Arsene Wenger on the win, Alex Iwobi's performance and the title race


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was visibly delighted after his side's easy win against Watford.

The Gunners produced one of their most convincing performances at the Emirates to ease past the Hornets as they kept their title hopes alive.

And the Frenchman was also full of praise for young Alex Iwobi who was one of the best players on the pitch.

"We played well," Wenger told Sky Sports.

"We focused on the performance today, which is all you can do in fact.

"[Alex] Iwobi is a creative player and he scores goals. He's both a midfielder and a striker, so he can be creative in his passing and he's mobile.

"I am pleased with his talent but even more with his attitude and his willingness to learn and to contribute with his teamwork.

"It doesn't matter how realistic our title challenge is - we can only believe in our own game. We just continue.

"I am happy that today we scored and didn't concede, and that brings a lot of belief back. We kept the game serious, we kept a clean sheet and we continued to play.

"Our target is to play well in the next game. We have to be very pragmatic and realistic. This is a start, but we have to keep it going and focusing on the process, the quality of the game. But today's result gives us a chance."
