Arsene Wenger breathed a huge sigh of relief after watching Arsenal snatch a 1-0 victory over Barclays Premier League strugglers West Ham.

Alex Song's late header denied the struggling Hammers a deserved point at the Emirates Stadium after Robert Green, in front of watching England assistant boss Franco Baldini, had pulled off a string of fine saves to keep the Gunners at bay.

"When you win with two minutes to go, it is always a relief," Wenger said.

"We needed to be patient, intelligent and not to make a mistake at the back against a team who had a strong spirit and were well organised.

"We did not do anything stupid, kept trying to be intelligent and that got us the goal.

"I was thinking it was one of those days when the ball went onto the post and came back into the goalkeeper's hands, that is not a good sign.

"But we kept going and out of this game we have once again shown a great attitude."
