Wenger - We controlled the game

Arsène Wenger faced the media after our 2-0 win over Manchester United at Emirates Stadium.

The boss discussed the manner of victory, bouncing back and our recent form.

Read on to find out what he said:

on a big win…
We needed to be patient. I felt that going in at half-time at 0-0 we would have a good chance to win the game. We started a bit nervously, a bit under pressure. Slowly I think we became better and in the second half we controlled the game quite well. The first goal was a bit lucky, the second goal was a great goal. I’m happy for Danny as well. When you play centre forward you know you want goals and so it hopefully gives him confidence.

on whether Welbeck was picked because of his record against United…

on responding after the north London derby…
It was important because we lost at Tottenham - that didn’t happen many times. Overall, you play Man United and it’s another big game. We couldn't afford to lose today. In fact, we have recently won at Middlesbrough, we beat Manchester City in the semi-final of the cup, we won against Leicester and today. We had just one blip and I think it was a bit physical. But overall, we look a bit more stable.
