"Many of them I am delighted with, the injured players who been out for so long they worked so hard we are so glad to have them back, to add numbers to the squad. [Alexandre] Lacazaette it was great to have him on the score sheet, some really good individual performances and some of the good from the young boys as well.”

"The club has made such an effort to make sure today everything was set up in the right way so hopefully the fans had a good night, they were tremendous for us."

Arteta later talked about his plan to make a few alternations to their starting XI on Sunday adding:

"We've seen that a lot of players playing on a Thursday who have strong performances in Europa who then play on the Saturday as well, so yes I will be thinking about this performance [when picking the team]."
