Joel Campbell spoke to the media after Arsenal’s 2-1 win against Manchester City. Below is a transcript of what he said:
on beating Manchester City…There are games that you have to be intelligent. We know the capacity of Manchester City. We could not give them space. We try to close gaps and to counter-attack with our forwards. City are a great opponent but we know that in this league you can lose at any stadium. It's a very competitive league. We did a great job to win against a great opponent.
on Barcelona… There is still enough time to think about the games against Barcelona. Now we have to enjoy the victory [against City] and we'll see how we do against Barcelona.
on the title race…It was a great game, we got a good result and now we have to look forward, there is still a lot of work to do. This is a big step. We are in the fight for the Premier League title. We hope to continue this winning streak. We are closer to the leaders, who are currently Leicester, and we must respect them. They are a great team who have proved a lot this season. We go step-by-step.
on the busy Christmas scheduled… The Christmas period is going to be very competitive. There are four games in 10 days and after winning the first we hope to do the same in the coming three [against Southampton, Bournemouth and Newcastle].
