Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that the gunners' win over Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League was necessary, and that discipline from his team paid off.
Arsenal defeated Bayern Munich 2-0, with goals from Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil to win their first game in group F after losing the first two.
"We had an absolute necessity to win the game and we did it in an intense and disciplined way," Wenger said in his post-match interview, reports arsenal.com.
"It was a top level game between two top-level teams. Bayern had more possession than us but we decided to make it tight in our final third and catch them on the break.
"The last part of the game where we went longer and used long balls we could play more in their half and they struggled. I think they dropped a bit physically as well but overall I think we have beaten a very strong team and kept a good level focus from the first to the last minute and kept a clean sheet as well."
It is another impressive win from Arsenal after beating Manchester United 3-0 before the international break.
