Mikel Arteta applauds fans after the match

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta speaking to TNT Sports: "For sure, I'm really happy with the performance from the team. They showed the aggression and commitment. Even when we lost the ball we were incredibly good to get it back. It's hard in Europe to control it how we did.

"That's why we won it. When you let them get set in your own half they are a dangerous team. We only allowed one shot in the 97th minute.

"Takehiro Tomiyasu was feeling something so we didn't want to take a risk. Bukayo Saka, it's a knock.

"The way we played in Newcastle I was really happy with so it was more about winning [this time]. I'm really happy."
