Mathieu Flamini spoke to the media following Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth:
on responding…It was good to get back to a victory today. The first half we definitely needed those goals. It was a good team effort and I’m happy for the team and the fans.
on his booking… I was focused on the ball. We went together to compete and I got the ball but it was a good decision from the referee.
on not intending to hurt… Definitely not. We both went for the ball and [the fact is that] we took each other.
on the game against Leicester… Of course it is going to be another big game. First we need to recover because it was a tough game today and we played well. It is is a big game next week and we have to win it.
