Declan Rice, the midfielder of Arsenal, believes that they did everything to win this game.

"We're only 10 games or so into the season. We're just warming up and getting into our rhythm. Our focus turns back to the league and it's a massive game on Sunday."

Rice signed a long-term contract with Premier League team Arsenal on July.
