Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was delighted after his side eased past West Bromwich Albion on Thursday night.
The Gunners desperately needed all three points to keep their Top Four hopes alive and they didn't disappoint as Alexis Sanchez' grabbed both goals in the first half.
The win means Arsenal are now third in the table, ten points from the top and two points above fourth-placed Manchester City.
"I believe we dominated from the start to the last minute, in fact what we did against Crystal Palace," Wenger said.
"Overall I believe the quality of our game was very good. Maybe, we could have scored more goals. That is the only thing you could say tonight. We didn't concede and couldn't finish the game off the way we wanted.
"You look at the time like us, every point is important at the moment. I think we are under permanent pressure in every single game so it is important to have the lead and focus on the way we want to play football.
"We want to finish as high as possible. You never know what happens in front of you. There can still be twists and turns but we want to win our games.
"We came out of West Ham and Crystal Palace thinking we had produced the quality and didn't get the points. If you look at our last five games, we won at Everton, we won against Watford, we had two draws and we won today.
"The regret we have is being in the lead against West Ham and being in the lead against Crystal Palace and not getting the points. I don't know where we'll finish but we have to give everything in every game.
"We go to Sunderland, Sunderland fight not to go down. That will be a battle and we have to prepare for that."
