Bacary Sagna was delighted to be on the scoresheet in Arsenal's victory over Tottenham.

Sagna's strike was his first since November 2010 and the right back admits there was no better time to notch only his third Premier League goal.

"I knew the ball was going to come back to me and that is why I stayed forward," he told

"I wanted to score especially because the first game away was difficult for me. I am just very, very happy because this was a day to score."
