Nicklas Bendtner believes the changes Arsène Wenger made for the 2-0 win over Hull City didn't affect Arsenal's performance.
The Danish striker scored his first goal for the Gunners since March 2011
with a close-range header from Carl Jenkinson's pinpoint cross in the second minute.
Bendtner was delighted to take his chance and praised the other players who
came into the side.
It's been difficult for the players who have not been in the team because we have had such a great formNicklas Bendtner
"It was a fantastic feeling," Bendtner told Arsenal Player. "I think my celebration showed that.
"It was a fantastic cross. I just said to him 'Carl if you get chance put it to the back post' and it happened to be on the first ball so it was quite funny. We had a little laugh about that.
"It was my first Premier League game this season - so I was very pleased that we won and I was very pleased with scoring in my first game.
"It's been difficult for the players who have not been in the team because we have had such a great form and the players who have played have been magnificent. This way we play now, it looks like everyone who comes in takes it in his stride and goes with it. There were some changes but everyone did really well.
"I thought at times they [Hull] looked a little bit dangerous," Bendtner added. "But I thought we had the game under control. We showed some good play, at times a little bit too much, but it was solid win, a great performance and we got the three points."Copyright 2014 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
