Wenger: 'It's fantastic to watch him play'

On Theo...

"He is slowly getting there. You're confident now when he gets in front of goal that he will score. Of course he scored an important one today at a moment where the game was a bit 50-50.

"Theo has an outstanding attitude and I don't rule anybody out. If I did then I would not bring him on in a crucial moment in the game. I believe in him.

"Gervinho looked a bit tired and Theo made the difference. He scored the second goal and that is the most important one."

On Cazorla...

"I think he was overall a delight to watch. From the first to the last minute today. He was very influential in our team and it's fantastic to watch him play."

On the opposition...

"You never can completely control Carroll for 90 minutes. You have to fight for him and be good on the second ball. The problem with West Ham is not only Carroll, but Nolan on the second ball in the box.

"We could have been punished once or twice but overall we gave it all to deal well with him. Carroll was really up for it I must say. He did fight from the first to the last minute. We did quite well."
