do better,” Metro Uk quoted Emery as saying.

“With Xhaka I am happy, because first he’s a very good player, and he has a very good commitment for us.

“He wants to improve, and I think he can improve. We want to continue with him to give him the time to improve.”

He added, “Every player works a lot, and it’s very important for our balance that we have two midfielders like Xhaka and Torreira, because the balance in midfield is also important for our balance in defence and our balance offensively.

“They’re important tactically and also their commitment and their work, running a lot.”

Xhaka’s emergence under Emery has earned the Swiss international lots of praise this season and suggested the 26-year-old can be a success at Arsenal.
