Dear Arsenal supporter,
We were delighted to get back to winning ways against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
It was important we won after losing our last two games. We had to wait for our chance and make sure we took it.
I was happy with the result because our confidence was a bit jaded.
QPR have quality and I don't think they will stay at the bottom of the league. We were a bit lucky they had Stephane Mbia sent off, because it made it easier for us to find a winner in the last 20 minutes. We played a serious game against a good team.
I made the decision to start Jack Wilshere and was impressed with his performance. Technically he was excellent and overall he produced a classy performance.
I didn't tell Jack I would be starting him until the morning of the game. Sometimes I think it's better to not have much time to think about the game when you have been out for such a long time. I also included him because I thought a player with his experience and class would give the team a lift.
We'll have to see how he responds from the game. He was kicked on Saturday and had no problem, which is a good sign.
It was also a big positive for us to see Bacary Sagna make his return. He did well and is physically ready.
Thanks for your support.
