Szczesny Praises Defence After Win Against Spurs

Szczesny Praises Defence After Win Against Spurs

Arsenal goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny, says he was impressed with the way his defence nullified Spurs attack for most of the afternoon.

Arsenal`s defensive unit were solid as a rock as Spurs piled on the pressure in the NLD on Sunday, but impressive displays from Koscielny & Mertesacker in particular ensured the Gunner`s 1 goal lead remained in tact.

The Polish stopper hailed the defending as fantastic and that they limited Spurs to few chances (one of which he admits to gifting them).

'It has been that way away from home sometimes, we concentrated on defending. said Szczesny after the game.

'They did not create any chances and the only one they did have [from Nacer Chadli] I pretty much gifted them."

'We were fantastic defensively. We scored early so they were always going to dominate the possession. But the two centre backs were outstanding then Thomas Vermaelen came on and we played with three centre back. He did well as well.'

'Overall it was a huge win for us. We knew that Chelsea had dropped points against Villa and we have to take advantage of that. It was very pleasing to get a win at White Hart Lane after quite a few years.'
