It wasn’t the most beautiful goal the Gunners have ever scored, but it was enough to give them another win, finally a second consecutive victory in the Premier League, something they hadn’t succeeded since January.
Leicester were hard to break down, but we were patient and did not give away any chances. We created some dangerous chances. We had to give everything on Sunday afternoon [in the FA Cup semifinal against manchester City], playing extra time
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told Sky Sports, minutes after the final whistle at Emirates, having seen Nacho Monreal shoot the ball four minutes from time, with the ball getting deflected on Robert Huth, and somehow finding its way to the net.
Every win gives you a little more momentum
the Frenchman added. As for whom he would like to see win in the Manchester derby;
I don’t have a preference, we don’t have to look much at the others. We just have to look after ourselves. The target is clear for us
Wenger said. Arsenal are four points below fourth-placed Manchester City, still hoping for a top four finish, no matter how difficult that looks, since there is also fifth-placed Manchester United eyeing that precious fourth place.
