Mikel Arteta described Arsenal’s win at Cardiff City as a “big statement” after the Gunners maintained their place at the top of the Premier League table.

Two goals from Aaron Ramsey and a strike from Mathieu Flamini secured a convincing 3-0 victory for Arsene Wenger’s men as the north Londoners preserved their four-point lead at the top of the table.

And midfielder Arteta feels that Arsenal deserve credit for sealing a win at a ground where both Manchester clubs have dropped points this season.

“Every away game in the Premier League is very tough,” Arteta told Arsenal Player. “Considering they beat Man City here and they drew against Man United, just shows you what a tough place this is.

“For us it’s a big statement to come here and get the points, to score three goals away from home is very important. We got another clean sheet as well so we’re full of confidence.

“I think we looked really solid again, we kept another clean sheet which is very important for us because up front we know we have the ability to score. It’s a great three points – we are delighted.”
