Arsene Wenger Glad Arsenal Secured Important Wigan Athletic Win

Owen WatsonCorrespondent ISeptember 20, 2009

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is pleased his side secured a vital win against Wigan Athletic and got the Gunners' Premier League ambitions back on track.

"We scored many goals and didn't concede, and three days after a very physically demanding game in Liege, it is good to see we could repeat a good performance," Wenger told Sky Sports.

"We have shown the right attitude and quality today and I am very optimistic there is something special in this team."

Wenger reserved particular praise for Thomas Vermaelen, who scored twice in Arsenal's 4-0 victory this afternoon.

"He scored two great goals," said Wenger. "He has a great left foot and can score these kind of goals."

The Arsenal boss admitted that securing three points was his solitary aim in this fixture, having lost the last two Premier League games against Manchester United and Manchester City.

"If you don't get points, you are quickly off the pace in the Premier League, so this was a big game for us and it was important to get three points," conceded the Arsenal chief.

"But in the first four games we played three away games and we have only played twice at home now," he pointed out.
