Arsene Wenger claimed that the team had to get the crucial victory at the Liberty Stadium not just for the points, but for the psychological aspect as well.
Arsenal have previously struggled immensely against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium. It has been one of their unlucky grounds during the recent Premier League campaigns.This time around, Arsenal enjoyed the rub of the green and coasted to a 3-0 win against Swansea. Following the game, Wenger stated that it was extremely important that Arsenal finally broke the hoodoo in terms of winning at the Liberty Stadium.
The gunners keep touch with Manchester City at the top of the table, but it remains to be seen if they can go all the way. Arsenal, in the past, have been in a title race but unable to keep the momentum to the end. The Premier League may become a two horse race if it continues in the present trend with only City and Arsenal involved. United drew their fourth consecutive game – in all competitions – to slip four points behind table leaders City. Olivier Giroud opened the scoring before Laurent Koscielny and Campbell made a comfortable victory. It was also a redemption for Arsenal after their 3-0 shock defeat against Sheffield Wednesday.
“It’s always a difficult game here and last season they took six points from us. We were a bit edgy coming here and the first half was very difficult for us.But in the second half there was tempo to our game and after we scored the first goal we were a different team.I rested eight players on Tuesday [in the Capital One Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday] so it took us a while to get into the tempo of the game. It was a different game after we scored the first goal,” said Wenger.
