Cech and Koscielny react on Twitter to Arsenal victory over Spurs

Key Arsenal stars sat out the win but expressed delight at the result.

Arsenal re-asserted their dominance over rivals Tottenham, much to the delight of their players.

Those who were not involved were cheering the club on in the North London derby, and expressed their satisfaction with the 2-1 win.

The Gunners confounded their doubters by recording an away win, courtesy of a surprise brace from midfielder Mathieu Flamini.

Petr Cech, Laurent Koscielny, and Hector Bellerin, all rested, were among those to send messages via Twitter.


All three players are likely to be back involved for Arsenal at the weekend against Leicester City, and can expect to return to a buoyant dressing room tomorrow morning.

Mathieu Flamini could not have picked a better time to step up, with Francis Coquelin ruled out of the game with injury.

Arsenal had suffered two straight defeats prior to the game, and despite the absence of Bellerin, Koscielny and Cech, Arsene Wenger sent out a strong side to ensure the Gunners won the game.

The next round of the Capital One Cup sees them visit Sheffield Wednesday, who knocked out Newcastle United.
