His side had the better of the first 50 minutes of the game, but a quick-fire double from Alexandre Lacazette and Aubameyang before the hour ended up downing the visitors.
Arsenal counter-attacked up the pitch before the striker received the ball in an offside position from a flick-on and then scored. Assistant referee Harry Lennard failed to raise his flag.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was in an offside position when he received the ball from Ramsey
Silva was not happy with the decision. He said: ‘It’s really frustrating. We have in that moment just one player in our box. It’s too clear to the assistant.
‘It was a counter-attack, we won the ball and after we lost it too quickly and one pass, and it’s two against one or three against one.
‘We have just Jonjoe Kenny inside the box. It’s clear where he is in that moment and it’s clear on the second touch [by Aaron Ramsey] where the player who finishes is, as well. He’s clearly offside.
‘For me, it’s a little bit strange but it’s OK. I make mistakes, my players as well. The assistant referees can make them, as well.
‘We were in control of the game in that moment, they scored a great goal but we’ll fight until the end. We’ll try to fight to score the one-one for sure. That moment was really hard for us.’

Silva admitted he hoped VAR, which would have spotted the error, would be implemented in the Premier League for next season: ‘The people in command have to take the decision. If they didn’t take before, because they talked in that moment it wasn’t the best moment to do.
‘They’re trying to find the best way to do that in the future, as soon as possible. Maybe next season we’ll have VAR here.’
The momentum of the game swung in Arsenal’s favour through Lacazette’s 56th minute strike. Manager Unai Emery prepared a substitution before the goal and after the match he hinted the French striker was going to be taken off.
Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring at the Emirates with an emphatic strike on Sunday
‘We need change in this moment on the pitch. Another individual quality, another individual pushing,’ he said.
Asked again whether it was Lacazette who would have been hooked, he laughed and nodded.
Emery also praised on Petr Cech, who made a series of important saves: ‘The performance was what you want today. He showed us he is very well and continuing with his work.’
