“After what happened a few days ago, we’re so pleased to win the game. If you want to be at the top you have to win games in many different ways.

“It was absolutely bouncing [in the dressing room], it was a big effort to play less than 72 hours after result we had. I’m really pleased with the boys”

Arsenal will now face Liecester City in their next game on February 25.
