Mathieu Flamini has praised Arsenal’s maturity and believes the team are showing a real collective desire for success this season.

The Gunners maintained the place at the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 win against Fulham at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

"The team is very mature, very strong and we showed great character because we pushed and pushed during the whole game and got the goals in the second half"

But it was far from easy, as they had to wait until the second half before Santi Cazorla’s brace sealed the three points.

“We were strong defensively and we have a lot of quality offensively,” Flamini told Arsenal Player.

“The team is very mature, very strong and we showed great character because we pushed and pushed during the whole game and got the goals in the second half.

“It is very important to be defensively strong and stay balanced because at the end of the year, the teams who have the possibility to win things are the teams who are strong defensively.

“[The victory] was a collective effort, we defended well together and attacked very well together, so it was a great performance from the whole team.”
