Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has said his side’s victory against London rivals Chelsea was a big win for them.

Arsenal won the game 1-0 thanks to a strike by Gabriel Magalhaes in the English Premier League game at Stamford Bridge.

The win returned Arsenal to the top of the EPL and was another major one after wins against Tottenham and Liverpool at home earlier this season.

“Big win for us, another step as a team. To come here against a top team and perform and actually win will give the boys even more belief,” Arteta said.

“We are a really young team but we showed a lot of composure and courage to play in this stadium. I was really impressed.

“We were under pressure to go back to the top and what we did today was just phenomenal.”

Arsenal getting better, says Arteta

Asked if he believes Arsenal can maintain their challenge, Arteta said: “Look at what Manchester City have done for the last six years. We have to be very respectful of that.

“We are getting better. We are in contention so let’s enjoy that tonight. It’s going to be a long marathon.”

Arsenal were better, says Potter

Speaking about the game, Chelsea manager, Graham Potter, said Arsenal were the better team on the day.

“We are not in a fantastic moment. We are not fluid in how we build our attacks. It was a huffing-and-puffing performance from us without the real quality that we need,” Potter said.

“Arsenal were the better team and deserved to win. We played against a team in a really good moment, a confident team.

“They have been working together for three years and you can see the understanding. We are at the start of our process.”
