Wenger A Happy Man

Arsene Wenger had every right to be a happy man after Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-0 on Saturday in the English Premier League.

His Arsenal team are now clear at the top of the table, and Wenger was equally pleased with the way his team had performed in the win.

Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey scored the goals at the Emirates stadium, and with London rivals Chelsea losing to Newcastle, the Gunners are now five points clear of Chelsea and Liverpool, who are second and third respectively.

"We needed to respond today, because after the Chelsea game, it was important to convince people that we can win these big games; and to win it in a convincing way is even more important," Wenger told reporters.

"I am always confident, but of course there is a long way to go. Today it was an important win for the team and the club, nobody would dispute we deserved to win this game.

"It was vital to win, I said it before the game, had we not won today, people would say Arsenal cannot win at home the big games, it was done in a convincing way, with good solidarity and good focus."
