Arsene Wenger revels in Arsenal’s ‘perfect week’ following back-to-back wins

first_imgArsene Wenger has reflected on a “perfect week” for Arsenal, after his side followed up Champions League victory over Bayern Munich with three points against Everton to go top of the Premier League table.The Gunners sealed a surprise 2-0 win over the German giants on Tuesday to kick-start their European campaign, and were eager to claim maximum points against the Toffees with title rivals Manchester City facing a tough derby clash with United at Old Trafford on Sunday.First-half goals Olivier Giroud and defender Laurent Koscielny in the space of two minutes looked to have set the Gunners up for a comfortable evening, before Ross Barkley hauled Everton back into the contest with a brilliant solo goal on the stroke of half-time.Both sides had chances to add to the scoreline after the break, with Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Romelu Lukaku all hitting the woodwork, but Arsenal were the more impressive side to seal a 2-1 win over an Everton side which finished the game with ten men after Gareth Barry earned two yellow cards.And while Wenger accepts there is little to read into the league table just yet, things are now starting to come together for the Gunners“It is a perfect week and it is not easy to have that,” said the Arsenal boss.“I believe that we will keep that solidarity, that desire to do well and I think we are well focused to do well and together we have improved on that front and we know that when we have the ball we can create goal chances.“We went to Watford and won 3-0 and beat Bayern Munich 2-0 and beat Everton tonight in one week, it has been a fantastic week. It is not easy.“The only negatives is that we lost some players through in jury during the week, but I will have to rest some players Tuesday night against Sheffield [Wednesday in the League Cup] as I think for some players I think it will be one game too many for them.”Wenger admitted he did not expect Arsenal to be at the head of the table at this stage following their poor start.“I thought after ten games, no, honestly. I thought it would take much longer because Manchester City started with five wins, so it was difficult to envisage that we would come back but we had no choice,” he added.“I’m pleased because we had a very difficult start. After a difficult game against West Ham [a 2-0 defeat at the Emirates on the opening day] nobody would have predicted we would have been at the top after ten gams.“But we are there, that shows we have made some ground up, so let’s keep our togetherness and fight for the future games, that is all we can do.“It is very early in the season but we are happy to be where we are.”last_img read more
