Walcott leads Arsenal to convincing win
Champions League day 2: Arsenal 2-0 Basel
Arsenal leads the group tied with PSG and 4 points after two games. Certainly the Gunners are in good form as shown during recent matches.
Coach reacts on the victory:
“I would like to congratulate my team for the quality of what they produced tonight. My only regret is that we didn’t take enough of the chances that we created. It’s a good basis to have a taste for more. We eased off a bit in the second half and we couldn’t score the third goal. We still had plenty of chances but it’s tough to maintain that pace, accuracy in the passing and speed in the game over 90 minutes. The first half was top, top quality like what we produced against Chelsea.
It’s down to hard work of course, but also belief and belief comes with the last results. The confidence comes with the last result. We were a bit edgy at home for a few games but now it looks like we are playing with full pace and power. Now it’s down to us to continue to improve. I think we can do better and that will be down to our humility. We’ll start again tomorrow morning and then focus on our next game”.
