Following successive defeats to Blackburn and Bayern Munich in the FA Cup and UEFA Champions League, respectively, the Gunners looked as they would be held on home turf by Premier League strugglers Villa.

But Santi Cazorla's 85th-minute winner earned them maximum points at the Emirates to give them a confidence boost ahead of Sunday's north London derby with Tottenham.

"We haven't had the rub of the green of late, and when we went to 80 minutes at 1-1 I did fear we wouldn't get that goal," Jenkinson told the club's official website.

"The way we were playing and the (number of) chances we created, it would have been criminal if we didn't win the game but football doesn't always go the way it should. But we got the goal we deserved and I am delighted with it.

"In the league our form has been good, but other results haven't been what we wanted. Sometimes that happens in football and we had to react.

"We are going into a huge game next Sunday and it is nice to get a good result going into that. Hopefully it will give us the belief and confidence we need to go there and win.

"You want to play in all the big games and it doesn't get much bigger than playing Spurs.

"I just hope we can go there and play the way we can play and get the result I know we are capable of."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
