Francis Coquelin feels Arsenal have proved their critics wrong with their 3-0 win against Manchester United on Sunday.
The midfielder played a vital role in midfield to ensure the Gunners’ claimed all three Premier League points.
Coquelin believes the win will improve the team's confidence in the coming months.
“I think it is a very good performance against a big team,” he said. “I think everyone expected us not to win today and maybe we proved a lot of people wrong. I think inside the dressing room we knew we could do good things this season.
“We said it from the beginning of the season that we could be contenders but we have to be consistent. I think the most difficult thing now is to carry on getting the results.
“In the last three games we haven’t lost against Manchester United. Slowly we are getting stronger against the big teams.
“We beat Manchester City last season and now Manchester United so I think it is all about consistency. They made this game tough and the small teams are really strong as well and we need to get a result every week.
“I think overall it was a good performance from us and we would like to do that again in the coming weeks.”
