Gunners pleased after 'tough' win

Published Add your comment

Arsenal assistant coach Steve Bould admits the weekend defeat to Chelsea affected his side's confidence but was nevertheless happy with his side's 3-1 victory in Wednesday night's Champions League tie with Olympiacos.

The Gunners came into the Group B clash fresh from a disappointing 2-1 loss to their London rivals at Emirates Stadium on Saturday. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger spoke about making amends for that defeat in the build-up, but this evening saw his side stutter against the Greek champions.

The Frenchman was in the stands as he is in the midst of a three-game touchline ban and his man on the ground, Bould, knows the scoreline flattered the hosts. "We've won the game, it is a great result for us," the assistant coach said. "We made it tough."
