Arsene Wenger was pleased with Arsenal’s convincing victory over Reading at the weekend, but he believes his team could have scored more goals.

Gervinho, Santi Cazorla, Olivier Giroud and Mikel Arteta were all on target as Wenger’s men secured their third consecutive Premier League win with an entertaining performance at Emirates Stadium.

The 16 goals scored by Arsenal against Reading this season is a Club record against one opponent, but Wenger feels that figure could have been even higher.

"The confidence looks to be there, and you could see when the confidence is there, we can play quality football"

“We had a good performance,” he told Arsenal Player. “We were technically sound and had a good balance between mastering the possession and being incisive.

“The only regret we had at half-time is that we didn't score the chances we created and that we didn't get the penalty we deserved, but we scored the second goal straight after coming out for the second half and then it was quite comfortable.

“I'm very happy because it keeps our momentum going. The confidence looks to be there, and you could see when the confidence is there, we can play quality football.

“We have one target, to win our games. You cannot always look around you and see what the other teams do. Just play well and win your games. The best way to win games is to play well.

‘Let's keep that spirit, that attitude, that confidence, and we have a great chance. We want to do it and I'm confident we will.”
