Mikel Arteta saw his side cruise to our biggest Premier League victory of the season, and believes the winning margin could have been even greater.
Alexandre Lacazette got the ball rolling, finishing a flowing 16-pass move for the opening goal, and from then on we were in control – scoring two more without reply and hitting the woodwork twice as well.
“I’m really happy,” the boss said to Arsenal Media at the final whistle. “After a nervy start in the first 15, 20 minutes, we started to get control and scored a wonderful goal. That that builds confidence in the team and then we started to play the way we wanted.
“We dominated the game, we scored three really good goals, we probably could have scored more as well. I’m really happy because we had some big performances as well.”
Arteta said he enjoyed the opening goal, but was just as pleased with the variety of our strikes.
“We have to score goals in many different ways it cannot always be like that (first goal) and today we’ve done it in three different ways. We looked much more of a threat, we were attacking more vertically and I’m really happy.”
