Arsenal inspired by fantastic Fabregas

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hailed skipper Cesc Fabregas after victory against Bolton in the Premier League.

A controversial red card for Gary Cahill proved to be a second half turning point in the match, but the Gunners faithful would be more interested in the return to form of their captain.

Fabregas was inspired against the notoriously tricky Trotters, leaving Wenger left to hail the performance of his Spanish star.

"We play the game he loves to play, and the game turns around him. He grew up in this team and to make it win will be his greatest achievement," Wenger reflected after the match at the Emirates.

Laurent Koschelny gave Arsenal the lead before Johan Elmander equalised just before the break. Marouane Chamakh made it 2-1 before Cahill's red, with Alex Song and Carlos Vela finishing the job for the north London side.

"We certainly wouldn't have taken six points two years ago," Wenger said after the game when referring to matches against Blackburn and Bolton.

"They provoked a very physical game. It was a good test for our centre backs today. There could have been other [red cards] but they had full commitment and we had to be patient so that our quality could prevail."

Fabregas is expected to lead Arsenal in midweek against Braga in the Champions League as the Gunners get another Champions League campaign underway.

A trip to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland awaits Arsenal next in the Premier League.
