Arsene Wenger and Sam Allardyce always seems to be a grudge match, and yesterdays game started early with the insults flying in left, right and centre during the week, but Wenger got the last laugh when his Arsenal took the points in a 2-1 win.
Wenger admitted that it wasn’t an easy win. He said: “We were a bit lucky at some stages but overall we showed really good commitment.
“If you have ambition in this league you have got to win at Blackburn.
“If you fail to win at Blackburn – if you go to clubs like that and you don’t win – your ambition will not be respected by the other teams so it was an important test for us.
“The players are committed and we had that little bit more experience today, even if on just one or two occasions we were a bit lucky.”
Look out for Theo Walcott’s great opener….
