    UNAI EMERY has urged Arsenal fans to back not blast skipper Granit Xhaka and other under-fire Gunners.

    After the Switzerland midfielder was taken off to ironic cheers during ten-man Arsenal's 3-2 comeback win over Aston Villa, boss Emery said: “We need our supporters and we need our supporters helping each player.

    “I changed him because he played 90 minutes on Thursday. I preferred a fresh player.

    “But for me he is a very important player for us.

    “He has a big commitment here. I am sure he is going to achieve the best things.

    “He knows sometimes we are criticised. We need to be mature and continue working. I am going to support him. He's a good player.”

    ARSENAL scorer Calum Chambers blamed himself for an Aston Villa goal – but saluted Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang's “quality” in sealing the Gunners' 3-2 comeback win.

    Defender Chambers said: “We stuck in there and worked hard and deserved it in the end.

    “The win is massive for us as a club and team. We have the quality and the spirit.

    “I hold my hand up to their second goal so I had to put things right.”

    And of red-hot Aubameyang, who has now hit 16 goals in 16 games, Chambers said: “He is a quality striker.

    “A lot of the players in this team have quality but to have him scoring goals is great for us.’”

    And three minutes later Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang smashed home a brilliant free-kick .
