Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for his side after a hard-fought win against Leicester City on Sunday.
The Gunners cut the deficit at the top of the table to just two points after Danny Welbeck's last-minute goal at the Emirates.
And the Frenchman was delighted with the never-die-attitude showed by his players.
"The effort, energy, intensity was all good," Wenger told BBC Sport.
"Leicester defended very well but we had bad luck to be 1-0 down at half-time. We were relentless after that - we should have scored more goals.
"Mesut Ozil was fouled in the build up to Leicester's goal and the penalty looked very harsh. I'll have to look again but it didn't look like one.
"It was a pivotal moment today because the mathematics meant it could be eight points or it could be two points. That is a great change.
"There's a long way to go, we play a lot of big teams.
"But we had a bad spell where we couldn't win for four games and have now won two on the bounce. We have come out of that bad spell and still have a good chance."
