Arsenal boss Unai Emery pays tribute to his players following Monday's 3-1 win over Leicester City in the Premier League.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has said that his team showed "heart" to come from behind to record a 3-1 win over Leicester City in Monday night's Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.

An own goal from Hector Bellerin saw Leicester take the lead in London, but Mesut Ozil levelled late in the first period before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came off the bench to score twice for the Gunners.

Arsenal have now won their last 10 matches in all competitions - including their last seven in the Premier League - and Emery has paid tribute to his side's performance.

"We won today when we started playing with heart. The first 30 minutes we didn't control the match with the possession and we suffered, but we are happy because this is our progression, our way and we need to re-organise and play with heart," Emery told Sky Sports News.

"Our demands are very high because we need to control matches more than now, but today for example the first 30 minutes we didn't play good but then for 60 minutes the team played with quality, organisation, and heart and the atmosphere with the supporters is very important. This feeling is good and tonight was our best things."

Arsenal have moved above Tottenham Hotspur into fourth spot in the Premier League table, and are now just two points off the summit despite starting the season with back-to-back defeats.
