Wenger elated with win over Merseysiders
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has expressed his delight over the Gunners notching up a convincing victory over Liverpool but added that there’s still a long way to go in the season. The Frenchman told arsenal.com: “I am always confident, but of course there is a long way to go. Today was an important win for the team, for the club, and overall nobody would dispute that we deserved to win this game. It was vital to win, I said that before the game and I don't change my mind, because had we not won people would say 'yes, Arsenal at home they cannot win the big games'. It is done, in a convincing way. We had a good solidarity, a good focus, and I believe we have plenty of other big games coming up and this will help us deal well with them.”
We deserved to lose – Mourinho
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that his side did not play up to the mark and deserved to lose against Newcastle United. The Portuguese told BT Sport: "I didn't like it. I think we deserved to lose. We had a couple of good chances to score the equaliser but they were in the game more than us, they fought more than us and they were much more committed than us. They were the best team on the pitch, if someone had to win, I think it was Newcastle not us."
