Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hailed his players after their 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

The Gunners made it seven straight league wins to capitalise on Tottenham's goalless draw at Chelsea with goals from Kieran Gibbs, Theo Walcott and Mikel Arteta.

Wenger said: "I felt it was a very dynamic, fluent performance in the first half with top technical quality.

"It was a controlled performance in the second half, but our fatigue came in a bit because we gave a lot at Everton on Wednesday night.

"We have consistency at the moment, so let's go home and wait for the next game.

"We have gone through difficult times, we have learned that nothing is guaranteed and we must keep humility and focus to finish the season in a strong, convincing way."
