Arsene Wenger on the reasons Arsenal won at Aston Villa


Arsene Wenger spoke to the media following his sides 4-2 victory over Aston Villa in Birmingham this afternoon.

Here is what the Arsenal manager had to say:

On the mental stregth of his players, Wenger said: 
"At 2-0, at half-time, you could feel amongst the players that what happened last week (against Tottenham) had an impact in their head.
"When Villa came back to 2-1, it was in interesting test for my team.
"We could have crumbled or we could score again - and we did the latter. We got a good mental response."

On his team's attitude, Wenger said:
"This team is very interesting because they are on the same wavelength in the way they want to play.
"But they also fight for each other. I thought we had played well against Tottenham, had a lot of possession against Braga and we responded well again today."



On the performance at Villa Park, Wenger said:
"You do not always lose when you dominate games and we played well.
"Villa had a good comeback in the second half but we managed to find the response to come out on top."

On being able to cope without captain Cesc Fabregas, Wenger said: 
"Cesc is a special talent and ideally we would have wanted him to be out there but I was confident before the game.
"No matter who plays, I feel we can produce good team play."
