Wenger hails Gunners backline

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted with his defence after the Gunners battled to a 1-0 victory at Everton to move up third place in the Barclays Premier League.

The result at Goodison was the Gunners' sixth successive top-flight win and saw them leapfrog Tottenham. In their sequence of wins, Arsenal have continually shown their attacking prowess - they had hit the net 18 times in the five league matches prior to this one - and Wenger was pleased to see his team demonstrate that they also have quality at the back.

"We were resilient, focused and showed a great desire to defend - our defence played very well tonight," said Wenger.
