The pressing, the precision and the passion.
Lucas Torreira’s first goal in an Arsenal shirt had it all and judging by his celebration, he enjoyed it just as much as we did.
“It’s my first derby for Arsenal and it’s an incredible game,” he told Arsenal.com. “During the week, the fans really showed me how important this game is and it was for us as well.
“It was great that we were able to win to continue our progress in the Premier League, which is one of our objectives. Tottenham are a very good side and they made it hard for us to find space at times, but we showed our spirit and our soul during the game. We’re really pleased and so I am, both with the goal and the win.
“I think it was the goal that put the end to the game, if you like. It was a reward for all the hard work that I’ve been putting in since the very first moment that I joined Arsenal.
“I’ve been working hard to adapt to what is a very intense league. It’s not been a long time, of course, but I think I have adapted. I just want to say thank you to my team-mates, the staff and everyone at the club.”
