Day 7 in Premier League – Arsenal and Liverpool leading, Tottenham sink. Reactions for the coaches and players:

West Bromwich 1-1 Arsenal

Coach Arsene Wenger:  on whether he was pleased with a point…

Pleased? No because I want to win but if you ask me if it was a fair point over the 90 minutes I would say yes. Why? Because we were 1-0 down just before half-time and straight after half-time Anelka misses a chance for 2-0 and that would have made it difficult.

Norwich 1-3 Chelsea

Coach Jose Mourinho on his susbstitues

“If the substitutes come in and they change the game, the manager did very well. If they come in and they make it worse, the manager made a very bad decision. In the end I always think it is their responsibility’.  ‘The situation became difficult at 1-1. We all knew that a point here would be a bad result for us. The whole team, not just the boys that came on, and they coped well with that pressure.

Manchester City 3-1 Everton

Coach Pellegrini on the win

“We played the only unbeaten team in the league and they played very well with the ball so it wasn’t an easy match today. “Last Wednesday had a mental and physical consequence, so I’m very pleased with the character we showed today.”

Sunderland 1-2 Manchester United

Coach Moyes on Januzaj

‘I remember giving Wayne Rooney and Ross Barkley their debuts and Adnan is certainly in that quality. Starting Adnan certainly wasn’t a gamble for me. I see Adnan in training every day, I saw him on tour and actually he’s even got better since coming back from the tour. I would have probably put him in the team three or four weeks ago. There were a couple of games when I was going to start him. I just felt that until we got a bit of momentum into our play, I thought we had to wait’.
