It was a very important and hard-fought victory by The Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.
Michael Turner opened the scoring in the 57th minute with a header from a Robert Snodgrass' free-kick after a number of first-half Arsenal chances. Mikel Arteta converted a suspect penalty late on to give Arsenal hope, and Olivier Giroud and second-half substitute Lukas Podolski finished the turnaround.
My man of the match goes to Theo Walcott. His introduction injected directness and pace into the attack.
Gervinho played particularly poorly; his decision making and selfishness hampered the team's attacking play. I expect Podolski to start on Tuesday.
Wenger said: "I thought we wouldn’t give in, and fight until the end. We have great attitude, spirit and desire and it got us there. We deserved to win but we were against a strong side and needed something special.”
Hughton said: "A decision has gone against us that a linesman has given from 45 to 50 yards away and the referee is less than 10 yards away. For a linesman to give it from that distance, and the third goal was offside and it was 10 yards away from him, it’s almost criminal on a day that we deserved so much more.”
Overall an extremely important result to put the pressure back on Tottenham and Chelsea.
