“It was very important,” he told Sky Sports. “The players showed great character in the last game and today was the same.

“We worked very hard and created three or four very good chances in the second half.

“You could see the belief and everyone was trying to go forward and trying to defend also.” ( video here)


Arsenal 4- 2 Bolton

Arsenal came from two goals down to beat Bolton 4-2 at the Emirates Stadium to go top of the Premier League table tonight.
Bolton went into a 2-0 lead within 30 minutes Cahill with a volley and Matthew Taylor penalty gave Bolton the unexpected lead.But Arsenal stormed back with goals from Tomas Rosicky, Cesc Fabregas, Thomas Vermaelen and Andrei Arshavin struck back to give the Gunners the margin they needed to go top.
Arshavin’s goal took the Gunners above Chelsea on goal difference, albeit having now played a match more – but nevertheless a scenario which looked so unlikely following a resounding 3-0 home defeat by the Blues at the end of November, which left Arsenal some 11 points adrift.
Wenger told Sky Sports that it was a performance where his side needed to give absolutely everything after finding themselves two-nil down.

“I believe we had plenty of chances and fantastic spirit and I believe this team will never give up because I know that and they have shown that again tonight.”( video here)
