Arsenal vs Rapid Review 4

on restoring some confidence ahead of the north London derby...

Yes, we have been really consistent in this competition. I think the boys showed a great energy, character and aggression today. Right from the beginning you could feel they were touched from the last defeat and everyone individually played a really good game. In the final third we were really aggressive with the ball, we created many chances, scored four goals and probably should have scored more – and now let’s take that into Sunday, a very special game, we are all looking forward to it, and let’s do it all again.

The win makes it five in five for Mikel Arteta’s side in Europe and pushes them top with 15 points before the North London Derby on Sunday against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur at 4:30 PM {W.A.T}

It doesn’t get better than to hope!
