Arsenal news: Malcom Barcelona transfer latest as Unai Emery eyes reinforcements

They edged past Villarreal 2-0 last weekend.

Speaking after the clash, Erenesto Valverde said: “It was a crucial and difficult game.

“We had to face a great team on a pitch where it’s difficult to get points.

“They gave us a tough game, with problems in circulating the ball and danger on the counter-attack.

“We’ve kept up the winning run. We knew our rivals had won but we’re always relying on ourselves.

“Regardless of rivals having won, before a game, you have to win. You prepare to win and that’s that.

“If your rivals win, you have more pressure and you deal with that.

“After drawing at home [against Celta Vigo], we wanted to refocus with a victory.”
