Arsenal attacker Bukayo Saka has revealed they were desperate to defeat Manchester United on Sunday.
Saka struck as the Gunners won 3-2 thanks to Eddie Nketiah’s 90th minute winner.
Saka said, “You can see how much it means to everyone. They’re the only team that have beaten us this season so we really wanted to beat them for the fans.
“We know how important this win is for us. It wasn’t easy and it definitely wasn’t our best start to the game but we showed a lot of character to come back and get the win.
“It’s something we can be proud of but we have to stay humble. It’s only halfway through the season and things can change very quickly.
“But if we keep playing like we have then we’ll be in a good place at the end of the season, we just have to keep it up.”
On what is behind Arsenal’s success, he added: “Firstly, the belief we have. Especially at the Emirates with our fans and how they support us. We went 1-0 down and they still support, they don’t know how much that helps us.
“It’s the way the coach is setting us up, too, and the players the coach has brought in.”
