International break can't come soon enough.Emery:
We tried [to make chances], but they are a very competitive, organised team.
“It was important for us to be strong defensively, we did that. Yes, 1-1, but we were better.
“Offensively, this team [Vitoria] is very organised and it’s not easy to have a lot of chance.”
No. Against peak Benfica or Porto maybe. Against a team which rarely troubles the Portuguese top six and has only ever won one game against English opposition (1-0 at home to Aston Villa in 1983) a draw is not a good result. Except it was a good result on the night because within the first half hour they'd already hit the post and forced Emiliano to make two very good saves.Haven't seen a thing but apparently we did well again. Away in Portugal, is that what we call a decent point?
