“It’s the first big one we’ve had over the last few years where there was a lot of pressure, and a lot of points to play for in a big Champions League push. So it was nice to come out on top.

“That [first] game [at the Emirates Stadium] was a really disappointing day for us, away against them.

“ I think we had that in the back of our minds.

“We had a real determination to go out there and win tonight.

“And we put in a great performance from start to finish.

“Credit to the boys, credit to the staff who worked really hard throughout the whole week, to prepare for this game, and we delivered on the night.”
