The Spaniard was pleased with the result and performance of his team ahead of a huge clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford this weekend.

Speaking to BT Sport shortly after the final whistle,the Arsenal head coach said: “I think we made it look easy because we were very disciplined.

“We took it seriously and we were at it right from the beginning because the dangers when you aren’t 100 per cent any team can cause you problems.

“We made a lot of changes, gave opportunities to other players. They deserved that and played well…”

The Spaniard wants his players to turn up in style and not hold back when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford this weekend.

“After losing the way we lost against Leicester, it was painful at home and took us a few days to digest that defeat,” he continued.

“But you have to react straightaway with a win, with this type of attitude and let’s get ready.

“We go to Old Trafford and we try to win again.”
