Xhaka: From first minute Arsenal were better than Tottenham

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus was delighted scoring in victory over Tottenham.

Gabriel struck in today's 3-1 win at Emirates stadium.

He said: "To be honest it's the second time I scored in a derby. The first was for Brazil against Argentina. I'm very happy, I want to score in every game and the way team played from the first minute showed how we wanted to play.

"We deserved to win, I don't know how many chances we created. I am feeling at home because of the guys, the staff, the club and it's helped a lot. I'm really happy here and we are in a good way."

Fellow goalscorer Granit Xhaka also said: "We didn't have a lot of weeks to prepare because of the international break, but we saw yesterday in training that we were ready.

"From the first second I think we were the better team. After we conceded we were struggling a little bit, but in the second half we were much better and I am so happy to score and help the team to win. My first derby goal in England. I'm more than happy to help the team. The team is the most important thing."
