Emery: 'Win for our supporters'

Find out what the Paris camp had to say after the capital club's 2-1 home win over Lyon at the Parc des Princes on Sunday:

 

Unai Emery (Paris Saint-Germain coach)
"Every home match is special and we always want to win for our supporters. After a tough start, when Lyon pushed hard and got the opening goal, we fought back well and went in search of the win, against a form side. Monaco are setting a very strong pace at the top of the standings, so it was important to win. We are still fighting in Ligue 1, the Coupe de la Ligue and the Coupe de France. Since the winter break, we have won 16 of 19 matches, drawn two and lost one, against Barcelona. But we will talk about that match all season. We have shown that that was just an accident and that the team is playing well."

Javier Pastore (Paris Saint-Germain midfielder)
"I played in a position that I really enjoy, behind the three attackers. I felt really good out there. It was a good win. We can't afford to make any mistakes for the remainder of the season. We know that other teams try to attack Monaco, so it's normal that they're scoring a lot of goals. We also need to win all of our remaining matches to try and win the title. I feel a lot of responsibility because I haven't played a lot this season. I do my best to help the team, t make the difference."

Adrien Rabiot (Paris Saint-Germain midfielder)
"They made a good start. We made a few mistakes and lost the ball a bit. We came back strongly in the second half. A lot of people were disappointed with the Barcelona match, us first and foremost. But we still have matches to play this season and we are still fighting in other competitions. We need the fans. If we are still undefeated at home this season, it's also thanks to them. We have been eliminated from the Champions League, which was one of our objectives, but the priority remains Ligue 1.It's going to be tight all the way. We're in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue which is a great trophy and we're still in the hunt for the Coupe de France. We will need everyone."
