Speaking about Sunday’s clash, Mikel Arteta said: “The game went exactly according to plan. I told them [the players] yesterday that was going to happen.
“I didn’t want to tell the crowd so there was a bit of emotion there! We all worked so hard and plan everything to live moments like this.
“Those moments are going to stick with us. To see the crowd so connected with the team again and celebrate in a big match is something great.”
It took Arsenal less than a minute to equal the score on Sunday following Manchester United’s opening goal at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners kept pushing and got the three points in the end, scoring twice in added time to keep up pace in the Premier League title race.
