Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed the catalyst behind the comeback win over hosts West Ham United in their London Derby clash in the Premier League.
Aubameyang and his Arsenal teammates had to come from behind to take the three points at stake after the halftime interval.
In his post-match reaction to the win over the Hammers, Aubameyang credited interim manager Freddie Ljungberg for the turnaround against their fellow London side.
According to the Gabonese international star, Freddie Ljungberg told them to increase the tempo of the game during the halftime interval and that played a crucial role in the outcome of the match as the Gunners came from behind to beat the Hammers 3-1 away from home.

Nigerian-born Italian international Angelo Ogbonna had given the home team a first-half lead before the Gunners roared back in the second half with three goals in nine minutes through the likes of Gabriel Martinelli, Nicholas Pepe, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Young Brazilian attacker Martinelli rewarded the faith in him by Freddie Ljungberg as he scored the all-important equalizer for his team.
Pepe had not scored from open play until the West Ham game and the Ivorian international was responsible for the second goal before Aubameyang sealed the three points for Arsenal with his 11th Premier League goal of the season and that was the first win for Arsenal after nine matches without a single victory in all competitions.
