Wenger: 'Overall it was a deserved victory'

"There is more to come from him. From 19-22 you go from a young boy to a man - but even now he can dominate a game. He can develop physically, but he has a big authority on the pitch already."

"When you look at his chances this season, you are not surprised he scores. But the longer it goes without a goal the more difficult it becomes. You could see from the way he celebrated his goal on Saturday that it was an obsession. You could see from the relief that he got that it was a weight off his shoulders."

And on the performance in general....

"I never thought it would slip away. We did not expect them to come back to 1-1 - but for five minutes before half-time we wobbled a bit. It was a mental blow and we had to recover.

"They made it tight in the second half and we needed patience and composure. It was a question of not making a mistake. Overall it was a deserved victory and you could see a lot of potential in the team."

"Diaby has double vision. I do not think it is a problem, but we did not want to take a risk."

"We want to finish as high as possible and we are eight points clear of the non-automatic Champions League qualifier."
