"He pops up when you need it. He is a leader and that is the best definition of a leader. When you need it he shows the example. He did that against Manchester United in the last seconds. It shows he is a winner.

"I'm not sure I would have jumped behind Cech because I think I would have thought he would have taken the ball. Arsenal is a special club. William this season has taken that on board and he is completely the leader and represents how we want to behave.

"He is transformed completely, does a lot of things with the team but also off the pitch which are great for the club.

"Liverpool have had the biggest disappointment but they are not out of it. Neither are Chelsea because they showed today they are a good team.

"We are confident. The belief is there but I prefer that it remains a four horse race because it is more interesting. It makes a day like today great for the Premier League. As long as there are four teams in it the interest in the Premier League is even bigger.

"We have shown great character in the fight today, in the one-to-one duels. We were dominant on that front and that is not the case usually."
