On the 1-0 win…
We're very pleased. Especially tonight, we've had some changes, some players coming in, they’ve come into the system and they've adapted well. Overall really pleased.

On two half-time substitutes…
I was informed by Pat Rice that they had to come off at half time. I don't know the reasoning but we'll find out tomorrow.

On Stoke's style of play…
I think if you play Stoke it's going to be a different kind of game, I thought overall we adapted well. We've always got to try and impose our game on Stoke as well. A couple times there were a few shouts of 'get it down and play' but I think they've shown good character today.

On Rhys Murphy…
I'm really pleased for Rhys. He's had a couple of nasty injuries and he's worked ever so hard and he's now starting to come back to the player he was before he got the injuries.

On three clean sheets…
The lads have just been talking about that. It's testament to the work we've done, right the way down through the academy. It’s all led by the manager [Arsène Wenger] and we just take it on from him, so it’s good to have that.

On the lads out on loan…
They're all doing well, all playing regularly and getting first-team experience.
