On another clean sheet.
“It’s like scoring goals, as long as you don’t concede everybody defends a bit better as they want to keep the record, and that helps.
“But overall credit to the whole team, they defended well.”
On the performances of Cazorla, Giroud and Podolski
“It’s always a test when you arrive at a club like Arsenal. People have seen many, many, many great players so you have to convince people. They know what makes a good player.
“I think slowly they can convince our fans they are good enough to play for us. Everyone understood Cazorla would not need six months to settle. I am pleased for him, Podolski and Giroud.”
On Abou Diaby
“It is massive for us to have Diaby back. He looks in good shape, and there is more to come from him. He is a fantastic footballer who has had just one problem Let’s hope he gets through the international break well.”
“He is a top player, he plays football the way you would like. It’s just a pleasure to watch him, I must say and we are lucky to have him.”
On the performance
“I am pleased with the quality of our display, offensively and defensively. We were more composed today, and dominated in midfield. I still feel Liverpool is a good team. I am confident we have good potential. It is down to us to build on that and improve.”
