“We were in control for the 90 minutes buta bit one-paced in the first half with our passing,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Arsenal.com

“In the second half when we got up a gear we scored the goals. Santi got two good goals and from then on we looked like we would get the points. We had a few more chances but overall in games against teams who fight not to go down, it is very difficult. Sometimes it is a question of patience.”

He added: “I am happy with the performance of my team because we have been remarkably consistent.

“let’s not forget that we had a difficult start and we have shown all kind of ingredients technically, but as well mentally to respond to what happened to us at the start of the season. It was not easy and we played two more games in the Champions League as well.”

Newcastle United defeated West Ham United 3-1 to pile further pressure on the Hammers’ manager Sam Allardyce at Upton Park, while Liverpool came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at home against Aston Villa.

In other EPL scores, Sunderland also came from two goals down to end 2-2 with Southampton, while Norwich City made Hull City paid for missing several early chances by edging them 1-0 at Carrow Road.
