After watching his side produce an electric performance to see off Liverpool at Emirates Stadium, Mikel Arteta said his team were good value for the win.
We twice took the lead, and twice were pegged back by the visitors, but we would not be denied on a memorable evening at the Emirates, roaring back to take all three points, and stay on top of the Premier League table after nine games played.
“I’m really happy, really proud of the team and really satisfied with the way we played,” the boss said afterwards.
“We showed real desire, composure, quality and courage to play and win the game the way we won it.
“Physically what we have done, and what the players have produced individually was phenomenal. There’s not another way. Against Liverpool you have to match or be better than them at that.”
Arteta also thanked the Emirates faithful, who once again created a rocking atmosphere inside the stadium.
“It’s great, honesty thank you so much to everybody. The way they generate that energy, that togetherness with the team. They are living the game with us. Some days to watch the game and sometimes to live the game with us. They are in every ball, in every action and it’s just magnificent.”
