Arsenal 'Completely Dominated' Manchester City During Victory At Eastlands - Arsene Wenger

"This will help us in the march forward," says boss

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hailed the performance put in by his side in the 3-0 victory over Manchester City on Sunday.

The Gunners travelled to Eastlands and largely dominated against a 10-man City, who had young defender Dedryck Boyata sent off during the early stages of the match.

The visitors then managed to score three times, as Samir Nasri, Alex Song and Nicklas Bendtner got their names onto the score sheet.

And having ended their big game hoodoo, the Frenchman believes that the victory could give the squad the impetus needed to achieve success.

"For us it was important to us to get a win in a big place, to strengthen belief of the squad and continue our march forward," Wenger told reporters after the match.

"I think we did it today with calm intelligence and overall the needed performance to play against 10 men.

"I think collectively we completely dominated the game.

"I hope that will give us the belief and confidence to take into other games."

Arsenal are now in second place in the Premier League by virtue of a superior goal difference over Manchester United and City.
