Arsenal made it two wins from two in the Champions League last night after beating Italian side Napoli 2-0 at home.
Goals from Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud in the first-half were enough for Arsene Wenger’s men to claim top-spot in Group F and here is some of the reaction from last night’s encounter.
Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta:
“Considering we were playing against a top side, we played very efficiently winning the ball back and it was a very impressive first 45 minutes.
“We have the talent up front to score the goals. But there is also a hunger. Now we know that we need to win the ball back quickly, because when we win it back in the final third we are very dangerous.
“We still have players to come back from injury and they will add their own qualities.”
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger:
“I felt that we played at a good pace, technically very direct and finished with great goals. The first half was outstanding. The second half we played more with maturity, less with drive going forward, a bit more cautious, but overall and outstanding game.
“The first half was amazing, absolutely fantastic. Everything was in there. All that you dream to see when you come to watch football.
“We were solid. Flamini and Arteta contributed to that, and overall it was positive because I wanted Flamini to be very good on the counter-attack, especially with Ramsey, and that worked very well.
[On winning the first two games]:
“You cannot start better, and the next two will be deciders. That’s when we want the game to come back after the international break and have a great game against Dortmund.”
Arsenal goalscorer Olivier Giroud:
“We had a great first 45 minutes and that meant we could play our game in the second half. Mesut Ozil is a great player it is really easy to play with him.
“We have a good relationship and understanding on the field.”
