A fine finish from Santi Cazorla put Arsenal ahead in the first half and then midfielder Aaron Ramsey continued his prolific goalscoring form with a brilliant second as Wenger's men clinched a 2-0 win in the top-of-the table clash.
"It was a convincing win against a good team, and that's what we wanted. Of course everybody was waiting to see how we responded today, and we did that in a very positive manner," Wenger told Sky Sports 1.
"We got a good goal, and after that I felt we had many opportunities to make the difference and then Ramsey scored a stunning goal, but we had chances before and after. But overall what you want is good focus, great dynamic in the team and overall it was a very convincing performance."
