Arsene Wenger on the performance of Danny Welbeck and Nacho Monreal


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for his goalscorers after last night's impressive win against Manchester United.

Defender Nacho Monreal kept his cool in front of goal to fire the Gunners in front in the early stages of the game.

And striker Danny Welbeck was as equally cool to score the winning goal of the game and make the best possible return to Old Trafford.

"We all want to do well when we play against our former club to show that we are a great player but it's not easy to deal with the mental situation," Wenger told the club's official website.

"He [Danny Welbeck] focused just on his game and didn't do anything special, he just played football like you want him to play.

"He has shown mental strength because that's not always easy to deal with.

"What I like with Danny is that he's intelligent, he wants to do well for the team, he's a great talent and recently he has done extremely well for the national team as well.

"He has shown today when you can produce such a complete performance offensively and defensively, he has a great future."

And on Nacho Monreal, the Frenchman said: "Nacho's had a great season until now and I'm very happy that he scored.

"He provoked the penalty at Manchester City as well and today he scored. He had a great game."
