โ€œStefan was excellent out there. He was the difference between 3-1 and anything worse. โ€œThis Arsenal team is the best that I have seen. They are a fantastic side - big, strong, fit and quick. โ€œThey are a bigger club now. Everything about Arsenal is right. Theyโ€™re the team to beat now.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
