Arsene Wenger admitted that the team was slightly lucky to win against Alan Pardew’s side.
However, in what was a horrendous pitch which seemed a tactic from the home side to stop us playing our football, the game became a battle and that is exactly what the team did.
We are surely favourites now to claim that third place spot in the Premier League and automatic qualification for next season’s Champions League group stage.
