Highlights: Arsenal comeback to beat West Ham | Video | News

Written by parkingfinds

Martin Audegaard was awarded the Most Valuable Player award against West Ham on Boxing Day with two assists in an excellent attack.

The captain was one of the few players in the starting line-up not to play in the World Cup and said he used the break “in a good way”.

Here’s the full transcript of his post-match interview…

About halftime remarks…

I think I said, “Keep playing, keep believing, keep doing the same thing.” We had to make some adjustments, but I think we played quite well in the first half. With just a missed goal, they scored from nothing. But I think we played well and kept doing a lot of the same things. Then in the second half we had space. I think he was tired at the end, but it was a really great, great performance.

To keep up the momentum from November…

I think that’s the job we did. We had a few players in the World Cup, but the players here have worked hard. We had a really great camp in Dubai, played some good matches and worked really hard. I think everyone is hungry to come back and prove that we are good enough to be here.Hard work and huge commitment to the club.

with my own playing…

i felt good today. I think the whole team was good. I didn’t play in the World Cup, so I had more rest than other players. So I feel good that I was able to take advantage of that.

To Eddie’s goal…

It was a great goal. I think the overall build-up was good and his turn and finish in the box was good. I’m really, really happy that he came and gave a performance like this. So I am very happy for him.

On putting pressure on Manchester City…

Yes, but like we said many times, we are focused on ourselves. I don’t really care about other teams. We are just focused on ourselves. Stay humble. Find the next game and win that game. It’s all that matters.
