Arsene Wenger: "We did it with style and steel"

User Rating: / 3

For just the 6th time in his last 27 meetings with Chelsea, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was the man wearing a smile on his face in his post match interactions with the press.

And Wenger wasted little time showering praise on his team after the Gunners thrashed Chelsea 3-0 at the Emirates to reclaim third place in the Premier League standings and stay within 5 points of perfect Manchester City.


Theo Walcott: "We are all working for each other"

Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott got on the scoresheet for the Gunners for the second game running as Arsenal beat Chelsea 3-0 at the Emirates to register their first win over their London rivals in 5 years. That last win was a 5-3 comeback at Stamford Bridge with Walcott also scoring a memorable goal on the day, though his effort was overshadowed by Robin van Persie's hat-trick.

Speaking to the press after today's game Walcott said, "We worked really hard in the week. We know what has happened in the past but it is all about now. The guys did really well today. It has been quietly coming. We are all working for each other. Everyone is focused."


Wenger redeemed as Arsenal smash Chelsea 3-0

It has been six years in the making, but Arsenal finally fulfilled long standing Manager Arsene Wenger's wish for some retribution for humiliating defeats that they have suffered at the hands of Chelsea in recent years, beating the Blues 3-0 today at the Emirates with Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil grabbing a goal each.

After having made wholesale changes in midweek for the League Cup tie away to Nottingham Forest, Arsenal reverted to the same eleven players who started last weekend at Hull City with Alexis Sanchez back to lead the line, with Lucas Perez and Granit Xhaka forced to take a place on the bench despite their excellent form in midweek.


Jurgen Klopp: I was angry we conceded

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was predictably upbeat after watching his side dismantle 10-man Hull City at Anfield, destroying the Tigers 5-1 with the help of a couple of penalties.

Speaking to the press after the game, Klopp shared, "It was a brilliant amazing first half in all aspects. It was a world-class performance in counter pressing. We didn't give Hull the opportunity to create confidence. It was wonderful to watch. All in all, really good."


James Milner: "There's talent all over the field and we work for each other"

James Milner grabbed himself a brace from the penalty spot as Liverpool thrashed 10-man Hull City 5-1 at Anfield to continue their imperious charge up the Premier League table.

Milner spoke to the press after the game, and the newly converted Liverpool left-back said, "I thought it was a good display from start to finish. Even with a lead we kept pushing on. We were good without the ball, chasing and winning it back."


Manchester City make it a Perfect 10 under Pep

Manchester City continue to be in unstoppable form this season, picking up their 10th straight win of the season under new Manager Pep Guardiola, beating Swansea City for the second time in four days at the Liberty Stadium.

Today's win though was anything but straight forward with Swansea matching their illustrious visitors for large periods of the contest, and in the end losing out to a controversial penalty decision that tilted the match Manchester City's way.


Manchester United turn on the style against Leicester

Manchester United returned to their winning ways in emphatic fashion after four first-half goals saw them beating champions Leicester City 4-1 in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Defender Chris Smalling headed United into a 22nd-minute lead following a Daley Blind corner, before Juan Mata doubled the Reds' tally on 37 minutes at the Old Trafford stadium.
