Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta told Match of the Day of the match: “It was a hard-fought victory at a really tough place.

“You have to be ready for a fight. In the first half we had some really good periods when we were really dominant and should have scored more goals. In the second half we gave the ball away cheaply too many times.

“There are players who weren’t at their best playing in this type game, but they tried their best and won. I’m very proud of them defensively and I’m really pleased with the win.

“It’s two wins in a row, two clean sheets. Let’s go again. We have a lot to catch up!”
