Arsenal manager Unai Emery has suggested to Football.London that he is happy with the point that his team gained on Wednesday.

The Gunners played out a 1-1 draw with Vitoria away from home in the Europa League.

The result means that the North London outfit are at the top of Group F with 10 points from four matches.

 

Arsenal manager Emery has suggested that he is disappointed with the draw, but he is pleased that the Gunners are still on top.

Emery told Football.London: “Disappointed we didn't win but that point was to continue our way we are first in the group.”

Disappointing result?

A draw is not exactly a bad result away from home in Europe, but given the quality of the Arsenal team compared to that of Vitoria, the Gunners should be disappointed that they failed to win in Portugal.

True, the Gunners are still at the top of the group and should progress to the knockout round of the Europa League, but they should be winning games such as these.

Moreover, defensively Arsenal need to improve as well, as they are conceding far too many goals, and that could be a major problem for them this season.
