ARSENAL star Francis Coquelin says Arsenal showed character in their Premier League win over Sunderland yesterday.
Arsenal beat Sunderland 4-1 after braces from Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud.
The Gunners remain second in the table, level on points at the top with Manchester City and Liverpool.
And Coquelin believes his side are showing progress from last season.
“This year we have got strong character, we have shown that in the past,” he told Arsenal Player.
“I want to praise the players who came on against Sunderland because every time they come on they do the job.
“Olivier got a brace, Aaron also came on and was great as well, and the young lad Ainsley Maitland-Niles was really good.
“Everyone is fighting and it was a massive win.
“The character we are showing at the moment is great, plus the fans – home and away – have been great, so that is an extra boost for us as well.”
Tottenham travel to the Emirates next Sunday for Arsenal’s next league game.
