Before the game I would had been really happy if someone had told me that we were to get anything from the game against Arsenal. Imagine my joy when we managed to win the game!
The game had two different periods for Arsenal. In the first 30 minutes they showed how good team they are. They had it all and perhaps if they were a bit more lucky they would had managed to convert their chances to goals. We played very well as well and after the first 30 minutes we managed to keep them away from our box and create our own chances. When Arsenal had to face this pressure they suddenly starting having severe problems at all lines. I believe this is their major drawback, discipline and focus during their game. They did not seem to be very patient and obviously that took some pressure from the defense.
It was a great result from all points of view. First of all it brought us to the top of the table and at the same time we managed to prevent Arsenal from reaching it. Still what I believe it was also very important is that we managed to beat the best team in the Premier League, away, that being London! I hope this means that everyone will now stop counting the days since the last time we won a game in the Capital. We have to leave the past and focus only on our future.
