Tottenham dominated possession but were unable to find the breakthrough as the Gunners held firm to seal a win which moved them back up to third in the Premier League table.

And Wenger was delighted by his side’s resilience against their local rivals.

“Tottenham played very well,” Wenger told BBC Sport. “We had an early lead and we juggling between protecting the lead and finishing the game off.

“We absorbed a lot of pressure from Tottenham. They gave very thing and we need a special resilience and good defensive performance.

“It was an unbelievable start with Tomas Rosicky’s goal coming from nowhere.

“Tottenham played very well. I don’t deny that at all. They put the effort in and had the quality to go forward but I don’t feel they had a lot of clear-cut chances.

“It was a must-win game. We maintained the focus to not make the mistake that would cost us.”
