Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted after his side registered a much-needed win against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
The Gunners battled past the German champions by 2-0 at the Emirates to keep their Champions League hopes alive.
Unfortunately, they will be without midfielder Aaron Ramsey for weeks after the Welshman suffered yet another hamstring injury.
"We had an absolute necessity to win the game and we did it in an intense and disciplined way," Wenger said.
"It was a top level game between two top-level teams. Bayern had more possession than us but we decided to make it tight in our final third and catch them on the break.
"The last part of the game where we went longer and used long balls we could play more in their half and they struggled.
"I think they dropped a bit physically as well but overall I think we have beaten a very strong team and kept a good level focus from the first to the last minute and kept a clean sheet as well.
"He [Petr Cech] was important. I think he kept us in the game and you can say the same for Neuer. We had two top, top, top world-class keepers on the pitch today and that of course was vital on both sides.
"He [Aaron Ramsey] is alright but very down because he told me that his hamstring is quite a tough one. He is out."
