Arsenal finally won against a top side and boy did the players enjoy it.

Tweeting after the game, a few of the players couldn’t contain their delight at winning 2-0 against the Champions in their own back yard.

Goals from Santi Cazorla from the penalty spot and Olivier Giroud, rising up to head home a Santi freekick meant that the points were heading back to London and, more importantly, the burden of not being able to beat a top side lifted.

Here’s what the players had to say after the game on their Twitter (which I tried to embed but wouldn’t work, images linked to original tweets) and Instagram accounts:
