The 25-year-old could not hide his delight at the result. "The whole crowd, everything — it's buzzing around the place. When a team's at the top of their game, everything happens for them. Everything's happening for us at the moment," he told Sky Sports.
"It's always nice to get goals, especially at the Emirates. The fans have been fantastic to me. My little boy was there as well which was fantastic to see. The finish was great but it was all about the three points in the end. The first half was quite cautious.
They came at us and they had a game plan, they pressurised us, and going it at half-time 1-0 was probably just deserved. Second half I couldn't think of a (more) one-sided game. It was a great victory and it's always important to get a lot of goals."
