Reports are out claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger declared victory over Liverpool as a “great day”.
The Frenchman can look up with his side going second ahead of Manchester City’s trip to Crystal Palace on Monday.
“It was a very great day,” Wenger said. “It was an important game today. We had the chance to make a difference with Liverpool and we took the chance.”
Hector Bellerin stunned Liverpool when he cut inside to open the scoring in the 36th minute, swiftly followed by Mesut Ozil’s free-kick and Alexis Sanchez’s strike, with Olivier Giroud capping the afternoon late on.
“It was a first half of quality on both sides,” Wenger said. “I must say Liverpool played well, it was a start with big intensity. Their keeper kept them in the game and then they had a good chance before we scored but we were focused, clinical, and I think if you look at the table and see the number of goals we score it’s no coincidence.”
