We will see how Chelsea respond next season, says Arsene Wenger

"That's Alexis, you know".

Arsene Wenger on Alexis Sanchez and his cool finish: "The goal he scored tonight shows what he's about: very good technique in a short space".

Collecting Mesut Ozil's pass inside the box, Sanchez feigned to shoot with his right but brought the ball back to his left and calmly slotted past Fraser Forster to mark his 100th Premier League appearance with a goal. "Once he has the ball in the box, he's unsafe", Wenger told Sky Sports.

Arsenal: "Traditionally there is a fierce rivalry and they had always a very direct game against us. I think we did well being patient in the first half".

None of the guests' last eight league away games have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 16/5 (4.20) on them being forced to settle for a single point in this one.

"We had a consistent performance from the first to the last minute", said Wenger.

Arsenal side face Southampton in the English Premier League (EPL) on Wednesday and a win would lift them into fifth position.

"So I have been following the Premier League for years now and I have always enjoyed watching Arsenal play - I like the way they play.

He's gone through a hard period when he came back from his ankle injury but I never questioned his attitude and I think he has a great spirit". "We went through a bad patch".

"Recently we shot ourselves in the foot against Tottenham, because we did not get any points and obviously we left ourselves in the situation where we have to keep winning every game", said Cech.

"I know we can go forward and score goals". Now we have three games and we have to give everything like we did today and hopefully, we'll achieve our goals. "So let's just continue".

Arsenal moved above Manchester United into fifth on 66 points.

They are now three points behind West Brom, who are in eighth place, and the Saints will be looking to win this match which is their game in hand on the teams above them.

"We are aware we need to win all our remaining games to be in the race for the Champions League".

Arsenal are fretting over the fitness of midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after the England worldwide limped off during the Premier League win over Southampton at St Mary's.

"We were focused and I felt that when we suffered we stuck together", he said.
