'It's a massive win... we got what we deserved'

Kieran Tierney was all smiles after the final whistle on Thursday night, moments after we completed a sensational late turnaround to beat Wolves for the second time in a fortnight.

We followed up our 1-0 win at Molineux two weeks ago with a thrilling 2-1 victory on Thursday, moving to within a point of the top four.

It was the first time since November 2018 that Wolves had lost after opening the scoring.

"It's a massive win, massive three points. Coming from behind isn’t easy in this league, especially against a team like Wolves. So we showed character tonight, we showed mentality, and I think we got what we deserved in the end.

"We never gave up for one second. As I say, a few of us believed we were going to get that goal, most of us believed. I think when you've got the belief anything can happen. That showed tonight."

There was talk from the Wolves players after the away game that Arsenal's celebrations were excessive, and Tierney add that the players were well aware of those words. 

"Yeah, we would have been for sure. Obviously everyone knows the comments that were made. So we knew they were going to come out and try to beat us, and get their revenge. But we stood up to that challenge. They had a good start and got the goal they needed and wanted. But after that we controlled most of the game."
