Arsene Wenger had to wait until the 87th minute before Arsenal finally managed to put Man City to bed, but he felt it was only what Arsenal deserved after their consistent domination of the possession against Roberto Mancini’s team.
Wenger was certainly pleased when Arteta scored the winner. “It was a very well-taken goal.” he said. “I think it gave us three points that we deserved because we had a consistent domination in the game. I think we had over 60 per cent possession. They had one or two good periods, Man City, but overall after 10 minutes in the second half it was all us.
