My Arsenal players showed strong qualities in Everton win - Wenger

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was full of praise for his players after they came away from Goodison Park with a 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday. The Gunners got goals through Bacary Sagna and Cesc Fabregas before Everton's Tim Cahill grabbed a late goal to give the home side hope.

But Arsenal fought hard for the win, leaving Wenger to admire his team for a performance of high quality.

"The most important qualities we showed were discipline, commitment, honest desire, 100 per cent focus for 90 minutes," he said.

"That got us the three points - if you come here without that you don't get the three points.

"We've had two difficult away games, Wolves and here, but we have got six points and that puts us in a good situation. The team has shown great spirit.

"We could have scored more but we were nearly punished and we needed a few good saves from the keeper because we became a bit too conservative.

"We were hanging on a bit at the end but overall I am satisfied with 2-1."
