Wenger happy with Arsenal victory

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted with the performance and result in his side’s 7-1 win over Blackburn, but insisted that he will not get carried away, PA reports. A hat-trick from Robin van Persie, two from youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and a late strike from Thierry Henry gave the Gunners all three points.

Wenger’s side got their first victory of 2012 at the Emirates Stadium and moved themselves into fifth place, two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. The Arsenal boss will be more focused on the three points and is happy that his side’s performances are starting to merit victories.

‘I do not give much importance to the seven goals, it is just we won and played well. I felt that recently we had quite good performances but did not get the results. Today we got the performance and the result, which is ideally what you want. We remained serious and were guided by the way we want to play football and not by any extravagant individualism. We were mature and serious, we played together until the end’, Wenger said.

The Gunners travel to the Stadium of Light next weekend to face Sunderland and will be hoping they can pick up another victory as they look to reach the top four. Arsenal will be hopeful that Manchester United can defeat Chelsea and then Tottenham beat Liverpool, so the Gunners remain tight to the top four.
