Gatting on win, pressing and Youth Cup

Mike Gatting

Steve Gatting spoke to Arsenal.com after his side beat Manchester City 4-3 on Monday evening.

Here's a transcript of what he had to say:

on getting a performance and a result…It was a rollercoaster game. There were chances at both ends. It was about the team that was going to take their chances and we managed to do that. We've performed well in the last two games, especially with the ball.

on pressing Man City…At times we did. We knew they would play out from the back and take some chances. It was just about identifying when to press and when not to press. In the first half we created our better chances from winning the ball off them in their own third.

on how much confidence this win will give the team…It's just nice to win whoever you play against and come away with a good performance. It will take us into the Leicester game here with a bit of confidence.

on the Youth Cup semi-finals…It's a big game for the boys, playing against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and the Emirates. We tried to keep the big players out from tonight's game. We played a few of the under-18s tonight and they gave their all.
