“I'm happy with my performance but especially I'm happy with the team,” he told Arsenal Player.
“We managed to win a really difficult game against a really difficult opponent who basically killed us last week. So a response was important and we did that so we're all happy.
“For sure [there was extra motivation] because it was a short space between the last game and this one, so obviously it's going to stay in our heads and we needed to respond really well.
“I'm just happy that we won, that I helped the team. It could have been a similar story because we started again a bit slow - in the first few minutes they had two really good chances. I managed to help the team in those situations.
“After I was kind of focused on every single chance that they had or any through balls because I think it's really important to sweep up all those things where there is a chance. I just try to help the team and luckily enough I think I did OK.”
