Arsenal Players Showed What They're Made Of Claims Arsene Wenger


Monreal poked in his first league goal since March 2013 and Alex Iwobi was set up by Alexis Sanchez's back-heel to double Arsenal's lead at the start of the second half.

Nigerian global Alex Iwobi doubled the hosts lead by crashing an effort into the net following a sensational back-heeled pass from Alexis Sanchez to seal the three points for the Gunners and send them into this worldwide break in positive spirits.

But Wenger, who was celebrating his 21st year at the club, admitted afterwards that his side could have been more clinical.

The Nigerian worldwide, who was a major doubt for the Gunners clash, finished off a backheeled assist from Alexis Sanchez in the 56th minute after Nacho Monreal had shot Arsenal into the lead in the 16th minute.

Since capping a turbulent August with a awful 4-0 loss at Liverpool, Arsenal have since won six and drawn at Chelsea.

Arsenal's sixth win from their last seven matches in all competitions moved them to within six points of leaders Manchester City heading into the global break.
