“It was hard like we expected it would be. We suffered a lot. It’s difficult to play against Arsenal and Mikel [Arteta]. That’s why I give the players incredible credit for this victory.

“Mikel knows everything. He’s so good. It’s not because he’s my friend. He’s so clever. I learn a lot watching his teams. Today I learned something that I can use in the future. He knows everything about football.

“People look at our run of wins and think it’s so easy. I didn’t expect it. I’m more than grateful for these players for what they’re doing, but winning these games 1-0 is what we need to do.

“The last 10-15 minutes was brilliant. We didn’t push the action. The action came through the passes and movements in the right tempo.

“At half-time, we adjusted our pressing and won a lot of balls. In the first half, we could not. The second half was better. We didn’t create chances but enough to win the game.”
