Sanchez, Giroud send Arsenal up to fifth

Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had picked up a hamstring injury but Wenger said that the injury was not serious.

"Overall it was a very convincing win", explained the Arsenal manager. We knew that coming here is not easy to play, it's a good team, a team that like to play.

A third FA Cup Final in four years awaits Arsenal later this month, as they face double-chasing Chelsea.

The North London based outfit still need to close the three point gap with fourth-placed City if they are to book Champions League football next season.

Alexis Sanchez went on to give Arsenal the lead on the hour mark, losing two defenders before finding the net.

The Chilean has now scored 20 Premier League goals for Arsenal this season, and what a way to do it.

"I felt that, if you look at individual performances, you couldn't be disappointed from the goalkeeper right through to Danny Welbeck. You can see that the team is together, fights and is ready for it and we have to recover now physically and see how everybody is for Saturday and see do I need to make some changes". Liverpool's next game is at West Ham, who are now riding high after shutting down Tottenham's nine game win streak and will probably not be the pushover we all hope they will be on Sunday.

"It was a hard game but we expected that and I believed in the second half we could score the goals that we didn't in the first half because we created more space".

"The goal he scored tonight shows what he's about: very good technique in a short space". "Alexis, he always grows during the game. Alexis is always a slow starter in games but he gets stronger and stronger". For the moment it's between him and Welbeck, it's always hard to decide.

Following the reports explaining this situation, both clubs will surely have in mind what they have to do.

And the Frenchman said he never doubted his players during their sticky run which still threatens to cost them a place at Europe's top table. One moment, when the forward instinctively swivelled to flick the ball into the path of the onrushing Ozil, was probably the Gunners' best piece of attacking interplay in the first half, although the Germany star was denied by a fine last-ditch tackle from the youngster Stephens. We know what we want to achieve: "we can just focus on our next game now".
