The Villarreal manager underlined that the team put in a very complete performance against SD Eibar

Villarreal manager Unai Emery appeared in front of the press to analyse the Yellows' first win of the season (2-1). The Basque coach underlined the Submarine's ability to react despite going behind on the scoreboard: "Our reaction to Eibar's goal was very important. We also had a good response against Huesca. It was a tough test where we had chances and even goals ruled out by VAR. That's a sign that we're doing things well, but we need to peak in the final third."

Despite the good feelings and the win, Emery recognises that the team can still improve: "We played well enough to win and gain confidence but there are aspects of our game where we need to continue to grow. In defence, there are situations which we need to work on and stop from happening. In attack, we want to continue showing the playing style we want to impose."

Finally, Emery hailed Gerard Moreno's importance, with the striker getting a goal and an assist in the win: "He's a player that breathes Villarreal. Last season he scored 18 goals in LaLiga and he's having a great start to this season. He's a very important player for us."
