Wenger delighted with Gunners win


Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger was delighted that his side got back to winning ways with a fine 4-2 Premier League success at Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners stormed clear thanks to Andrey Arshavin and Samir Nasri before young Villan Ciaran Clark brought the hosts back into the match.

Former Bordeaux man Marouane Chamakh restored the healthy cushion, but Clark notched his second of the day with 20 minutes remaining.

However, the Londoners secured all three points when Jack Wilshere struck at the death and Wenger was delighted that his side responded in fine style following back-to-back defeats to fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Braga in the Champions League.

"With 2-0 at half-time it happened again, it was quickly back to 2-1, but this time we managed to find the resources to keep scoring goals," he said.

"At the end of the day overall it was a good game and a good performance from us.

"I think it was a very strong performance against a Villa side that is very dangerous and a good team.

Wenger issued his players with a positive message at the interval with the intention of avoiding a repeat of the Tottenham nightmare.

"We said at half-time, let's continue to try to go forward and score goals, but it's not only us who decides.

"Villa had a great response in the second half, they closed us down more and were really under pressure. I feel we are back. We lost two games against Tottenham and away to Braga, so it was important to win."
