Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he is relieved to see his side bounce back and record a valid 3-0 win over Swansea.
This will be the first of four trials in which Arsenal beat Swansea, with second half goals from Giroud, Koscielny and Campbell handing them the win.
The win was on the back of a 3-0 loss and league cup exit to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday, and Wenger feels the full three points at Selhurst Park was deserved.
“I didn’t see a foul but maybe I missed something and I have to watch it again, there’s always a diverse opinion from managers on [issues like] that,” the Frenchman told reporters, after seeing Arsenal pass 2,000 goals in his reign.
“It is always a difficult game [at Swansea], last season Swansea took six points off us so we came here a bit edgy.
“They showed quality again today, they are going through a spell with less confidence but they are a good side and our first half was difficult.
“In the second half we upped our tempo and the purpose in our passing, with added pace in our combinations, and once we scored the first goal we were the dominant team and won the game normally.
“I rested eight players at Wednesday and gave them a breather and it took us a while to get into the tempo today.
“I am proud of scoring goals because people come to see people who try to play but the most important was the three points.”
