Moyes says his record at Sunderland is 'damning'

"Mentally, Olivier is absolutely fantastic".

Wenger and Co. are level atop the table after 10 rounds, only adrift of Manchester City on goal difference following Saturday's 4-1 rout of lowly Sunderland.

Victory extended the London club's unbeaten run in all competitions to 14 games.

Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe says the squad must not dwell on their record-equalling worst start to a Premier League campaign and instead keep their eyes focused on the battles ahead as they bid to survive yet another relegation dogfight.

"Arsenal were very good in the opening part of the game and they made it very hard". I don't feel good about it but you've got to take it.

"He's a guy who has gone through some hard times, he was even questioned by the crowd before the European Championship in France". I think you need more.

Alexis Sanchez also scored twice as Arsenal made light of the absence of eight-goal joint top scorer Theo Walcott, who was left out to rest a minor injury.

The Wales global, who had been sidelined since the opening-day defeat to Liverpool, came on as a second-half substitute. That's where he is not happy but he can play there as well. We warranted a goal and we looked more likely to score a goal than at any time during the game.

Over Wenger's 20 years in charge Arsenal have averaged little over 1.5 points per game in November, a significantly lower tally than in many other months, and it has often been a decisive period for the Gunners' early season ambitions.

"The odds are damning, but the bookies have to do their job and they have to do what they think is right", he said.

We wanted not to let them gain confidence and to dictate the game from the start on. We have a very good team cohesion.

Wenger: "Overall I feel it was important for us to win today, because we had won six [in a row] and then drew at home last weekend, which was disappointing. If we were going in blasting every player, I don't think things will necessarily get any better".

The unlucky Black Cats were thrashed 4-1 at home by Arsenal on Saturday - their eighth defeat of the season - and they remain winless from their opening 10 games.

Nevertheless, under-pressure manager David Moyes insisted he could still turn things around.

Sunday Mirror Football Columnist, Andy Dunn, was also on the show and he believes the players Moyes brought in players who were available, as opposed to "prizing them away" from clubs.
