Arsene Wenger: ” We were fortunate with the goals”

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admitted that his side enjoyed some good fortune today as the Gunners beat Swansea City 4-0 at the Liberty Stadium with the help of a couple of own goals from Jack Cork and Kyle Naughton from Alex Iwobi’s crosses.

Wenger shared after the game, “The first half was very intense physically, they gave a lot in the first half and then our pace took over. They had problems to contain us.

“Swansea were very well organised and they closed down as a unit very well. We lost balls in the first 20-25 minutes which was down to them. In the second half, you could see we could create chances. Our transition and accuracy of passing was very good. We were fortunate with the goals, but the chances were there,” Wenger added.

Up next for Arsenal is the visit of high flying Burnley to the Emirates with The Clarets up to 12th place courtesy of a 1-0 win at home today against Southampton.
