"As a play maker, he has some very good qualities, but are we talking about the form of the player or the name and reputation of Ozil?"

Asked about what was said at half-time, Torreira told ESPN: '[Emery told us] to be calm, to continue playing because there were 45 more minutes left, that we keep attacking because obviously in the second half we were going to find more spaces.

Tottenham was reduced to 10 men when Jan Vertonghen received a second yellow for an ugly kickout challenge at Lacazette in the 85th minute.

'In fact, it happened and we scored the goals at key moments.

"Torreira is incredible", he said.

"I felt we needed something different on the pitch". It is hard to tell whether they were left tired after their recent run of games or if the occasion simply got the better of them, but they just weren't on it.

'For example, our meeting today finished with a speech from Laurent Koscielny, for one minute, which gave us the will to win'.

"It takes time to get over something like that because we are not talking about football any more".

Torreira has settled into life in North London after being eased into the starting lineup upon arriving from Sampdoria in the summer, producing arguably his best all-round display yet against Arsenal's arch-rivals. I am glad I played my part and we can all go home happy tonight. "We don't give up and that's the mentality", Aubameyang said.

"Now the game against Manchester [United] is coming". Wednesday is a good example for us, we need to think about Manchester on Wednesday. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stepped up and duly tucked the spot kick away for his ninth league goal of the season. We are playing in several competitions and we are doing it in the best possible way. "They are going to play at home, with a lot of fans and we know that all the matches in this championship are different and very hard".

"We know it's very hard in Manchester, in history and in present".
