Mertesacker – Arsenal were under pressure but still confident

The Gunners may have had to wait until the dying minutes to wrest all three points of Southampton last night, but our vice-captain says that the team believed they going to win in the end. After being asked if he thought it was a frustrating evening, Per exclaimed: “Not at all, we just kept going and we always believed in ourselves and it paid off completely. They were one man down, we were a bit lucky because they had an injured player but we kept going and we deserved it in the end because we never gave up.”

“We showed great spirit again. We needed that win desperately tonight because everyone won yesterday so we were a bit under pressure but I think we did well.

“We want to continue this run and be more consistent than what we have shown this season – that’s our target. In the Christmas period it’s going to be busy but we’re up for it.

“We dropped a few points and now it’s up to us to cope with the situation. Everyone knows we have potential and now we have to show it.”

Considering the games are coming thick and fast, and with the injuries making rotation practically impossible, we have to pleased with three wins in a row. There will be a lot more pressure in the weeks ahead so it is good to know that the team can handle it!
