Arsene Wenger refused to get carried away with Arsenal's 7-1 thrashing of 10-man Blackburn at Emirates Stadium, where captain Robin van Persie fired a hat-trick and England youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain grabbed a brace.

Wenger, though, wants to keep things in perspective and said: "I do not give much importance to the seven goals, it is just we won and played well.

"I felt that recently we had quite good performances but did not get the results. Today we got the performance and the result, which is ideally what you want."
