Arsenal managed to get a win against Fulham after heading into halftime tied at zero. A couple of goals in the second half from Santi Cazorla gave Arsenal the win, and aside from him manager Arsene Wenger praised the Arsenal defense as well.
“Defensively we did really well today,” Wenger said, via Sky Sports. “We were one paced in first half and then Cazorla delivered two excellent goals and everyone is happy. In the second period it appeared to be a matter of time.
“Santi has missed a large part of the season but he is free from pain in his ankle now and we are seeing what a great player he is.
“Stability though is vital and we have to be patient going forward and that is why I believe our defenders deserve credit.”
The win keeps Arsenal atop the table for at least one more week. Manchester City won as well to stay right behind them in the table.
