Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is convinced they're improving at the back after victory at Wigan Athletic.

Wenger was delighted with the resilience his side showed, and believes it augers well for the rest of the campaign.

“You could see that defensively we are getting better as a unit, as a team,” he told Arsenal Player. “That is one of the positives of the day.

“We won the game in the end because we really wanted the points but we were hanging on a bit in the last 30 minutes. I am very happy that we made it in the end but we were on the ropes a bit.

“We made a demonstration offensively against Reading [when we won 5-2], but here it was more of a demonstration of defensive efficiency. I hope in the next game that we can produce the two together."
